Meet The Artists & Talk about ‘Body Image in the eyes of an Artist’

May 22 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On May 22nd between 1-4pm we will be hosting a ‘Meet The Artists’ event where visitors will get the chance to meet and talk to the artists featured in our current exhibition; Caroline Le Vine and Gail Reid.

A perfect chance to ask questions and learn more about their art practice both artists will be in attendance for the afternoon, where we will be providing light refreshments in the garden.

At 3pm Gail will be hosting a free 30 minute live talk titled ‘Body Image through the eyes of an Artist’.

As an artist who draws from life Gail celebrates human imperfection, and is very passionate about representing real bodies within both arts and the media. She will talk a bit about her experiences of life drawing and how it can be a powerful, constructive and transformative process.

Gail & Cheryl

“Breast cancer relentlessly stripped away everything that I deemed as feminine and beautiful about my body and appearance… I was bruised, broken and in pain but the universe introduced me to the very talented Gail at exactly the right moment. I love life modelling. I love that it’s empowering me with an awareness that a scarred body is an interesting and unique body of light and shade” — Cheryl

 

For those of you unable to attend in person we will be live streaming the talk on our Facebook page.

 

We do not require visitors to pre-book for this event. We do however ask that guests are respectful of each others space in regards to the current situation. We also ask that you wear your mask whilst inside the gallery or workshop space.
