‘Pop Art’  by James Tebutt

Finished ( available to view by appointment)

Large Canvas Work originals.

The imagery used is drawn from a wide variety of sources, including magazines, the internet, photographs, news media, and art historical.  This reflects not only my own wide ranging interests but also the wide range of visual stimulus in the world around me.  It is these images, their relationship with each other and their relationship with the more abstract, expressionist, paint marks that interests me.

the image -developing film, processing images in the dark room and really understanding how to get a good shot on a manual camera.

I have had an excursion into oil painting on a daily basis and in a very small format; 10cm by 7cm. I’ve found that these still take time to identify a composition that will work (maybe an hour or two) plus time to actually paint it, usually two to three hours. It also seems to be important to pre-mix colours and keep them clean – no room for muddy colour on such a small scale painting.

About Eric Yates

I studied Fine Art in London for a number of years, then Graphic Design at Norwich School of Art in the 1980’s. I spent time combining my Graphic design skills with Fine Art, I feel I have succeeded with this current body of acrylic paintings. This body of ongoing work has been exhibited in galleries across the UK. The inspiration and colours can come from a combination of a love of pop art, Kodachrome film, science, nature and music.

I currently live and paint in my house and studio, Moulton, Northamptonshire.

All acrylic paintings are on canvas  19.5” x 19.5” x 1.5” Commissions Taken

Malcolm Pollard

video Malcolm

Now showing in the gallery Oct~Dec 2017

Malcolm Pollard was Head of Sculpture at Northampton School of Art and worked tirelessly to proclaim ‘the place of Art in our society.’ Sadly his untimely death robbed us of the opportunity for him to display the full range of his work that he created over many decades. In 2000 Malcolm Pollard wrote: “I prefer to explore the edges of established disciplines to discover what lies between. Currently the margins between architecture and sculpture seem full of possibilities, as do the spaces between sculpture and gardening and poetry” His sculpture ranged from the playful and sometimes erotic to the mystical such as the ‘Risen Christ for St. Matthews Church Northampton alongside of Henry Moore’s Madonna and Child and work by Graham Sutherland. Although Malcolm did exhibit frequently when invited, he had decided some time ago “not to be a part of a system that regards art as property”

Peter Sayer  (Finished)

Press Release

Peter is an accomplished artist whose Art and Design career spans 55 years. He is a post war child brought up by the sea and the coast is a reoccurring theme in his work.Before dedicating him self to his painting, he enjoyed a successful career as an Architect / Interior Designer. And over the last 17 years he has been steadily building a body of work which he felt was of standard he was personally happy with. However, it has been the last 5-6 where he has really focused and devoted him self to painting full time. His tools of choice are pencil and watercolour on heavy duty paper. But he enjoys mixed media, especially oil, water and sand. But it he can quite often be found experimenting with anything to hand, scrubbing brushes, plastering trowels, sticks, anything that makes a mark and takes him out of his comfort zone.

When asked “What do you paint?”, the answer is usually, “What I can see.” Which is everything around him. His work is fairly rooted in the traditions of landscape, but is able to respond creatively to most things. Landscapes with lots of texture in the foreground is a preferred format. But is equally at home painting 3m canvases.

Charles Kitchen   FINISHED.

Painting landscapes in oils is my passion, using the Impressionists, Tonalists and others for inspiration, for example Corot and Seago.

The Northamptonshire countryside, British coastal areas and the South of France are locations I look to for subjects, aiming for atmosphere over realism. I love to explore trees and their relationship to the landscape in all seasons. I paint outdoors whenever possible, using watercolours, gouache or oils for sketches, sometimes in preparation for larger works back in the studio. I have recently extended my palette and begun to explore abstract painting again in order to continue to develop as a painter.

I have exhibited regularly and occasionally paint commissions. My work is held in private collections in the Netherlands, Ireland and the USA as well as in Britain.


3rd April-20th April

In the lead up to the Easter  2019 celebrations, the children from the Caring Kindergartens Nursery in Moulton Park, Northants have been very busy creating special eggs to exhibit at J Gallery in Moulton Village. Sue Strus, the Nursery Manager said “Since the arrival of Easter eggs in the shops, the children have shown lots of interest in eggs and where they come from. The children were fascinated to learn that eggs are not just food that is yummy in their tummy but that animals lay these with their babies inside. There has been much discussion on what animals lay eggs and how long baby animals sleep in there before they crack open. This has inspired some of the eggs designed by the children, along with the attractive packaging that is used with the chocolate eggs that the children have seen whilst out shopping with their families”.  How were these created?


