Hadley Exhibitions at Elseys Gallery
Hadley Exhibitions presents...
Bury St Edmunds Art Trail for the Festival of Ideas 2015.
An exciting project involving up to forty Bury St Edmunds town retailers and businesses will partcipate in supporting and promoting the arts by exhibiting artist's work for sale in their shop windows. All the professional artists involved in the project are from the eastern region. The exhibited work will form part of an Art Trail for the newly formed Bury St Edmund's Festival of Ideas, to be held for four days during the 2015 Bury Arts Festival.
The coverage of the proposed Art Trail will encompass all parts of the town both new and old, with work being represented in independent outlets and chains by a diverse group of local professional artists.
The trail will be listed on a map showing both the business and its corresponding artist.
The artist's work will be sensitively placed to reflect the genre of the business and or the window that will showcase the piece. The art diciplines represented will be 3D (Sculpture,ceramics, painting, drawing,printmaking and fine art photography,printmaking and textile art. The artwork will be of the utmost quality and represent artist colleagues who have previously sucessfuly exhibited with Hadley Exhibitions.
*Hadley Exhibitions gratefully acknowledges partial funding and committment for the project from Councillor Mark Ereira on behalf of Suffolk County Council.

Hadley Exhibitions has been working hard on sewing unique designer headwear "Les Foulards". There is a good stock in a range of colours. I designed this look for folks who dont think that they are able to wear hats and who dont like to wear wool next to their skin. Le Foulard is warm but not itchy next to your head for the winter months, so this design is a perfect piece of bespoke design. The structure of these 100% cotton interlock garments is made by the trim which is sourced locally from Walter's traditional silkweavers at Great Cornard in Sudbury Suffolk. The trim creates a look and structure which sets these creations apart from the rest. You can make the Foulards glamourous or utilitarian by just a few tweaks...so versatile..you will love them!!
These gorgeous versatile cotton garments can be bought by contacting us click here
The Foulards are retailing at £15.00 each and come in a range of exciting colours to suit any outfit. Each Foulard is unique and handmade in my Mill Rd Studio. Long 2 x mtre scarves with silk trims also available at £25.00. The garments are pure cotton interlock and extremely warm having 8 layers of fabric to trap heat. The silk adds a touch of glamour. They are great for gifts (If you can bear to be parted...or get one for yourself!)
Colourways available: Admiral Red, Scarlet, Claret, Marl Grey,Purple, Black, Navy, Stone, White, Mocha, Bottle Green, Charcoal Grey, Teal, Olive, Oatmeal.
"Le Foulard" is also available at Elizabeth Gash, St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds.
100% soft cotton knit 8 x layers for warmth can be worn in a variety of styles on cooler days. * Colour way "Stone"
100% soft cotton knit 4xlayers for summer days.
Blog News continued....The 4PRINTmakers exhibition was a very successful selling show and the artists were very pleased at its popularity for their debut. The prints literally flew off the walls and we couldn't keep up with the demand for cards! Miranda Chapman, Sally MacIver, Anne Townshend and Georgie Finn will most definately be invited back next year and are artists whose careers are on an upward trajectory. (They are also four great women to work with).
So sadly I have decided not to have a Christmas exhibition this year at Elsey's, but am focussing instead on planning a great schedule for next year, with lots of artistic collaborations and connections planned for 2015. Hadley Exhibitions is available for all your visual art requirements and curating spaces is our speciality.
I was recently commissioned to paint a house portrait of one of the key historical houses in Bury St Edmunds Swan House in St Marys Square in the medieval grid area of Bury st Edmunds. The image below shows the work in progress. The work is in pen and ink and watercolour. The final image will follow....If you are interested in commissioning a house portrait please get in touch click here
