Pottery for a good cause is the order of the day at an exhibition at Royston’s Curwens gallery planned for this month.

Potter Rosie Cowsley, who has a small studio in Royston, learned her skills from her mother – a pottery teacher – and after a long break from the craft returned to the wheel 12 years ago.

And she will be showcasing her work, along with some items made by her pottery teacher Joy at the exhibition.

All money raised by sales will go directly to the Bridges to Belarus charity, which helps children and their families affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

Along with the pottery, there will also be paintings by Rachel Fry and Paul Human.

Rachel trained in fine art in London and has previously exhibited large, bright, modern artwork.

For this exhibition she has returned to realistic paintings of ducks, geese, swans and seagulls, along with intricate works featuring a grapevine, snowdrops, clematis and mistletoe.

Rachel said: “We all get great pleasure from our work and hope we can inspire local people to explore their own talents.

“Art is a great hobby and can be very relaxing and sociable.”

The exhibition at 17 High Street will run from next Tuesday, May 10, until July 1 and there’s a chance to meet the artists from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday, May 18.
