'On The Seafront' by Janet Ledger

The next show at Red Rag Gallery in Stow features the art works of Janet Ledger who was born in 1934. She studied painting at the Northampton School of Art. Ledger's paintings have been compared with L S Lowry.

Janet's misty industrial landscapes and paintings of people have a marvelous feeling for atmosphere and colour combined with a strong sense of observation of life. Few subjects escape Ledger's gaze, whether it be on holiday or at work, children at play or at school, the washing on the line, a city skyline at night, or the corner shops and back streets populated by buses, dogs, lamp posts, the occasional drunk or shoppers with prams. Humour and pathos in her art works evokes another dimension, often providing the viewer a momentary smile. The show takes place 22 February

'Silk From Jaipur' by Sue Fitzgerald

is the latest artist to be showing with Red Rag Gallery in Stow is Sue Fitzgerald who studied at York and Sunderland Colleges of Art. Sue Fitzgerald paintings are real visual treasures displaying bold vibrant colours and a richness of texture. In terms of style, Sue Fitzgerald paintings have been compared to that of Mary Fedden. The conscious flattening of forms and emphasis on strong blocks of colour as a compositional device reinforces the connection between the two artists. In terms of texture, the reworking of the surface and the use of gold and silver leaf also reflect that Sue's paintings reflect the profound influence of artists such as Klimpt and the Nabis School.

The theory is that when art lovers are standing in front of a painting they are most positive mood for giving. Rather waiting until getting home donors to the scheme will be able to donate using their mobile phone whilst still at the art gallery.

The minimum donation is just three pounds. The National Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum are among those who've signed up for the scheme.
