Fools & Angels in Belper

'Presents' flyer (front)2

Its been two years since Fools and Angels had a winter show and this year we are going to the beautiful Derbyshire Dales.  This is the first time we’ve been out of Lincolnshire for our festive season event (can’t use the C word as it upsets me too much!).

Fools & Angels are delighted to welcome our invited artists for this event at No 28, Maggie Cullen, Alison Read, Carole Beavis, Carlos Dare, Barbara Coulam, Pauline Lancaster and Ruth Gray in this collaboration of art from Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.

Invited Artists

For those who don’t know, or for those who have forgotten, this is what Fools & Angels are all about.

Mission Statement 2015

Fools& Angels are a non-profit making, self funding collective of five practising professional artists:  Richard BettKevin Wallhead, Jane Wright, Suzi L. Smith and founder Ba Wheeler.  With other invited artists we promote high quality arts holding two successful exhibitions annually.  Our reputation and patronage has continually and considerably grown over the last twenty years.

As an organisation we are consensual, selective, home grown, practical and autonomous, with a commitment to other artists.  We each take on different roles and responsibilities throughout the year in order to make these exhibitions a success.  We have learned a great deal from this process of personally attending to every detail and aspect of promoting and staging our events – from the minutiae of everyday practicalities, to the developing and clarifying of our ethos.

This exhibition is a high quality, trusted and privileged event, in a domestic setting.  As artists and craftspeople we are a dedicated group, selling direct to the public.  People are invited to share our passion for the work and the event itself, which is hospitable, accessible, celebratory, mysterious and fun.


This is our new logo …………………. for our new website, we’ve only been waiting twenty years.

It should be up and running soon …………………………but don’t hold your breath!

To see what sort of work Kevin will be taking to Belper visit

Latest news, Exhibitions, Swaledale and Shabby Shepherdesses.

It won’t be long now hopefully until we are up in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales delivering work to the Old School Craft Shop & Gallery in Muker and what’s more ……. it’s got a sheep on the roof!


As galleries go, you can’t get much more picturesque than this, Swaledale is absolutely stunning! Will have to make it an extended trip I think.

Other exhibition news is Lincolnshire Artists Society, of which I am a member, are holding    their 2015 Summer Exhibition at the Usher Gallery here in Lincoln, the dates are       15th August – 7th October.  I have some work in the kiln at the moment that I will be submitting for selection …………………….. fingers crossed!

Fools & Angels are at Hall Farm once again this year.  This is an opportunity to visit these beautiful gardens at their best. Pam and Mark Tatum work tirelessly to bring the garden to such a high standard and have further developed the ‘Meadow’ area this year,
which is reminiscent of those summer days of childhood!! Fools and Angels will be taking over the house with an exhibition of local artwork including jewellery, painting, photography, textiles, glass, ceramics and sculpture.
Refreshments are available, check out Hall Farm Website for details.
