I hope you are all doing well. It’s great to be open again and to see some of you back in the gallery and visiting Cedar Farm once more. Thank you for all your best wishes since reopening, it’s lovely to see familiar faces and thank you to everyone who has recently purchased a piece of artwork, your business is greatly appreciated by myself and the artists.
The Jacqueline Stanhope Equine Exhibition continues until the Sunday 30th May, we have a number of signed limited edition prints from £195 and original oil paintings from £1,450 available for sale and on display between the gallery and the exhibition walls of main atrium at Cedar Farm.
I am delighted to share latest news and new sculpture works from Sandie Henderson. She has recently exhibited the sculpture Etrusco 3rd edition at the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition which was held last month at the Mall Galleries in London; another success to add to the long list for Sandie!
Sandie has been busy in her studio creating a new piece called “Super Star”, a one-off wire sculpture which elegantly stands on a Cumbrian slate base, sourced by Sandie from Saddleback Slate at Threlkeld Quarry in Cumbria, located close to where Sandie grew up as a child. Using the very best materials, sourced with care and a connection to the sculpture core to her approach.
We have a number of Sandie’s sculptures for sale at Carnes Fine Art, including ‘Cavallo’ a striking foundry bronze piece previously selected for Bristol’s prestigious ‘Royal West Academy 159th Autumn Exhibition’ in 2011, and was greatly admired by HRH Princess Michael of Kent at the Mall Galleries ‘Society of Women Artists 151st Annual Exhibition’ in 2012.
Horses have played a major role in Sandie’s life since childhood and much of her adult life has been spent working professionally in the equine industry as a riding instructor, horse breeder, trainer and judge. In her sculpture and printmaking it is natural that horses should remain a recurring theme.
Sandie explains: “My work involves research into Ancient Art to explore a contemporary interpretation of the Horse. Through sculpture, drawing and printmaking I aim to capture the inherent characteristics of the horse, its essential power and dynamic energy whilst in motion and an elemental spirit of the wild that connects my horses to the landscape of their environment. Close observation and study of equine physiology and ethology are important aspects of my art practice.”
Sandie’s work has been exhibited widely both in this country and abroad, and is held in various public and private collections.
