Maureen Michaelson Gallery is hosting a three-day only mixed applied art show in the setting of a private home. Five superb artists are showing jewellery, ceramics, paper art, prints, miniatures & sculptural objects. With prices from £15 - £2000, it is a unique opportunity for visitors to find the perfect gift for themselves and friends in time for the festive season.
Three of the artists are new to the gallery. Hilary Arnold-Baker was trained by Sir Roger de Grey, former President of the Royal Academy, in unchanged Renaissance techniques such as gessoing and gilding to ‘create the heirlooms of the future’. Rhoda K Baker gained a MA from the Royal College of Art in knitting and weaving, and now makes laboriously difficult 3D paper structures. Jyl Millard’s new work in miniature scale fuses her skills of jewellery making, photographic techniques, installation art and psychotherapy in examining the psychodynamics within the family home. Many visitors will remember (and are still wearing) Jenny Turtill’s carved cuttlefish silver jewellery with unusual semi-precious stones from a show in 2004. She also exhibited some of her larger bronze pieces in one of our early garden shows. We have also previously exhibited Tina Vlassopulos’s handbuilt pots with gravity defying twists at the London Art Fair at the British Design Centre in the 1990s.
24 MAY – 8 JUNE 2014.
Our lushly planted hidden garden houses the smallest outdoor sculpture gallery in the UK. We are only open to the public for a few weekends each year - come and be inspired! We specialise in artworks for urban gardens and commission works from a wide range of artists for all types of outdoor spaces: from balconies and courtyards to large spaces.
Our aim is to show high quality artwork that actively complements and enhances gardens, without dominating the space. All our artists have a special affinity for nature, plants and gardening. While surrounding foliage enhances the artworks, they in turn provide elements of interest, humour or surprise.
Our 11th year features seven artists including two exciting talents new to our show. This year we are again open for the National Garden Scheme “Yellow Book” as well as the third annual Chelsea Fringe Festival. Click the link below for full details and opening hours.
18 May to 9 June 3013
We are pleased to announce details of our next Garden Art exhibition. Close to central London, our ‘hidden’ green oasis is a great surprise and delight to visitors and has been very popular over the years. This year's show features seven established artists who are making work especially for the show in ceramics, copper, glass, metal, resin & slate. All the works are made to suit the British climate. The exhibition demonstrates how suitably placed artworks can enhance any garden irrespective of size, by providing colour and focal points, especially in winter. Following the huge success of the inaugural festival last year, 2013 will see a much enlarged Chelsea Fringe.
During the period of Chelsea Fringe which runs from May 18 to June 9, 2013, the garden is open from 12 - 6 pm every Sat & Sun, and weekdays by appointment.
There will be an Artists Talk with Frances Doherty on Sunday 9 June at 3pm. Come prepared with umbrellas and warm clothes if the weather is bad!
Frances Doherty who calls herself ‘the ceramic gardener’, will be talking about the inspiration and techniques involved in making her extraordinary ‘insect eye view’ sculptures of flowers and seed pods. She will be describing the work background which led her to becoming a sculptor, and how her current work means travelling between England and France on an almost weekly basis. Frances is one of the seven artists taking part in the Hidden Garden Art Show as part of Chelsea Fringe. The informal talk will take place in the garden, and will last approximately 45 – 60 minutes. Visitors will be able to ask questions as well as view the garden and other works in the exhibition. These include works by Peter Clarke, Paul Cox, Jonathan Garratt, Helen Nock, Lisa Pettibone and Patricia Volk.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7435 0510 for full address and travel details.

2nd Annual Exhibition of Ceramics for the Garden featuring PLANTERS, WATER FEATURES, BIRD BATHS, SCULPTURE, SUNDIALS, & LANTERNS
Following the success of last year’s Ceramics for the Garden exhibition, contemporary art dealer Maureen Michaelson has decided to turn this into an annual event. Displayed in a London domestic garden, the show includes work made specifically for the garden, patio and conservatory. This includes planters, water features, birdbaths, sculpture, lanterns, seats etc. all of which are frost proof. The exhibition includes the work of some of the best artists working in this field from all over the UK, including Scotland, Staffordshire, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Hereford, Sussex, and Sheffield. All the work is individually hand made, and is therefore unlike the mass produced ware normally available from garden centres and garden shows. As well as being able to buy directly form the exhibition, the artists will be available for commission.
Among the exhibits are: Jonathan Garrett’ s acclaimed “Garden Punctuation” sculptures; Karin Hessenberg’s and Kate Mellors’ birdbaths, lanterns and sundials; Chris Lewis giant woodfired planters, Christine-Ann Richards’ waterfall garden, Mark de la Torre distinctive cacti planters and huge planters in cast iron and stainless steel.
Newcomers include Hannah Bennett’s boulder shaped garden seats and lights. Dan Kelly whose black pots were originally inspired by Japanese vases has for the first time adapted his work specifically for outdoor planting. Will Levi Marshall has also responded to the challenge of adapting his lusciously coloured work to make things specifically for the garden.
