Jo says “I have been working hard in the studio developing a new body of work as part of the “Frames of Reference” artists bursary awarded in conjunction with Bloor Homes & Gingko Projects. The bursary is provided to create work inspired by the heritage & landscape around Amesbury in Wiltshire & forms part of the larger Kings Gate public art project. Research has been by kind permission of Amesbury Abbey, a residential care home not open to the public. There have been many previous settlements and building on the site; the current house boasts features such as an ornate plaster ceiling and a portico with Corinthian columns. Work in progress is pictured above – the project concludes in December.
I’m delighted to be one of 20 artists exhibiting in the group show “Collection Point” at Kobi & Teal in Frome, Somerset from 1st November – 23rd December; the new Convivial series (image below) will go on show for the first time.
And finally….I am thrilled to be supported by the Arts Council England for a joint project with artist Anya Beaumont called GrowFlowShow. Inspired by the heritage & architecture of Corsham the project includes artist development and supports brand new work culminating in several exhibitions & events around the town. The main show, titled Flourish, will be at Pound Arts in Corsham in June 2019, in conjunction with the Blue Sky Festival. Watch this space!
