Artists in Residence at The Hive Cranbrook
Grierson Galleries, are now proudly working with the HiveHub in Cranbrook
Grierson Galleries started life in a beautiful listed building in Sevenoaks High Street where Annie and Grahame built up an excellent client and artist base. Now proudly working with the HiveHub in Cranbrook, where we live, we are thrilled to be able to bring our growing expertise to this vibrant new space, providing art and artists of hugely varying genres and to create events for the local community and further afield. Our artists come from all over the Weald and supporting local artists is one of our passions.
We also like to encourage young, upcoming talent, such as Max White, whom we ‘discovered’ at Sevenoaks School, when he was 17. Max is now 22 and his art is evolving, selling, is becoming very collectable and generally doing extremely well! We aim to bring art and opportunities to the public in a fun, flexible, friendly and totally professional way, working with the right business partners to make this a reality and to mutual benefit. We never sit still, we are now planning our 3rd Benenden Art Show, have huge plans for other Art Shows and events and are very open to ideas.
We have just launched our The Arts Directory to give added value to both clients and artists alike and plan to grow this hugely. So please enjoy the art, enjoy the ambience and fun of this great space, the HiveHub and do talk to us. We love to listen!
Artists at the HiveHub, Cranbrook
Beverley and Charlotte will have a permanent presence at the HiveHub. Other exhibitions will rotate on a six- to eight-week basis with a Private View for each new exhibition. Friends of Grierson Galleries and the HiveHub will receive e-invitations in advance.
Charlotte is inspired by the woodlands and orchards surrounding Yalding and recreates the fascinating textures and fee of tree bark in her designs. Charlotte works in silver, gold and bonze and her jewellery is simple and stylish with a contemporary twist. She exhibits at some of the top jewellery fairs in the South East/London and welcomes commissions including wedding rings.
Beverley brings together her artistic flair and a background in engineering to create fused glass art in both 2D and 3D formats. From her studio in Chatham, she designs collections for galleries, makes bespoke art for homes and work spaces, produces seasonal gift ranges and teaches the art of glass fusing. Beverley loves to push the boundaries of this fascinating medium. She explores processes that incorporate other artistic practices such as printing, sculpture and painting – but with glass of course!
