‘A World of our Own’ by Sam Groom
We are delighted to annouce our new exhibition ‘A World of Our Own’ by Bev Seth and Sam Groom from 15 October to 19 November 2022.
Opening evening: Friday 14 October 7:30-9:30pm, all welcome, hospitality provided.
Hidden stories and bold colour! Artists Bev Seth & Sam Groom use their experience of living in Sheffield to inspire their work.
Two artists collaborate and contrast their different approaches to the inspiration gained from the natural world; from stories rooted in folk lore and magical creatures to the colour, shapes and joy enjoyed via locally based walks and environs.
Sam Groom is primarily a printmaker but in this exhibition she has brought together a collection of printmaking, textiles, collage and ceramics all in her signature style of bold shapes and colours referencing the beauty of nature.
“I have produced a range of artworks onto saved items of sentimental value inherited from my family. This includes collaging onto old plates and woodblock printing and hand sewing onto remnants of saved and recycled fabric to produce colourful wall hangings.” Sam Groom
Clearly influenced by the colour and collages of Matisse, Sam Groom develops her ideas in different media to create a world of exotic flowers, fabulous birds, and large abstract compositions that explore and celebrate colour, shape, pattern and texture.
