ISLAND artists Angela Sowden, Juliet Collins and Julia Bery are to exhibit an electic range of work at Quarr Abbey next month.

The Working up to the Wire exhibition will take place from December 3 to 8 between 10.30am and 4.30pm at the Abbey's gallery.

Strongly influenced and inspired by the landscapes and coast of the West Wight, Angela’s new offerings are a combination of familiar views and semi-abstract work exploring mood and atmosphere.

Alongside original artwork there will be limited edition prints, a selection of cards — both festive and non-festive — and small handmade ceramic gift items.

Juliet is an animal sculptor who works in textured stoneware clay to create stunningly lifelike pieces.

Though she has previously specialised in mostly African wildlife, she has been better known for her hares in recent years.

Her collection will include magnificent elephants, friendly hippos and beguiling polar bears.

Julia is also inspired by her natural surroundings: the tempestuous waves breaking over Freshwater Bay reflect her ‘wave’ range of silver bangles and rings.

She specialises in reticulation, a technique where the surface of the silver is melted and cooled to produce unique results.

Handmade earrings look like leaves, flowers or even starfish.
