A Mixed Media Show 2021
This is the first time the family trio of artists have exhibited their diverse range of work together. Veterans of national and international exhibitions and commissions, Helyne, mixed media and textile artist, and Trevor Jennings, metal sculptor, will feature work spanning from the RCA in the 80’s to recently completed pieces. Their daughter Elise, creating work from recycled materials and with a love of textiles, will feature her vibrant range of jewellery and multi coloured felt vessels.
Helyne uses mixed media on paper and fabric combined with recycled thread, freehand machine embroidery, gilding and embossing techniques creating tiny earrings to large scale commissioned wall pieces and liturgical work such as the High Altar Cloth at Dorchester Abbey.
Ex Torrington, Bideford Art College and Royal College of Art student Trevor Jennings has been making works in metal most of his life, undertaking exhibitions and commissions abroad and at home. This show features recent small sculptures as well as examples of past work.
Elise Jennings has carved a niche in making jewellery from recycled materials. Using tin and copper she creates vibrant fun earrings that have quickly been accepted in shops and galleries nationwide. With a love for fabric and textiles Elise has also evolved a range of felt vessels using multicoloured merino wool to add to her eclectic style.