Brian is one of the gallery’s major artists. His installations are put up at regular intervals and include his nationally recognized 3 Cubes & 2 Chairs. Several of his works are now in the public collection of  THE ARTS COUNCIL Southbank London

His background



Teresa Wells (Sculpture)

Teresa Wells MRBS creates emotive figurative sculptures in bronze, that celebrate man’s physical and emotional survival over adversity. Inspired by the question ‘How do Humans Behave”, she draws inspiration from the contours of athletes and dancers to emphasize a physical strength, placing them in precarious poses to stress fragility.

She employs an illustrative style that pertains to theatrical gesturing, with particular attention made in recreating detail in the face, hands and feet. This creates a powerful and spiritual force, creating reflection on ones own psyche. When combined with geometric architectural supports, in steel and stone, she shows a contemporary approach to bronze, lifting it off the plinth and making it appear less monumental and traditional.

‘Soul and Seasons ( joint exhibition) Miriam McClay

This exhibition is finished 2 available contact :-sue@jgallery.org.uk

2 Available

I work intuitively and playful experimentation is an essential element of creating my paintings. Each painting must be about testing out new ideas and techniques and never a repeat of the last; adding and scraping back paint through an infinite combination of options to achieve something quite new and distinct from the starting point. Colours, marks and movement change over time and so the paintings reflect that in their layering; a documentation of the conversation I have with them.

My current work is about emotion and exploring visual ways to express its complexity and dynamics.

about the artist

Miriam McClay

I trained at Falmouth School of Art and Design where I gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. A year later I achieved a Master’s Degree in Fine Art Printmaking from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. My PGCE at Middlesex University led me into a full-time teaching role. I have now been teaching for 23 years and although education faces many challenges, I consider myself lucky to be surrounded with creativity and colour every day. Alongside my position in education I have always kept up my own art practice.

About the artist:-

‘From an early age I was interested in art’

Growing up in Belgrade Serbia. I was  influenced by the native artists’ distinctive style of Native art. Moving from London in 2001 to Northamptonshire, I fell in love with the rural landscape surrounded by farming fields. I took up photography, which resulted in a successful career as a landscape photographer.

‘My passion for art has never left me’

Mostly self taught I had lessons with Roy Holding, practicing different media which led to exhibitions and success in selling my work. I work  in the mediums, acrylic, oil & pastel.

2 works in the gallery during April-May 2018

I am a contemporary acrylic painter of landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes.

I was born and brought up in London and moved to the West Country in the 1970s.  My initial source of inspiration came from the beauty of the magnificent South Devon coast.  I now live in South Northamptonshire and, as a member of a local “En plein air” art group, love to spend time painting in the local countryside.  I also make regular painting trips to South Devon to capture the unique Devonian beauty and light. My art is characterised by atmospheric paintings featuring strong compositions, with vibrant colours and bold contrasts.

You have to be brave to experience, let alone, view some of Mario’s work. It is often considered ‘too political’ and difficult to understand. Having worked at Birmingham University as Head of print making Mario is now head of department at Newcastle University Australia. He has worked for most of the well known broadsheet papers in the UK :- The Times/ Telegraph/Guardian etc. He has been regularly commissioned to produce reportage to run alongside international news items covering politics and world disasters. ‘The ritual’  is a thought provoking original artists signed proof on show and offered for sale framed, at the gallery now.( not the work opposite)

‘Jungle Book’

Each child chose a jungle animal to create as a mask and we looked at photos of the animals and their features, talking about what we needed to make for each animal such as skin patterns, horns, tusks, ears etc. The children created the masks using a face shaped mould which they added newspaper and modroc to in order to create the different facial features of their animal. The children then decorated the masks, creating half as a realistic representation of their chosen animal and paying attention to the colours and patterns of the animals in the photos. The children created the other half as their own interpretation of the animal, thinking about how the animals would look if they could design them. The children chose vibrant colours and eccentric decorations which contrasted with the realistic halves

Simon Gidney March-April 2018


Simon utilises a variety of materials, oil, acrylic, water colour, paints, and plaster, glue, and talcum powder as foundation mixtures. He uses his own self prepared alchemic glaze, (Darcryventine), and often complex combinations of materials in mixed media.  He hand makes bespoke canvas frames for specific work. Other wise uses pre-stretched canvas, and whatever is available, be it wood, board, and paper.

Early inspiration included Salvador Dali and the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and has grown to include Kandinsky, Majrowski, and his bucket full of his life’s experience, and includes Dali lama for inner inspiration, and subconscious expression. His audience is you those who are not afraid to be different and don’t blame others for their failings.
