Fishink Reminders Mark Hearld, Angie Lewin, Emily Sutton, Mary Fedden and David Weidman

November 16, 2012

There is so much happening right now featuring my favourite artists that I must just tell you about a few events that are either going on now, or coming up, before the end of the year. Initially I want to say a late congratulation to Mark Hearld who was one of the award winners for the British Design Awards earlier this month presented by the Telegraph Magazine incollaboration with Elle Decoration. The award was for his Wallpaper design ‘Harvest Hare’ available from St Judes Gallery and ironically, I had chosen it to paper my living room a week before it won, I hope there will be some left !

There’s some lovely co-ordinated fabrics in the same design coming out soon to accompany the wallpaper. Both available from St Judes at the link above.

Mark is also featured in an exhibition “Birds and Beasts ” starting this saturday at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The exhibition opens at Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield on 17 November 2012 and runs until 17 February 2013.  You can meet Mark on Saturday at 2pm as he signs copies of new monograph Mark Hearld’s Work Book (priced £30) published by Merrell Publishers and showcasing Mark’s unstoppable creativity with delightful images and revealing insights into the techniques behind them. There will be hand painted pigeons, illustrations and prints galore, well worth a visit.

Secondly there is a Christmas Exhibition featuring the work of Angie Lewin, Emily Sutton and John Maltby at Godfrey and Watt in Harrogate. The exhibition will be open each day from Saturday 24th November until Sunday 2nd December 12 – 4pm and you can join Angie and Emily for Mince Pies and Mulled Wine there on Friday 23rd Nov between 7 – 9pm. Angie will be featuring some of her new watercolours and prints as seen below.

Emily will also have some new work to show and sell.

In December (4 Dec 2012 – 21 Dec 2012), London’s Portland Gallery has an exhibition organised as a tribute to Mary Fedden (1915-2012). Mary brought joy to so many through her art and this exhibition will celebrate her life and work. Over 60 paintings that span six decades of her career will be on view.

And last but not least …

American artist David Weidman has released two sets of Note cards.

They’re not yet available on the website but are available for sale at $9.95 per box (that’s for 10 cards and envelopes). Pictured below is a sampling of the cards available in both sets, which are entitled “Bird Calls” and “Flower Power”.

Please contact at to purchase and for more information.  How lovely that you can now send David’s stylish images everywhere. You can read more about David’s work from previous blogs here, and here. It has even been spotted recently on the hit series Mad Men, check out the two wall prints behind Peggy.

Also available to buy here. Hopefully that should give you a few new dates for your diaries lol.

    David Weidman is a favorite artist of mine too. I love the painting by Emily Sutton of a backyard garden and don’t see it on her website. Do you know if she is selling any prints
    of that one?

    What gorgeous work! I’ve been waiting for Mark Hearld’s Workbook to come out, and the publication date keeps getting pushed back, sigh. I’m unfamiliar with some of the other work, it’s always so nice to have new lovely things to look at.

    Really enjoyed the post with the mid-century book covers, too.

      Thanks Lisa, Yes Mark creates some amazing pieces and in so many different mediums too. I’m hoping to catch up with him today at the exhibition. Thanks for your lovely comments. Craig

    A number of years ago, I discovered David Weidman at one of the Los Angeles area flea markets where his nephew (I believe) had a booth and was selling David’s prints. I purchased several but now I wish I had bought more. I do own the book which I highly recommend. I’m definitely checking out the card collections!

      Thanks for your comments Vicky. I also bought a few of David’s beautiful prints last year from his daughter and am very pleased with them. The cards aren’t yet available in the UK so if you get to sample some do let me know your thoughts.
