Ipswich Interpretations, Freudian Sheep Artists, Suffolk
Kerseys Solicitors will host an art exhibition at its offices based on the theme of ‘Ipswich Interpretations’.
Thirteen professional artists will display their work, which features their impressions of landmarks in the town.
Kerseys managing partner and artist Anthony Wooding came up with the theme and The Freudian Sheep Artists have curated the exhibition.
Jenny George’s popular ‘The Wine Rack’ painting will feature, which is a quirky take on the now well-known local landmark. It will also be joined by her illustration of the now defunct Odeon Cinema – portrayed it as if it were in a ‘1930s heyday.’
Laura Beardsell-Moore, Michelle Bowden, Martin Carter, Amy Drayson, Peter Ellis, Carlos Fernandes, Jenny George, David Hardy, Peta Hillier, Emma Johnson, Borin van Loon, Eleanor May, Ian Moss, Tom Owens, Anne Plummer
Curator and artist Ian Moss said:
“We at The Sheep have asked our artists to use their usual unique styles to explore the subject. In most cases they will be providing art specially created for the exhibition. Notable exceptions will come from painters Jenny George and Amy Drayson, who have an existing collection of excellent Ipswich interpretations we’ve been able to cherry-pick from.”
Ian and his wife, Eleanor, used to run The Freudian Sheep until it closed its doors in St Helen Street. They have continued to host contemporary art work under The Freudian Sheep Artists. The couple are looking for an alternative venue to base themselves via a reciprocal arrangement – they display art that attracts visitors to the
host premises. In the meantime, they continue to enjoy a long association with Kerseys and will display ‘Ipswich Interpretations’ for six months from December. Ian said:
“We would be interested in hearing from any organisations which wish to attract visitors through art. It has proved a hit at Kerseys and we are grateful for their continued support.”
The exhibition will run from December 9, 2016, until June 8, 2017.
