A traveller-artist – the deserts and mountains of Libya in the past and in this show the semi-desert of North West Namibia – Brook’s work consists of carefully sequenced and immersive films plus photographs and work on paper. Intense light, shadow and structure are expressed in what can only be described as sculptural film. Down the road in an equally remote location, at Taddington Manor, near Cutsdean, there is something very different again, Architectural Heritage. No exhibitions as such, just ongoing collections of a quite extraordinary range of garden sculpture and ornament – everything from fountains to bird-baths, full-scale figure pieces to obelisks and fire surrounds – all made by modern master craftsmen in everything from stone and marble to lead, copper and bronze. The company has been here for 40 years now and it just gets bigger and better all the time – a real treasure trove! South-west past Cheltenham in the deep wooded valley at Chalford, in one of the converted mills that once studded this area, is the long-established Gallery Pangolin. Originally just Just up the road from Stow, at Moreton-in-Marsh, is another long-standing Cotswold gallerist, John Davies (he started out in Stow in the 70s), whose spacious premises in an ex-dairy always allow for a really comprehensive display of an artist’s work. This month he is showing Richard Thorn, a Devon-born landscape artist who has recently returned to live and work in his native county. As a way of celebrating almost, he has spent the last year painting the River Teign from source to sea, and the show, hung in that order, provides a wonderfully strong and vivid picture of this richly varied landscape, from rolling uplands to steep wooded banks. Working in watercolour and water-based acrylic, Thorn’s superb technique always conveys a subtle sense of the changing light and colour of the passing seasons. Past the Cotwold ‘classic’ of Broadway, is the tiny hamlet of Little Buckland and the eponymous Little Buckland Gallery , where the enterprising Arabella Kiszely runs a beautiful gallery in a converted barn. It might seem buried in the depths of rural England but she shows a wide range of national and international artists alongside excellent, more locally-based artists. The April show, entitled ‘Made. Unmade’, of film-maker Julie Brook, currently one of art TRAIL APRIL 2015GALLERIES COTSWOLDS C5 M arcus James ‘Illusionado’ at Gallery Pangolin
