Exhibition: Mike & Marian Cogswell & Vaughan Udall - 19 August to 1 September 2019

When: 19 August - 1 September 2019

Where: Carlton Gallery - 36 Main Rd, Katikati

Presented by: Carlton Gallery

Husband and wife Coromandel artists Mike and Marian Cogswell are joined by Vaughan Udall for an exhibition showing from 19th August until 1st September.

For many years Marian has been interested in fabric with its vibrant colours, many textures and designs. Lately she has reinterpreted this interest to clay. For this exhibition her interest is colour.

Mike has been a ceramic artist since the late 80's. He specialises in ceramic lustres; painting thin layers of heavy metals (gold, platinum, etc.) onto his ceramic work. This exhibition is a continuation of that journey. Now, Mike is particularly interested in the depth of pattern he can achieve by layering these heavy metals.

Vaughan has a kauri tree at the entrance to his studio nestled in the native bush. It is here that he gets his inspiration working in acrylics, oils, pastels and print-making. The love of colour and movement is what he aims to convey in his work, working in a loose, contemporary style. Apart from creating his own art, Vaughan also runs workshops and can arrange them for small groups. His studio on the road into Coromandel Town is open most days, or by appointment.
