In Greek mythology, the sun god Helios dashes daily from east to west in a chariot pulled by his galloping horses. A heartening picture as we approach the summer solstice in June looking forward to longer and sunnier days. The upcoming show ‘Helios’ at the Malthouse Gallery in Lyme Regis which opens on the Summer equinox celebrates this love for the outdoors, nature and our world.

For this exhibition, talented sculptor and curator Alison Shelton Brown has invited artists and makers from around the South West to display a wide variety of materials and techniques at a range of prices. There will be painting, jewellery, leatherwork, textiles, glass, lighting, furniture and ceramic sculpture. Something for everyone to see, touch and enjoy, with artist demonstrations throughout the ten days.

As well as work by Alison herself, the exhibition includes pinhole photography by Robin Shelton, ceramics from Jane Staniland and Richard Jeffery, furniture from designer and maker Alex Brooks, jewellery by Bronwen Gwillim and Janine Partington, textiles from Daphne Roach and Bridport maker Sharon Campbell AKA Silver & Slate, glass from Helen Eastham, paintings by Jonathan Mulvaney and lighting from Reworked.

The exhibition runs from Friday 21 June until Sunday 30 June and is open daily from 10am until 5pm.
