Studies for Urban Bees: Working Together

The third Devon Guild member taking part in this project I would like to introduce you to is Helen Edwards. Based in South Devon, Helen uses her skills in ceramics, metals and textiles to construct intricate and unique Mixed Media artwork with visual and tactile appeal. Photography, printing and etching, stitching, weaving and dyeing are some of the many processes Helen uses to give her work its characteristic texture, pattern and colour. (more…)

More Artists from 33,000 Miles!

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).

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
