The Gallery Trail is open 12-5pm from 20 to 30 August.

We are open by appointment outside of these times, do contact if you would like to do this.

We are venue number 11 on the Gallery Trail Map, see below, we are inside the gates of Ford Road Cemetery, just behind the lodge house. If walking the east way to get to us is to take the A27 underpass from The Slipe at the end of Tarrant, then cross Ford Road at the cemetery, opposite where the river Arun foot path joins the road.

Please note that some of the paths in the cemetery have uneven surfaces, so take care!

Kate Boucher

Kate Boucher obtained her MFA from West Dean in 2016 and has not looked back since then.

She now regularly teaches at West Dean College and exhibits throughout the UK.

As well as being exhibiting this year with Zimmer Stewart Gallery, Kate Boucher's work will be exhibited at Petersfield Museum and Gallery from 21 September to 26 November 2022, with Alison Crowther in 'Traces of the Landscape'.

in the past Kate Boucher's work has been exhibited with that of David Nash RA, Alice Kettle and Tai Shan Schierenberg and is held in the collection of The Edward James Foundation, alongside works by Leanora Carrington, Salvador Dali and René Magritte.

Boucher’s evocative charcoal and pastel works are created in response to landscapes that are in some way, transitional. These landscapes are recorded in the liminal states of twilight and daybreak, where the separation seems thinner between the real, the sensed and the remembered.

Tom Farthing

Inspired by artists such as Alex Katz, Tom Farthing re-imagines figurative painting in a contemporary context. Farthing's subjects are concerned with memory and presenting familiar scenes that we can all relate to, evoking a specific and personal response from the viewer based on their own experience.

Tom Farthing has just finished taking part in the Turps Banana Studio Programme. This provides a dynamic structure of: mentoring; peer-led learning; stimulating conversation and debate, through discourse and practice.

His current output 'Fairground Pop' is a series of bright, pop art inspired paintings of familiar scenes at a fairground. On viewing these works we are immediately transported to our own memories and can even hear the load pop or organ music that always accompanies such visits. We exhibited some of the larger works from this series at the London Art Fair 2022.

Tom Farthing says "My work is engaged with painting the past at the same time as imagining a way forward for painting amongst the fast paced digital image saturated contemporary world".

Holly Frean

Holly Frean is an award-winning artist whose practice incorporates a range of mediums, from oil paintings on canvas to printmaking. Her imagination and versatility have recently led to coveted textile, ceramic and wallpaper collaborations with Burberry, Paul Smith and US clothing and retail brand Anthropologie.

See our Blog post: In Discussion with Holly Frean, where we look back at her varied career and work to date.

Holly Frean first exhibited with Zimmer Stewart Gallery in 2006 and has since exhibited extensively in the UK, America and Europe.

In May 2022 Zimmer Stewart Gallery collaborated with The Kennels at Goodwood on 'DOG', an exhibition of 18 paintings inspired by the rich canine heritage at Goodwood and two coincide with 'Goodwoof'. This was a successful exhibition and the Duke of Richmond and Gordon purchased twelve works for The Kennels contemporary art collection.

Having developed a unique and technically accomplished style over the past decade, Holly Frean has work in many private, public and corporate collections. She has been commissioned by the Duchess of Northumberland, designer Betty Jackson CBE, Paul Smith CBE, Kit Kemp MBE, Alan Duncan MP, comedians Russell Howard, Ricky Gervais and Lee Evans, actor Russell Tovey, clothing retailer Johnnie Boden and Lord Mervyn of Abersoch.

Holly Frean has been the recipient of numerous accolades including the 2012 National Open Art Competition Painting Prize awarded by Grayson Perry (2012). She has had work selected for ING Discerning Eye (2012, 2015 & 2016) and regularly shows at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
