A month-long showcase celebrates ten years of friendship and artistic endeavour with a richly varied exhibition of portraits, figurative work, landscapes, and collaged images, silkscreen printmaking, and photography.

Su Collins, Lynne Humberstone and Andrea Robinson first met in October 2002 when they attended life classes at Wimbledon School of Art. Su lives in Surbiton and has been involved with The cornerHOUSE for more than ten years – she uses pencil and pastel to interpret the human form.

Like Su, Lynne works with live models, creating portraits in pencil, pastel and oils. Andrea works across a range of media to tell personal stories; her prints often incorporate text and found objects, or take family photographs as a starting point.

Andrea and Sara grew up not far from The cornerHOUSE and have known each other for many years. Sara uses traditional and digital photography processes to capture and communicate the beauty she sees in the world around her, on her travels and closer to home. Sara's black & white and colour landscapes and portraits complete this group show.
