Exhibition to Launch a New Gallery Space

Current
Launching a new exhibition space in Exeter

Excited to be invited to help launch a new gallery space in Exeter.

The space is to be found in the Centre for Creative Industries building at Exeter College just off Queen Street. Very happy to be invited to show with some top class artists.

There was a great sildenafil atmospere at the launch with music and canapés provided by the students. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that the canapés were so good at the gallery launch at Exeter College when Michael Caines is one of the governors. Well done to the young people studying hospitality and catering.

Demonstration Videos with Double Elephant

A major event in 2012 was the creation of some demonstration videos with Double Elephant Print Workshop.

You can see them all HERE!

I did the demonstration for the Collagraph video. It took a WHOLE DAY! In true Blue Peter style I had prepared my project at various stages in its development so that I didn’t have to waste time waiting for paint to dry.

Take a LOOK

You can see a proof being pulled valium from the finished plate in the video. And here is one of the finished prints I made shortly after – when I had time to fuss about colours and add mono print plant material too.

Spring Hedgerow III

To go with the Collagraph video is another short one of “Top Tops”.

Do take time to look at my colleagues videos for drypoint, mono print and relief print too.

Devon Open Studios 2012 8-23 September

In September I took part in Devon Open Studios (DOS) for the first time in years.

 

I had been quite happy taking part in just Exeter Open Studios (EOS) for the past few years. But I was aware that there was a strong possibility that EOS wouldn’t take place this November. This was mainly due to the person who organised EOS for the past couple of years being seriously ill. That person has since made a good recovery, but my hunch was correct and EOS has been postponed to spring 2013.

First go at Video!!

Having come across Animoto I thought I’d have a go at making a little 30 second video.

After all it looks ridiculously easy!! And it really was as easy as it looked. You just choose a video style from a selection available, choose some music from their library of licensed music, upload some photographs (and video clips if you happen to have some) then cross your fingers while the programme does the work for you!!

More Artists from 33,000 Miles!

A glimpse of one of the photographs by Robert Darch

Time has been passing alarmingly fast and the launch date for the exhibition 33,000 Miles is only a few days away. I had been intending to show you glimpses of the other artists work at intervals over the past few weeks, but life has been far too hectic!

So here are a few last minute glimpses that I hope will whet your appetite to come to the launch on Friday (or any time over the following two weeks – excluding Mondays).

I would like to give you a glimpse of the artwork that some of my colleagues are creating for the exhibition 33,000 Miles.

Work in progress, detail

First a reminder – the exhibition is called 33,000 Miles because that is approximately how many miles of hedgerow there are in Devon! This is more than any other county and we have more ancient hedgerow than anywhere else too.

And 33,000 Miles is an art exhibition with workshops featuring 6 Devon based artists running from 15 – 30th October at RedEarth Galler, Bickliegh. See previous news for details of the other artists. http://lynnbailey.co.uk/print/30000miles

Hedgerows are the most significant wildlife habitat over large stretches of lowland UK and are an essential refuge for a great many woodland and farmland plants and animals.” Joint Nature Conservation Committee.

Devon has more hedges remaining than any other county in the UK. It is estimated that there are 53,000 km (33,000 miles) of hedge still in the county, and that we have about 20% of all the species-rich hedges left in the UK.

Art Haven @ RedEarth

July 16th – July 30th

Thoroughly enjoyed Art Haven’s launch at RedEarth Gallery, (Bickleigh, Devon) on Friday.

This is a lovely and diverse group of artists that I was part of until I recently decided to put more of my energies towards activities at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.

Part of what’s special about Art Haven’s launch parties is the contribution of music from Art Haven’s sculptor and sound artist Dave Sawyers band Chill Acoustics.
