Exhibition at the Dark Horse Restaurant, Stowlangtoft

Adrian Rumbles and SB Fleming will be exhibiting as part of Art about Town, a Suffolk Open Studios initiative to get more art into the community, throughout May and June in the Dark Horse Restaurant, Stowlangloft. 

The restaurant, owned by Cathy and Paul, formerly of the Hare in Long Melford, is set in the stable block of a beautiful country estate. The exhibition is hung against old wooden panelling in the dining room, and amongst other items in the old horse stalls which have been converted into a cosy bar area. The historical and interesting location is a lovely place to hang pictures! 

About the artists:


Adrian Rumbles whose work you can see at: www.thurlowgallery.co.uk  began his career in engineering before taking a two year foundation course at Ipswich Art College as a mature student. Now he spends every bit of his spare time devoted to art. Adrian specialised in sculpture at college, both large and small, using found objects and mostly working with welded steel.  Now a full-time artist, Adrian focuses more on painting and mixed media, going outside to paint from life as often as he can. Adrian is inspired by the local landscape especially disused sand and gravel pits near his home. 

Adrian’s studio will be open all the weekends throughout June as part of Suffolk Open Studios. He holds small friendly acrylic painting and mixed media workshops in his studio.   


SB Fleming  (Sarah Brown Fleming) works mainly in oils and ink drawing and subjects include people, interiors and still life. She is interested in form and composition and the play of light and colour and how if affects mood. Sarah will be opening her studio for the first two weekends in June.
