Ideas that access underlying environmental and ecological concerns regarding our own planet’s welfare. She explores her fascination for the beauty and diversity of these incredible environments, through form, texture and colour. She aims to highlight not only the abstract qualities of these unknown worlds, but offer opportunity for reflection on their significance.
Kathleen’s Landscape collages, challenge our perspective, the representational leans towards abstraction. A sense of place filters through her work in her use of line, colour, form and texture. Her overall aim being to create a dialogue between - direct experience, inner feeling and memory.
Exhibition open Friday 5th April - Tuesday 25th June
A Collection of Local Artists: Mollie Lord, Paul Fortescue & Daniel Garland
Mollie Lord: Man's Unholy Intervention - Upper Gallery
"The idea is to create an atmosphere and impression of the link between man and nature. There is an environmental aspect to my paintings of the inherent link between man's primal nature and the planet. We are one individual unit.
My work comes from nature and a desire to preserve and honour it. There are also elements of psychotic states of mind, which come inevitably from my career, and knowledge of mental illness at it’s most disturbing and extreme. I have attempted to combine these two elements in my paintings and in my writings.
I do this because it defines me. It is what I believe to be inherent truth" - Mollie Lord
Mollie is a retired nurse/ therapist /artist and writer. She has lived in Hay since 1999. Sidney Nolen, Vincent Van Gogh and Cezanne inspire her art. Eugene Fisk taught her and encouraged her prior to his tragic death.

Paul Fortescue is trying to recreate what he saw and felt during 4 minutes of 2012. Using every shade of Acrylic paint to hand, and a single brush per canvas, he lets the pictures paint themselves over layers and layers of projection through this medium.
A ritual in disbelief o’ the lost art, You shall not enter my mind.
5 minutes to give, a trial.
Words no longer find themselves.

5th August - 25th September 2017
This exhibition by Hereford College of Arts student, Jan, will be running between July-September. Jan studied fine art after her retirement and this is her first exhibition in this area. Known for her mixed media and practise approach, there is a vast amount of work to be seen. After her sudden passing, the globe at hay are proud to be able to showcase her extraordinary talent, as it was a real dream for Jan to have her very own exhibition in Hay-On-Wye. All work is for sale. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for all enquiries.
Jan’s work explains the creation of significant form and its power to draw an emotional response. Taking inspiration from iconic structures found in the built environment, she used repeated lines and forms in 2D and 3D works that combine figuration and abstraction. Colour was an important element in her practice.
In memory of Jan Lewis Jones
'Life Class': Robin Scott
8th April 2017 - 8th July 2017
Private View Saturday 8th April, 8pm
Robin Scott attended Croydon Art School with fellow contemporaries Jamie Reid and Malcolm McClaren. All three migrated to the music business in the 70's, but the fine art connection remained.
Scott's early paintings were both abstract and figurative, exploring landscape as well as still life. His earliest work was never exhibited as he pursued a career in the music industry.
The 'Life Class' collection fuses a traditional view of the female form enhanced with digital software filters, the visual equivalent of digital processing in the generation of contemporary pop music.
This series of images became a frame for the musical narrative of a retrospective album released by Scotts independent label Yup! Records, to coincide with an exhibition at the London Ensign Gallery in 2003.
Limited edition giclée prints on paper are included from this period, together with some abstract work on canvas from the same era.
24th November 2016-24th March 2017

The globe at hay are proud to announce that it's next art exhibition features work by the residents of Winslow Court, a SENAD group centre based in Bromyard that provides education, care and community support for the most complex, vulnerable and hard to place young people and adults.

One of the most important traits of the human condition is the desire to communicate and the globe at hay and Winslow Court believe art is one of the means we use to achieve this. Thus, this exciting new exhibition will showcase all forms of artwork, by many different artists and showcasing many forms of artistic expression. All work is for sale and proceeds will go toward facilitatory art funding within Winslow Court itself.

Amy le Bailly/ Stacey Wilding/ Gary Benson
Opening Night Friday 8th July
Amy Le Bailly produces analog photographs on film, employing manual techniques using basic or “toy” cameras popular in years gone by. Gary Benson’s black and white images similarly play with traditional processing techniques to create strange and intimate snapshots.

3 March – 15 May 2016
Laurel Gallagher: Shadow of a Feral State
Private View 4 March, 6-8pm
Laurel Gallagher is a visual artist and educator whose practice explores the feral within modern life. Thoughts on isolation, freedom and security combined with the desire to connect with our instinctual past inform her collection of otherworldly characters.
The act of image making is as important to Laurel as the completed artwork; from an initial black background shadow forms emerge to be covered with ethereal washes and architectural structures, creating visual depth. Drips of free flowing paint break the continuity of the image inviting the viewer to consider both the physical qualities of paint as well as the illustrative forms it takes.
Working from her home in the shadow of the Peak District, surrounded by relics from an industrial era, Laurel develops projects that question our desire for domestic security by offering seductive visions of a feral state. www.feralstate.com
Tottie Aarvold: Torn
4 December 2015 – 28 February 2016
An artist and fine art photographer studying at Hereford College of Arts, Tottie Aarvold captures the abstract qualities of the world around us through paint or through a lens. Drawn to textures, layers, colour and line - to the unnoticed, the abandoned, the unusual and random in everyday life - Aarvold finds beauty in decay.
Aavold’s work is very personal and involves self-exploration. Working for many years as a Psychotherapist has led to an interest in the hidden and revealed, in what lies beneath.
‘Torn’ is a series of photographs revealing the effects of time and the power of nature and mankind on surfaces in everyday life. Aarvold sees these images as ‘found paintings’. She aims to create a story, an uncertainty and psychological confusion in her work. It is important that the image is as she sees it and that it isn’t highly manipulated in Photoshop. The camera is her eye; it captures what stands out to her in the world.
All of the works on show at the Globe at Hay are for sale. Please contact email@example.com for a price list and details.
