SAOS-logo-orange-250x102.jpgDear Friends,

Terry and I are parishioners and Terry is a potter.  He is the person who made the bowls containing the wafers when you come into church.

This year he is taking part in Surrey Artists’ Open Studios and will be exhibiting a range of his pottery.  This includes both smaller decorative pieces like his signature, pierced “tree-pots”, and larger pieces which he calls light-pods, orbs and lilies which are interesting pots in bright daylight, but in a dimmer environment thrown extraordinary patterns of light onto background surfaces.   He will also be showing some domestic ware.

Alongside will be paintings by our friend, Jacky Cowdrey, a member of the Dorking Group of Artists.   She works mainly in acrylics and is particularly interested in portraiture and the human form as well as doing some landscapes.

Most items will also be available for sale.

We will be providing tea, coffee and cake with donations in aid of the Royal Marsden Hospital.  Jacky’s husband is a patient there.

Dates:   The first three weekends in June, i.e. Sat.1st, Sun. 2nd, Sat. 8th*, Sun.9th, Sat. 15th, Sun.16th  11 am – 5 pm

Thursdays: 6th and 20th June  11am – 5 pm and 6-8.30 pm
