ONE TWO FIVE Relocates to the Heart of BathPosted by Jo on Monday 16th November 2015
Carole Waller and Gary Wood have reopened their contemporary ONE TWO FIVE Gallery steps from the famous Abbey on the charming, cobbled square of Abbey Green. ONE TWO FIVE Gallery was previously located on the outskirts of Bath.
Carole’s one-of-a-kind painted fabrics have formed the basis of her label ‘I’m No Walking Canvas’ – timeless, ageless easy-to-wear clothes and scarves previously seen in Liberty, Harvey Nichols and Bergdorf Goodman. Individual works of art; each piece is as unique as the person who wears them.
“I believe that people want to have a personal connection to their clothes, their art, the things that inspire them,” explains Carole. “ People want to be able to express their creativity and individuality and my clothes let them. It’s alchemy between the garment and the wearer, and because each piece is completely unique, you won’t see someone else in the same dress as you!”
Carole also creates free-hanging paintings on unstretched fabrics, as well as glass panels, which incorporate her fabric paintings. The glass panels can be used as freestanding artworks or integrated into architecture, landscape or furniture. Bespoke commissions are always welcome.
Ceramic artist Gary Wood makes pots for food and drink, wall pieces and sculpture – all in subtle painted stoneware and porcelain. Gary’s work is vigorous, contemplative and distinctive. His pieces include drinking vessels, serving bowls, and sculptural artworks. Gary has exhibited in Europe, America and Japan.
“We’re excited about our new space in the centre of Bath,” said Gary. “The gallery is larger and more open and allows us to also feature guest artists alongside our own new work.” Current guest artist Annie Beardsley creates stunning, colourful, printed aluminium necklaces, cuffs and earrings.
ONE TWO FIVE Gallery’s forthcoming Christmas Exhibition will explore the theme ‘Fire and Ice’ and include pieces from jewellery artists Annie Beardsley, Jenny Turtill, Michelle Keeling and Emmeline Hastings, as well as new works from Carole and Gary. The ONE TWO FIVE Gallery Christmas Exhibition runs November 20th to December 24th. A special opening night party is planned for Thursday, November 19th at 7pm.
ONE TWO FIVE Gallery can be found at 4 Abbey Green in Bath and is open 11am - 5pm Wednesday to Sunday. All other times by appointment.
