An exhibition of Art and Textiles by Janet Aughey and Jenny Davies

Monday 27 September -  Friday 12 November 2021


Janet Aughey - Painter: 

My paintings are mainly watercolour but sometimes with the use of collage and printing materials to create realistic but interpretive pieces.

I have lived near the sea all my life and this has been a big influence in my work. I also grew up near fields and farms and so love a rusty building or two!! The textures of rocks, rust and the movement of the sea are always inspiring.

I am also inspired by an industrial landscape on the edge of nature which is reflected in this exhibition and when combined with derelict buildings I can’t help but wonder who had been there and what had they seen and done?

To recreate these scenes sometimes I use pure, clean, crisp watercolour but at other times I select papers / ink / printing materials to develop the sense of age and dereliction I find most appealing. I feel the contrasting media echo the friction between nature and industry.​​​​​​


Jenny Davies - Textile Artist:

I get great pleasure from being creative in many forms.

I use textiles, paint, dye and print in my work and include stitch by hand and machine.

My art is a way of translating the beautiful colours, shapes and forms I see around me. Living by the coast offers endless inspiration and influences the colours that I use.

The pieces in this exhibition have come about spontaneously from my collection of beach finds, dyed and painted papers that I have built up over time, which I then work into to build up layers.
