Sister By Studio Ashby and The Dot Project are delighted to present a new body of work by Heath Wae, “Rapture; the Warmth of Honey”. The ‘Gallery In Residence’.

Heath Wae’s “Rapture; the Warmth of Honey” conjures visions that flutter between realms of dreams and reality, where the warmth of honey is not merely a sensory delight but a metaphysical voyage. Drawing inspiration for the earth itself, Wae works directly with pigments hand-sourced from alpine peaks to desert caves, weaving into each work a story of the lands itself, a story that spills and blossoms into myth.

Angelica Kauffman RA was one of the most celebrated artists of the 18th century. In this major exhibition, they trace her trajectory from child prodigy to one of Europe's most sought-after painters.

This exhibition covers Kauffman’s life and work: her rise to fame in London, her role as a founding member of the Royal Academy and her later career in Rome where her studio became a hub for the city’s cultural life.

Earthenware pots with sprinkling holes in the base were used from late medieval times till the 1700s, indoors and outdoors. The idea is simple. A pot with a thumb-size hole in the top is plunged into water. It fills up through the holes in the bottom. Put your thumb over the top and the water won't spray out, for the same reason you can't pour liquid out of a tiny hole in a can with no room for air to get in. Carry it to where you want it, remove your thumb and sprinkle the water. Learn to make one of your own sprinklers for fun use around the home or garden this spring!
