EXHIBITIONS & NEWS

 

Last summer Clova's one-woman show of her still-life and interior paintings "Alluring Objects, Interior Worlds" ran for three months in the stunning Sessions Gallery at the Abingdon County Hall Museum in Oxfordshire.

"It was such a worthwhile show - full of interest and inspiration."
Janet Boulton  Artist and Writer

"Clova's mastery of colour harmonies is matched by the culturally diverse subjects that she chooses for her compositions: the blends of culture and colour are seamless and provide a wonderfully soothing viewing experience. It was a superb exhibition and was very well received".
Matt Stevens  Curator Abingdon County Hall Museum

This year Clova will be opening the music room and garden studio of her Oxford house in May (see below) as part of the Oxfordshire Artweeks Festival 2017 with an exhibition to include work from the Life Room, as well as some landscape, interiors and still life. Located in Jericho, her venue is in the centre of the area that comprises the Jericho and Walton Manor Trail. 

Also in May, Clova will be one of the judges with Sarah Simblet, Helen Cooper and Korky Paul for the 10th Anniversary Art Competition Young Art Oxford a county-wide competition open to school children in conjunction with Cancer Research UK. The exhibition is hosted by the Ashmolean Museum at the beginning of the month. 

During July and early August she will return to the Ruskin School of Art to run her 5 day course, Exploring the Exotic Still Life, for the second time and a new four day course, Deconstructing Cubism, as part of the summer school programme.

“Clova Stuart-Hamilton,
unswayed by trends,
paints what she sees.
Relishing intricacy and
profusion, she deploys
the myriad colour touches
that coalesce on her
canvas to create,
over and over again,
a triumphantly luminous
web of form”

Jane Dowling, Artist
