Trac Quarrwinterexhibposter HiresThe Ryde Art Collective (TRAC) is enjoying a double celebration as not only are the group returning to Quarr Abbey for their latest exhibition, but 4 of the newest members will get their first opportunity to exhibit in a group show.

Melissa Hoo-Kemp joined before lockdown so has had to wait for a long time. The other 3 have joined more recently – Babs Gowan, Richard May and Kathy Williams.

Babs works with collage and ceramics and teaches pottery at Jubilee Stores. Richard May was a teacher for 30 years but has now stepped away and returned to his first passion for art, painting almost every day. Kathy graduated from the Royal College of Art and is a qualified teacher and art education expert. She’s currently engaged with setting up new studios and exhibition space at the Riboleau Centre in Ryde.

Together they join the more established members of TRAC, all producing new work in a range of media including textiles, ceramics, wood, paint and mixed media.

The exhibition is being held between 25th-30th November at Quarr Abbey, near Ryde. Entry is free and the doors are open daily from 10:30-16:00.

The painting of Pig Leg Lane doesn’t appear to show the flasher caught there last year, perhaps a little artistic licence is forgiven if shown in the Abbey!

I found it a little difficult to see the Pigs leg, or anything I could identify to be honest.

I am sure we need to go and see such at the correct distance to be able to judge fairly.

Have some old pears for the pigs there anyway, so not a wasted trip whatever.
