The centrally-located Architects Gallery is currently exhibiting two talented artists in its unique and quirky space – Anne Pen Sweet and Marcella Cinkova.

Anne grew up in Australia where the power and scale of the landscape was a formative and lasting influence on her work. Her travels through her home country and then throughout Asia, England and America fed her fascination for remote and wild places. She describes herself as “drawn to the silence of the desert and the mountains” which is exemplified in her work which captures feelings of stillness, space and timelessness.

Marcella was born in a small town in the Czech Republic. She completed her Masters degree and creates glass items which include vases and bowls, as well as painting on flat glass, canvas and hard board.
