The work of Eric Gill is proving rather the flavour of the month in our local galleries. At the Creative Art Gallery, in Oxford Street, Woodstock, until Sunday, you can see a range of his woodblock engravings as well as new works by artists and sculptors inspired by the Gill tradition. These include Cardozo Kindersley Workshop, Emma Maiden, Tom Kemp, Bernard Johnson, Paul Mortimer and Tom Clarke. Prices range from £65 to £3,000.

From tomorrow, until December 14, a show at Dadbook Gallery, at Cuddington, near Thame, will feature more work by Gill, one of the most colourful figures in early 20th century art. It is the unequalled clarity of his line that makes his work so sought after today. Recently discovered original nude studies will also be on display. They are reproduced in Gill’s book First Nudes, which was published between 1938 and 1964.

To celebrate the gallery’s exhibition of Gill’s work, Dr. Richard Cork will give the first in a series of specialist lectures at the gallery on December 12, entitled Wild Thing, Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska and Gill. These are the three artists who revolutionised sculpture in Britain between 1910 and 1915.

Richard Cork, the internationally renowned art historian, critic, broadcaster and exhibition curator, is a past Turner Prize judge. He will be curating an exhibition about these three extraordinary men at the Royal Academy in October next year. Prices of the Gill originals start at £45 and tickets for Richard Cork’s talk, which are available from Dadbrook Gallery, cost £20.

Clico Kingsbury, the director of Dadbrook Gallery says: “Gill’s subject matter ranges from the deeply religious to the playfully erotic, with all sorts of delightful images between the two extremes. It is wonderful to be able to show work of this quality. The response we have already had to Richard Cork’s talk has been terrific.”
