An Exhibition of Drawings, Paintings and Prints
23 November 2019 - 14 December 2019
Venue: The Exhibition
The Somerset artist, Robin Gray, met Preston artist Ceris Jones at the annual cavers conference, Hidden Earth, over twenty years ago. The two artists were both showing drawings and paintings of caves, cavers and cave exploration. Discovering that there were others interested in this unusual subject they became founder-members of ISSA, the International Society for Spelaeological Art.
Since then their reputations for work relating to caves and caving has spread to most parts of the world where cave exploration is carried out and they have become highly collected by cave enthusiasts.
It is exciting that this joint exhibition is to be held in the Wells & Mendip Museum, a museum set up by Herbert Balch, a pioneer British cave explorer. In addition to work relating to caving the two artists found that they both worked on subjects relating to mountains, diving, and their own local landscapes and both taught life drawing, so because of this shared common ground, their exhibition is titled Common Ground.
Here you will find new works relating to all their interests, in the form of drawings in graphite, ink and mixed media, paintings, artist’s prints and of course life drawings. A genuine feast for every eye!
