The Lightbox gallery and museum is pleased to present ‘Café Gallery’, a display of work by local and regional artists. Changing monthly, the ‘Café Gallery’ features established artists, all noted for their quality of work. ‘Café Gallery’ strives to offer an exciting mix of paintings, original limited edition prints, textile and mixed media work.
All works on display are available to purchase from The Lightbox Gift Shop, where there is also a large selection of unframed work by the artists.
The current Café Gallery features the stunning textiles of Kate Buchanan:
Kate Buchanan is a textile artist who works in mixed media. She lives in Harpenden with her husband and two children. As a child herself and then with her own children, she has spent many of her holidays in the beautiful countryside, combing the beaches and walking the coast. Her work has been greatly inspired by the natural sunlight, the rugged beaches, and at home her delightful hens.
Kate’s main passion is for her small but beautifully formed textile pictures which demonstrate well her love of textiles and colour. These range from beaches and seascapes to rolling landscapes and her feathered friends. Kate not only makes and sells her own custom designs to a wide range of clients, but hosts workshops for other local creatives, to inspire and teach her techniques, exchange ideas and share life. Kate’s work often reflects a contemplative thought, using carefully chosen words to add meaning and depth to each piece.
Kate Buchanan’s work will be on display in The Lightbox Café from 14 April – 24 May 2015, all works on show will be available to buy.
A wider selection of work by Kate and other artists are available for purchase in the Shop’s browser.
