Participants will further also be treated to support and challenge from artist Wendy Tate, who will be around to help Rob to provide interesting sessions. Wendy is an artist working with paint, print, photo ,video, ceramics and artists books.

Country to Coast Art Exhibition

Local artist Peter Watson attended Hull College of Art and Liverpool College of Art in the 1960’s, where he experienced the legacy of the vibrant “Liverpool Scene” of artists, poets and musicians. Then followed a period of teaching in schools around Scarborough, but he continued to paint in his spare time.

The inspiration for his current work on display in The Carriage House at Burton Constable is derived from the Yorkshire landscape and in particular the Yorkshire Wolds and the Holderness coast.

This exhibition is included in the normal admission charges.

Andy Lambeth – An Evening in Monks Harris

An Evening in Monks Harris is a series set across a single evening in a fictional northern village in the 1970s.

At first glance, it appears to be an illustration that you would expect to see in a children’s book, but on closer inspection the paintings reveal this not to be the case, as each one has a darker side representing the toil of everyday life.

Jake Attree: A Case For Place, Landscape Issues

A two day workshop, working alongside artist Jake Attree, exploring the River Ancholme in Brigg through drawing and painting.

Day 1 will begin with making sketchbook drawings along the riverbank with the intention of finding a suitable subject for painting, developing these ideas into a more resolved and larger drawing. Jake will bring sketchbooks and larger drawings to show how he approaches this concept, as well as giving a demonstration.

On Day 2 you will begin painting in oils or watercolour all day, either from drawings in the studio or on site (depending on participants’ preferences and the weather!). Jake will be on hand to offer advice, direction and encouragement, concluding the day with a plenary session and a sense of fulfilment.

Feefo

Feefo

Feefo is an exhibition of work by artist Sarah Johnson, showcasing incredibly beautiful and detailed textile pieces.

Speaking about her work, Sarah said: “My theme is a feminist kimono. They represent fish released from a net to their freedom and of course I chose Suffragette colours, as we are talking about ‘partial emancipation’ this year on International Woman’s Day.”

Graft in Flux

Graft in Flux

The HMP Humber Art Department, known as GRAFT Studio, is collaborating with Artlink on an immersive and interactive exhibition, focused on the changing landscape and the aspirations of those currently working and living in the secure prison units.

GRAFT’s ethos is to use art as a vehicle to improve confidence, grow self-esteem, and to incrementally transform individuals by engaging them in a pro-active intervention program. Elements and working practices from the Studio will be recreated to allow visitors to observe and take part in the environment, projects, techniques, and journey of HMP Humber’s students.

Work made by visitors will then be displayed as part of the evolving exhibition.

GRAFT aspires to offer individuals new creative thinking skills and professional development. They do this by providing a visual learning environment, programmes, courses, and therapy. Participants find confidence, self-esteem, and the realization that there is something to be gained from the acts of creating and giving back. When everyone is treated with mutual respect and commitment, we enrich others and create a safer, more inclusive community for everyone.

Preview evening: Fri 13 Apr, 6-8pm.

Impermanent Markers on the Land

Impermanent Markers On The Land

An art exhibition by Fern Lily Smith, a recent York University graduate.

Speaking about her work, Fern says, “I am interested in creating organic forms out of disposable, biodegradable materials.

I create ephemeral sculptures and drawings, that are modified by natural phenomenons. I am interested in the delicate tensions between natural materials: and my presence within the uncertainty of nature. Rather than working against the strengths of nature, I utilise these powerful forces as a method to construct“.

Entry into this exhibiton is free, and is open Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, 10am – 2pm.

Charlie Broomfield - Individuals

Charlie Broomfield: ‘Individuals’

Artlink’s Spotlight programme presents Hull based artist Charlie Broomfield.

A fine arts graduate, Charlie is interested in studying people through drawing—particularly within inner city environments. Using a variety of mediums, he interprets the people he witnesses into two dimensional individuals, which are assimilated into publications and materialistic forms.

Charlie’s minimal approach and gestural marks capture the essence of his subjects. The nature of his methods and materials emphasise the individuality of the people he observes. They are translated into hand-drawn caricatures, representing a moment or series of moments trapped in time.

Spotlight is Artlink’s ongoing programme highlighting local artistic talent from Hull and its surrounding area in their Princes Avenue Spotlight gallery space.

Open evening: Fri 13 Apr, 6-9pm.

What Is

What Is… Light?

A cross-discipline arts event held in a secret but intimate location. A What Is? event typically features visual artists, writers, musicians, performers, mysterious sound and lighting and a leap into the unknown.

Part exhibition, part performance, here’s something that you may never have experienced before. Artists are paired. One creates, one responds. Both reflect on the chosen theme and go on their own journey of self-inquiry and reflection.

Artists are not provided with a brief; rather, they are provided with the theme and provided with an opportunity to create work in response to someone working in a different discipline resulting in absolute creative freedom albeit within some parameters.

Previous What Is? events have taken place in rediscovered spaces, such as an old shop, heritage space, a disused office, somewhere with a view, a forgotten but amazing space no longer in use, spaces that are intimate and offer an unexpected adventure.

The result is as satisfying to audience members as it is to those creating the work. This promises to be a memorable occasion in the company of a collective of artists seeking new ways to work.

Audience members will be informed of the meeting point for the event 48 hours before the event via email.

Get involved: For this event What Is? Collective would like to ask you to submit a word (or words) that will be used as inspiration for creating new pieces of work and incorporated into writing that will be performed at the event. Submit to @whatiscollectiv or via the What Is? website.
