Foxlowe Gallery is delighted to be hosting our current exhibition Wild About Colour, which displays the works of Tony Wild and Kim Bramley. Both are eminent in their respective fields, sharing the common link of an exuberant use of colour.

Born in Burslem with a life closely associated with Burslem College of Art, a prime mover in getting this institution reinstated, Tony Wild’s associations range through Arthur Berry, Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Ivor Hitchen, to name but a few. He taught in Stoke inner city schools until 1972, then Staffordshire University until 1990, and was part time lecturer at Keele University, finally giving his time totally to his painting. His work can be seen in many national collections, including the British Arts Council.

Kim Bramley, through her chosen medium of glass, seems to have many parallels with Tony and his working methods.  Initially trained in Fashion and Textile Design, at St Martin’s School of Art, she ultimately set up her own business as a freelance textile designer in 1992.  In 1999 she retrained in new techniques in kiln formed glass, working for nine years with this process in her studio on the remote Isle of Skye before relocating to her Heart of England studio in Sandon Hall.

The Exhibition runs from Saturday 7th March-18th April 2015.
Gallery open Wed-Sat 10.00-4.00; Sun 11.00-4.00.
Free entry.
