Ruth Bourne’s photo canvases at The Button Tree Cafe

Visitors of The Button Tree café in High Street may see a new exhibition this month.  Seven photo canvases by Ruth Bourne are on display during September. Ruth have made a selection of her landscapes and architecture photographs. Her subtle and melancholic landscapes are ‘Misty Morning’ near Upton Warren, ‘Out of the Mist’ in San Francisco, ‘Waddensee Walkers’ in Germany, and an interesting double exposed photograph ‘Wood Between the Worlds’ take at Upton Warren. Parisian triptych called ‘Fractured Times’ is more dramatic, with a strong contrast of light and shade, with a gentle touch of sky-blue.

Contemporary embroidery by Tamara Jelaca

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFrom 4th August till 1st September The Button Tree café features contemporary embroideries by Tamara Jelaca.  The café’s visitors have a chance to see eight works that Tamara choose to show as a review of her work from 2008 until 2011.

Tamara’s embroideries are textile illustrations of her thoughts, feelings and daily life. Tamara says, “I always look for an inspiration around me. It can be a song, a book, a person or particular situation, even TV programme or newspaper article. I am also very introspective person and, therefore, a great source for the inspiration.”

All works are made in techniques of free hand embroidery, acrylic and textile painting, and tea-dying.
