A nostalgic look back at the 50s and 60s, where SNADS will endeavour to recapture the mood of those decades...
Our light and airy Bibbern Gallery Café/Bar is a great place to meet friends, have informal meetings or just take a break from the shopping.

We also offer a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Sarah Loves textures and layers up tissue paper, card, pastes, gesso, cotton, wire, string or nails in order to develop an intriguing surface for all of her work.
With her run down harbour paintings, her aim is to capture the feeling of old crumbling down buildings, with their cracks and crevasses and their crumbling plaster. Often there will be a true fishing or smuggling story taken from the newspaper clippings of the 1800s woven into her paintings, capturing the lives of the people who lived in those times.
Diane originally trained as a Graphic Designer and also had her own interior design and decorating business.
It is only recently that she has been inspired and encouraged to produce her own art work. She has developed a style of simplifying an image and uses the smooth, creaminess of gouache paint to create flat, poster like pieces often reminiscent of a screen print.
