Reflect - an exhibition of paintings by Sue Spivey

Mon 14th June 2021 to Sun 18th July 2021

Free with admission

My new exhibition ‘Reflect’ explores all aspects of that word, be it in a literal sense, e.g. inspired by Reflections in Glass, Water and other reflective surfaces, or in a more meditative sense e.g. inspired music, dreams, origins and meanings of life. Shape, colour and pattern are used as building blocks to construct a meditative story

While I work principally with acrylics on stretched canvas, the use of other media such as fine pens, structure gels and modelling pastes during the construction of the work  allows me to use textures and patterns to add to the stories I create.

I’ve exhibited in a large number of venues including Burton Agnes Hall, Bridlington Spa Gallery and Ferens Art Gallery Hull, both by myself and also at times with fellow artist Diane Rotherforth using the partnership name Double Vision.

With a BA Fine Art Degree, PGCE and BA Post Graduate Degree in Art and Humanities, I love learning! I also enjoy teaching, having retired from my post as Art Curriculum Development Officer with East Riding Adult Education Service 10 years ago, and am a qualified Art Tutor teaching classes both for my community in Hessle and also for Hessle U3A.


I’m an active member of Society for All Artists (SAA), East Riding Artists (ERA) and Hull Street Artists.


I hope you will enjoy this exhibition of my paintings.

Over 80 different species of birds have been spotted at Burton Constable, from the smallest British bird, the Goldcrest, to large birds of prey such as Buzzards and Barn Owls
Afternoon tea was created by the Duchess of Bedford in the late 18th century. She invited friends to join her for an afternoon meal of small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, sweets and, of course, tea. The practice was so popular that it was quickly adopted by other social hostesses 

The Burton Constable Whale is featured in Herman Melville's famous novel Moby Dick. 

Today the Burton Constable Whale is nicknamed 'Constable Moby'
