Exhibitions for 2013
Last year was a very busy year. Anne had work on show at a large number of fine art fairs and festivals as well as a major solo London exhibition and guest appearances at conventions and events. It was an exceedingly hectic year and as such we were not able to do as much at the Anne Sudworth Art Gallery, so this year Anne has decided to concentrate a lot more on the gallery. There will be three main exhibitions of Anne's work at the gallery, starting with a large show in February, then a collection of her 'Tiny Dreams' in September and our usual Christmas show in December. We shall also be arranging a number of other events to be confirmed. The gallery is only open by appointment with James Brook. More details on the 'Exhibitions' page.
Nicolas Cage on Anne Sudworth's Art.
Academy Award winning actor, Nicolas Cage, has written a particularly beautiful and personal piece about Anne's work. His words have captured her work so perfectly - a wonderful and moving description which has truly hit a chord. He wrote
"Anne Sudworth's art awakens the inner glow I felt as a child when I beheld a tree for the first time under moonlight. She recalls in me a soft, light green illumination that restores my imagination; gives me strength in my adult life, and never stops burning no matter how dark the night gets. Like Graves' "White Goddess" her paintings are poetic, magical gifts direct from the source." Nicolas Cage.
Anne's forthcoming London Exhibition will be called "Out of the Light". A large number of works will be on show, including her most recent works. The show will run from the 16th October to the 20th October at the SW1 Gallery, 12 Cardinal Walk, Roof Garden Level, Cardinal Place, London SW1E 5JE

Anne has been invited to have an exhibition at Strawberry Hill House in London, home of Horace Walpole who wrote the first Gothic novel, "Castle of Otranto". The show will run from the 23rd of March till the 18th of May.
Strawberry Hill House is Britain's finest example of Georgian Gothic Revival architecture and interior decoration. It began life in 1698 as a modest house, built by the coachmen of the Earl of Bradford. It was transformed into 'a little Gothic castle' by Horace Walpole, man of letters and the son of England's first Prime Minister. Between 1747 and 1792 Walpole doubled its size, creating Gothic rooms and adding towers and battlements in fulfilment of his dream. Further additions were made by the Countess Waldegrave in the 19th Century.
The exhibition has been arranged to mark the opening of the house in March and a number of other events are being planned to coincide with the exhibition including an open evening and book signing on Sunday the 4th of May from 5pm till 8pm. For more information please email info@AnneSudworth.co.uk
