A new studio space in July has changed my practice. The setting is utterly beautiful – an old schoolhouse owned by York Conservation Trust and 8 other artists working in pottery, homeware, ceramics, sculpting, collage, quilting, fashion, video, jewellery — all hugely inspirational and special. We’re bouncing off each other no end. Here are my artist colleagues.
We’re at ICE (Insitute for Cultural Experimentation) at The New Schoolhouse Gallery, Peaseholme Green, York City Centre, YO1 7PW.
Since I’ve been there it’s been full-on with my oil and cold wax painting – so busy and producing so much work inspired by my sketches made during my two residencies in Cornwall and in Wales.
We’re open Fridays 12 – 4pm and Saturdays 12 – 4pm for the public to visit. Oh and there are some special talks happening on Fridays too. Last week, we had the brilliant Kate Walters speaking about her emotional, mystical paintings revealing her thought processes and talking about her residency up in Orkney. Her love of words and her ability to totally ‘tune in’ to her artistic process was fascinating and of course, very inspiring.
