Term 3, 2017
Term 3 brings your last chance to see Martino Gamper’s 100 Chairs in 100 Days, and Petra Cortright’s digital paintings. Our programmes for these exhibitions have proved immensely popular but we still have a few places left. The exhibitions will be open until the end of week 3 (13 August) so be sure to book in quickly!
We’ll be opening new shows mid-way through the term including Occulture: The Dark Arts a group show of prints, paintings and sculpture by artists who share a fascination with other-worldly subjects. We also have work by John Stezaker, an artist who makes distinctive collages using vintage postcards and archive images. We’ll be running printmaking and collage workshops alongside these exhibitions.
We would love you to join us at the Teachers Preview for this new season on 7 September to view the work and find out about the education programmes on offer.
For more information or to make a booking contact Claire or Helen.
Until 13 August
Art and Design Tour and Workshop
Digital Painting at City Gallery and Capital E
Spend the day developing digital technology skills and learning about painting—past, present and future. At City Gallery students will take inspiration from Petra Cortright’s colourful, slow-moving, digital artworks. They’ll experiment with painting techniques in the education studio to create multi-layered compositions. At Capital E’s MediaLab students will make their own digital collages, then immerse themselves in the futuristic world of painting, creating 3D artworks in virtual reality.
Collage Tour and Workshop
Discover the work of John Stezaker, an artist who makes distinctive collages using vintage postcards and archive images. Students will take part in discussions and activities to investigate the creative potential of making unlikely connections, and then create their own collage using found images.
From 12 August
Printmaking Tour and Workshop
View and discuss prints and drawings in Occulture: The Dark Arts that draw on literary characters. We’ll look at a series of monoprints by Jason Greig that were inspired by Robert Louise Stevenson’s novel The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as well as pen and ink drawings by Leo Bensemann whose sources include Dr Faustus, the Brothers Grimm, and The Arabian Nights.
Students will devise their own dark character and make a monoprint to take back to school. A great programme to lead into creative writing.
Please get in touch if you have any concerns around the themes in this exhibition.
