Show at University of Surrey

Pauline and Howard took part in an exhibition at the Lewis Elton Gallery, University of Surrey 2 -26 September 2013 entitled GAP NOW - Guildford Art Perspective Remembered.
This was a re-union of some of a group of artists who, from 1992 - 2001 campaigned to bring up to date general attitudes to visual art in Guildford. They ran exhibitions, artists' talks, created publications and issued newsletters. The group involved other, invited artists in these projects with a view to raising consciousness of these developments in art throughout the twentieth century.

Pauline Farrington is continuing to work in clay. The image is of the first phase of 'Another Lovely Day', a piece inspired by everyday occurrences at our home in Bognor Regis.
It has developed into several, free-standing sections. She hopes they will all now fit into the kiln.


September 2012
Howard Romp has been working on two main themes lately:

SLEEPING BY THE TELEVISION. The TV becomes an equivalent to the home fire, where we sat letting the flickering flames warm our imaginations. We are comfortable lying in front of it; we are lulled into sleep, no matter what strong, heart-rending horrors it flickers past us. It has become the food for our subconscious. Might it be poisoning our desire?
