Exhibiting on our Ground Floor:
Kate Evans and Susan Dodd have been friends for nearly 50 years, having met first at Leeds University. They’ve had several exhibitions together, including two at Heart.
Kate Evans paints in acrylic on fretworked wood, which is layered to give a 3D- effect to her paintings. It’s a technique which she has evolved herself. Her principal subjects are still life, particularly food and plants, and she also paints assorted animals and birds, and occasionally buildings.
Based in West Yorkshire, she has had exhibitions in Leeds, Halifax, Accrington and Hastings. She is very happy to take commissions.
Susan Dodd is a Derbyshire-based artist who studied at Chesterfield College of Art and the University of Leeds in the late 1960s and early 70s.
Her surreal assemblages spring from a lifetime of collecting, influenced by a love of cabinets of curiosity, shrines and reliquaries, old dolls and Victorian insect collections.
Susan was joint winner of this year’s Harley Prize at the Harley Gallery, Welbeck, Nottinghamshire, and was highly commended at Dronfield Arts Festival.
Venues where she has exhibited include the White Box Gallery in Blackheath, London, the Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington and Bankfield Museum in Halifax.
