Forthcoming Artspace Events:
FRIDAY ‘ARTISTS TALK’ EVENINGS
Discover more about how artists work and share your experience over a glass of wine.
Sessions will vary from informal discussions, ‘Show & Tell’ evenings to more formal lectures.
Jen Altman Human Traces 22nd March 7pm
Jen Altman’s art emerges from her engagement with the human condition as a biologist and therapist. She explores themes of life, death and decay, mostly producing semi-abstract clay forms based on the human body but also makes drawings of her own body. She has recently used an artist’s residency to extend this into the outdoors, creating impermanentimages that were captured only in photographs, and will discuss how this work affected her studio practice.
A Brief History of Abstraction Friday May 17th 7pm
Dominic Vince gives a whirlwind tour through the development of abstract art; its ideas, themes,
theories and characters
Show and Tell Evening Friday 7th June 7pm
