Welcome!  blue-ginger has become a showcase for many talented local artists and craftspeople as well as some of the best of British talent and carefully sourced fairly traded crafts from far away.   The gallery, located in the grounds of a C15th timber framed Herefordshire farmhouse, has a diversity of quality goods on display. Within the main gallery there is also a coffee shop serving light lunches, delicious homemade cakes, and fair-trade tea and coffee.

 

In addition to the wide ranging and versatile selection of art and craft in the main gallery, you’ll also find handmade contemporary silver jewellery by Carol of Silverfish Designs in the Little Studio, mi-frame picture framing and limited edition prints and images, and The Summer House offers a showcase for a wide range of local artists and craftspeople to demonstrate and display their work. Throughout the year there are special exhibitions, suppers and events at the gallery.

 

Hopefully you will enjoy a flavour of blue-ginger as you explore the web site, and that you will be able to visit the gallery yourself and enjoy the friendly, welcoming atmosphere and perhaps taste our delicious homemade savoury muffins!.

FEATURED ARTISTS

JACKIE MORRIS

Jackie Morris is an artist and writer. She is well known for her stunning watercolour artworks and loves to walk near her home by the sea, watching and dreaming of bears and whales.

Over a seven year period she worked for The New Statesman, New Socialist, Independent, Guardian and Radio Times. She also designed cards and calendars for Greenpeace and Amnesty International and fell into children’s books by accident.

Jackie moved to Wales just before starting her first children’s book, Jo’s Storm, by Caroline Pitcher. She has illustrated many books over the years and has successfully authored a growing number herself. She says enjoys the company of animals to people but can be quite sociable on occasion.

She still lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales and works from her home studio.

ANNABELLE OPPENHEIMER

Annabelle makes intaglio (etching, drypint and collagraph) and relief prints (lino and woodcut) which she develops from drawings, paintings and different ideas, collections and notes in her sketchbooks. Her subject matter is almost always natural form, be it landscape, trees or plant life. The steps involved in printmaking make it a very absorbing process with that time between idea and outcome holding ongoing surprises.  Sometimes she makes a print from more than one plate, for example combining collagraph and drypoint.

JEMIMA JAMESON

Jemima Jameson studied illustration & design at Northbrook College, Horsham in West Sussex. She now lives in the Welsh Marches, where the rolling hills, farmland and woods inspire her work. Underlying influences are the “Art & Craft Movement” and medieval illuminated manuscripts.
