Summer art exhibition on display in Kings Hill

Vibrant colours are one of the hallmarks of the newly-opened summer art exhibition in Kings Hill.

Among the seven artists whose work is on display is painter and printmaker Sonya Walters, who has exhibited widely across the UK including at the Tate St Ives and in Royal Academy Summer Shows. She says a fascination with colour is the all-encompassing ingredient in her art. 

Her work can now be viewed for free in The Control Tower Gallery in the centre of the garden village as well as the 4 Abbey Wood Road and 17 Kings Hill Avenue office buildings.

Also on show and exhibiting works that are rich in colour are painters Antonia Thompson, Fiona Stanbury, Jacqui Painter and Jo Wilkinson. All are accomplished and well-regarded artists whose works have been shown in locations as diverse as London, Beijing and Latvia.

Joining them are Diccon Daley, known for his metal sculptures of wild animals; ceramicist Frances Doherty, whose pottery is inspired by flowers and plants; and photographer and printmaker Paul Boyle. 

The exhibition is spread across nine locations – eight office buildings, each highlighting the work of one or two of the participating artists, and The Control Tower Gallery, which features a selection from them all. 

“It has been a great pleasure to put together this exhibition and showcase the work of such talented artists,” said June Frickleton of Frickleton Fine Art, who curates the ongoing programme of exhibitions in Kings Hill on behalf of developer Liberty Property Trust. “There is a range of styles and media on display offering visitors an engaging mix of works to enjoy.”

The exhibition is open to the public between 9am and 5.30pm from Monday to Friday. It runs until Friday, 2 August. Viewings of The Control Tower Gallery exhibition can be booked by contacting June Frickleton at or by attending an open afternoon starting at 12.30pm on Friday, 19 July.
