We will have a 1-2 hour discussion about the current art market (online especially), the situation of emerging artists, and the connection between artists and the buyers. Prototype test may also be included. 

The discussion will be held in two ways:

Nexus: Meetings at the Edge

Share

Category:

This exhibition at Kirkcaldy Galleries looks at some of the ways in which 21st-century artists and makers are changing preconceptions about their art forms.

Jewellery, silversmithing, textiles and ceramics all have long histories and deep-rooted traditions behind them. Today their familiar, often restricting, boundaries are being expanded by makers taking leaps of imagination and devising fresh approaches to the way they work.

The exhibitors in Nexus are linked by great technical skill, a capacity for free-thinking and confidence in their ideas. However, each has found their own way of extending the boundaries of their art form.

Nexus celebrates the unexpected. None of the work in this exhibition may be quite what it seems…

Curated by Dr Elizabeth Goring for Fife Contemporary in collaboration with Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales, it features 20 artists from around Britain and Ireland.

Bouke de Vries, Memory Vessel, 2016, ceramic and glass

Reflecting the resurgence of craft and skills-based making in art over the past decade, this one-day symposium explores common ground between contemporary art and studio ceramics. Emphasising the commonalities between artist and craftsperson, the event focuses on practical, theoretical, and professional aspects of working with clay, embodied in its malleability and resistance - its plasticity.

-          Mathew Leung (Assemble architecture collective)

-          Caroline Achaintre (Artist)

-          Florence Peake (Artist, Choreographer)

-          Bouke de Vries (Conservator, Artist)

-          Dr. David Stent (Visual Arts, West Dean College)

-          Julian Stair (Potter, Writer)

Panel Chairs:

-          Rosie Cooper (Head of Exhibitions DLWP)

-          Alison Sandeman (Studio Potter)

-          Katie Schwab (Artist)

The symposium will be a day of discussion, identifying common ground, appreciating difference, and celebrating clay as a material that feeds the imagination.

Booking required. Please visit the West Dean College website for details: https://www.westdean.org.uk/events/ceramic-plasticity

Therapeutic Creative Writing Group

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”  ~ James Baldwin

Writing and reading provides us with the solace of knowing our stories are shared through characters that champion our cause. Seeing the ailments and conditions one grapples with in elaborate descriptive detail and form, further reminds us what James Baldwin conveys in his beautiful quote, that even in our brokenness we are more alike, than we are different.

As a trauma therapist I give priority to cultivating life-affirming creative and spiritual pursuits that inform one's sense of pride and purpose, so as to encourage thriving.

With this intention I am recruiting people for a Therapeutic Creative Writing Group

This 90 minute Group will meet twice/month Sunday @ 5 PM in midtown Manhattan.  Consultation is free and cost for each group is $60.

For registration and details call Rev. Sheri Heller, LCSW 212-594-9801 or email at sheri@sheritherapist.com // sheritherapist.com
