Iona Stern, ‘A Place in Time’

Through hidden coves to enchanted cottage gardens, abstract landscapes sing with colour in this captivating new exhibition of prints and paintings from Ealing artist Iona Stern.

This marks her first solo exhibition at For Arts Sake, which she describes as “a collection of memories… My work is a visual diary – whether it’s a place visited or an exhibition seen. I look for the abstract, the ‘big picture’, rather than the incidental”.

'A Place in Time' brings together acrylic and oil paintings and monotype silkscreen prints, which take us on a journey through Cornish bays, via purple fields of heather to the dying days of summer and into the clear eastern light of the Yorkshire Moors.

Iona is a former ad agency creative director who quit to pursue a career as a full-time artist in 2011. She lives and works from her home studio, a converted former stable in Haven Green.

The Trial of Charles I
Jan

2:00 PM14:00

The Trial of Charles I

The execution of Charles I in 1649 is a defining moment in British history following a bitter and protracted Civil War that was fought across the three Stuart kingdoms. The trial acted as a final attempt to have the king acknowledge his military defeat by Parliament’s forces and was the precursor to the creation of the English republic.

Dr Neil Johnston of The National Archives considers the charges laid against the king, his attitude and conduct, and reassess whether regicide was inevitable.

The talk will focus on the contemporary record of the trial that was produced by the clerks of the high court of justice and is now held by The National Archives, which will also be on display.

Pitzhanger Manor opening exhibition: Anish Kapoor

  • Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

For the inaugural exhibition at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, Anish Kapoor will present a series of sculptures, some previously unseen in Britain, that engage the viewer and their surroundings in a constantly fluctuating form.

Within the newly restored gallery, with its three circular skylights, Kapoor’s sculptures challenge our traditional notion of form and space by disorientating the viewer and transforming their surroundings.

Anish Kapoor (b.1954 in Mumbai) has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s. One of the most influential sculptors of his generation, his invention of sculptural language and form has constantly challenged the way we view the world. Large-scale commissions include Marsyas (2002), for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Leviathan at the Grand Palais, as part of Monumenta (2011) and Orbit (2012) at the Queen Elizabeth Park London.

Anish Kapoor, 16 March 2019 – 18 August 2019, Pitzhanger Gallery

Tickets for Anish Kapoor will be on sale from February 2019.

Hear of Winter

Christmas is coming and Sally can't sleep – it's far too hot! The weather has gone topsy-turvy. No-one can remember the last time it snowed, or even rained, and her father can't sell any of his umbrellas. To help her sleep Dad reads her a story about the last snowflake.

That night Sally has a dream that changes everything – a mysterious silver spark transforms her bedroom into a glistening, white field where she meets the glowing heart of Winter.

Watermans welcomes back Lyngo Theatre, who brought you the playfully comic Snow Play in 2016. Heart of Winter is their magical new musical show which warmly celebrates family, friendship and the good fortune of finding the winter we really need and want…with the precious festive offering of lots of fluffy snow!

Find your joyful heart of winter at Watermans this Christmas!
