EXHIBITIONS

During the year there is the opportunity to buy one of Shelley’s limited edition photographs. Visitors to her exhibitions often say that seeing the photographs in “real life” is even better than viewing them on a computer screen. Most of the photographs she prints are on archival quality, matt cotton rag which gives a depth and richness of colour that cannot really be appreciated on a monitor. Some of the photographs are printed with archival quality inks on aluminium dibond, which she considers to be the modern equivalent to those Dutch Masters who painted on copper.

She looks forward to welcoming you are her forthcoming shows!

2020
QUAY GALLERY, SNAPE MALTINGS

Yum! Feast for the Eyes information2020 has been a year of challenges and this exhibition will be  your only opportunity to see Shelley’s work on show. She’s delighted to be back in The Quay Gallery at Snape Maltings – quite the loveliest of galleries set alongside the River Alde. As a Fringe Event of The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival which, for this year due to COVID-19, will take the form of a weekend farmers’ market. For the past few years Yum! A Feast for the Eyes has been an incredibly popular event and she expects this year to be no different. She will be open from the afternoon of 24 September until the afternoon of 30 September and looks forward to welcoming you there!

DARSHAM NURSERIES AND CAFÉ

Shelley’s flower photographs will once again be gracing the walls of the fabulous Darsham Nurseries and Café. She feels this is the perfect surroundings for her naturally lit flower still lifes. Her work was last shown there in 2017 and she still has people remembering seeing her photographs while enjoying a superb lunch. What a terrific combination! The photographs will be on show in the café and shop from 28 August until 6 October.

ART FAIR EAST, ST ANDREWS HALL, NORWICH

I am returning to  Art Fair East in Norwich from 29 November to 1 December 2019 in the lovely St Andrews Hall. This is a gathering of artists and galleries from the East Anglian Region and beyond. It was great fun there last year and I was thrilled with the response to the visitors to the exhibition to my work. This is an important exhibition for the region and I’m delighted to be part of it


2018

2018 was a busy year!

THE ALDEBURGH GALLERY

Shelley is delighted to be back at The Aldeburgh Gallery with her Still Lifes. Entitled “Still Life and the Art of Slow Photography” it again features a mixture of traditional and modern takes on the genre of Still Life. Most of her photographs take many hours to compose and take but one of the exhibits took over two years to complete!

You will find a number of the exhibits in the Fine Art Photography  and the Flower Still Life sections of this web site. Don’t forget to also look at the image in the Slow Photography page which is an homage to the 17th century art of flower painting.

A joint exhibition with Hugh de Las Casas – our first in many years! His beautiful local Landscape photographs will be a stunning contrast to my Still Lifes. It’s a lovely gallery in the centre of Aldeburgh, below the Peter Piers Gallery and on the way through to the beach. We will be there from 2-8 August 2018.

 


 
GIFFORDS HALL VINEYARD

Giffords Hall tasting room with one of my 2018 exhibitions

I’m thrilled to have been invited to show my work in the tasting room at the lovely Giffords Hall Vineyard. So visitors can sample delicious wines while looking at my photographs of food and flowers. It’s a lovely venue and my photographs are looking very much at home there. My Still Lifes will be showing in the tasting room from 1 July to 5 August 2018.

2017
ALDEBURGH FOOD AND DRINK FESTIVAL

For the first time I’m exhibiting at The Quay Gallery during the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival as a Fringe Event. The exhibition, “Yum! A Feast for the Eyes” is open 22-28 September which includes the Festival on 23-24 September. The gallery is in an ideal position on the edge of the Snape Maltings complex, overlooking the River Alde. I am so looking forward to being part of it.

The exhibition will include new works as well as some old favourites. I look forward to meeting you there!

DARSHAM NURSERIES AND CAFÉ

In early 2017 I was excited to be asked by David Keleel to create an exhibition my flower photographs at the lovely Darsham Nurseries and Café.

Mixing some existing photographs with newly created works, they look very much at home in the shop and café. As always, I use natural light to enhance the beauty of the blooms and photograph them in two very distinct styles. One is firmly rooted in the Dutch masters, while the other offers a simpler, more modern close up view of the flowers.

Running from 6 July to 1 August it is a new excursion for me and I’m thrilled with the result!

2016

Exhibition private view invite

In 2016 I was delighted to be back at The Aldeburgh Gallery with my exhibition of Still Lifes. Entitled “Still Life and the Art of Slow Photography” it featured a mixture of traditional and modern takes on the genre of Still Life. Most of my photographs take many hours to compose and take but one of the exhibits took over 15 months to complete!

Nature’s colours and textures are revealed as the focal point of my images. Drawing influences from the Dutch masters, re-interpretations and re-inventions of this style of work were evident. At the opposite end of the scale I showed, for the first time, a range of abstract images too. Running from 19 to 25 May 2016 it was a hugely successful show with many photographs travelling the world.

You will find a number of the exhibits in the Fine Art Photography section of this web site. Don’t forget to also look at the image in the Slow Photography page which is an homage to the 17th century art of flower painting.
