The aesthetics and rhythmic qualities of the landscape is the primary influence for both artists, sometimes both artists come together, visiting and responding to the same place, other times responses are shaped by their own anthropocentric perspectives: whether this places visited, memories of a place, influences from literature, spirituality, the ephemeral use of light, the sense of wilderness or the passage of time.

THE BEYONDNESS OF BEES | Susan Brisco

A Creative Black Country funded project

Microscope drawing and stitch studies of Bees

Science meets art to look beyond the surface to see the powerful aesthetics of the microscopic world of bees. Observe the compound eye, or the hairs that carry pollen grains or the translucent, architectural detail of the wings. Explore these unseen elements through the microscope eye-piece and make new images with an intriguing abstract aesthetic through drawing and stitch. The art pieces will be combined for an exhibition which will involve a wider audience in the unexpected use of multi-media art and the wonder of bees.

Private View: Wednesday 10th of April, 6pm - 8pm.  at Eagle Works Art Gallery - (artists’ talk 7pm).  Exhibition runs 11th -18th April 11-3 pm by appointment. Just ring 07724549922 to arrange – the artist will be delighted to show you round the art works.

Running in tandem with a partner exhibition at:
Boundary Way, (The Poly tunnel) Allotments and Community Garden
Boundary Way, Wolverhampton, WV4 4NT
Saturday 27th April 11-3pm. (Artist’s talk 12 midday)

 Directions: by Highfields school - parking is on the surrounding streets

Wolverhampton - are you sitting comfortably?

PRIVATE VIEW - all welcome.

A mixed media exhibition exploring the current state of Wolverhampton through the eyes of second year fine art students at the Wolverhampton School of Art. From the flashing lights of the shopping precinct, to the dark shadows of the canal bridges, from the warmth of the coffee shop, to the cold pavements of midnight, this exhibition will showcase the issues, questions and challenges that the city faces.

| OPEN STUDIOS |

We've been quiet for a little while, but very soon we'll be opening our door for the Wolverhampton Open Studio event in coordination with Wolverhampton Society of Artists! 

We have welcomed many new artists into our studios over the summer, so this weekend event would be a fabulous opportunity to see their work as part of the group show in our gallery space, as well as visit their studios and talk to them about their work. 

We hope to see lots of you there!

STATES OF CHANGE | Group exhibition

PRIVATE VIEW - all welcome
6 - 8pm Thursday 7th June 2018

The everyday processes by which surfaces are worn down, thinned or marked by contact with weather, citizens, or other agents, and detritus deposited elsewhere, puts a particular focus on materiality.  Material in its different conditions and formations has here a particular unstable character, defined as on-going process, shifting, disappearing and distancing. The project, States of Change explores, through divers artistic practices, the idea of erosion in social or material decline, and its productive potential. The process of erosion and its continuous fluid character will be further explored in ways in which material contests assumptions of agency, control, and in more general terms, visibility. This underlines the nature of artistic practice of being in and between processes of testing and reflection, shaping states of change, environments and materials.

A sense of place, uniting local history with drawing, film and photography.

As I drove past Windmill Farm in Essington I caught a glimpse of the splendid, impressive structure sitting majestically, like an ancient monolith on a mound of earth dominating the immediate landscape. It was encircled by a wonderful vista far reaching from the Wrekin in Shropshire to Sedgley Beacon in the Metropolitan borough of Dudley.   After considerable research, I discovered this structure was in fact the ruin of Essington Windmill; and furthermore, was steeped in local history for well over 200 years. The mill served local communities, grinding grain into finely milled flour using its strategic location and available wind energy to turn the sails for rotating the mill-stone.  I quickly became captivated and bewitched by the structure and entwined histories that it inspired my artistic energies to produce a body of art work as a testament to this crumbling monument. 

My art exhibition aspires to capture an essence and spirit of the mill through a diverse range of media exploring the mill in its various stages of existence.  Using drawing, film and photography the mill is depicted majestically from past to present day and the monochromatic theme aims to provide a seductive narrative for the audience. Furthermore, the exhibition ultimately hopes to engage the audience through an artistic, poetic sense of place and re-connection with local history.
