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 BloorÂ HomesÂ &Â 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 buildingÂ on the site; the currentÂ house boastsÂ features such as an ornate plaster ceiling and a portico with CorinthianÂ 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” atÂ Kobi & TealÂ in Frome, Somerset from 1st November – 23rd December; the new ConvivialÂ 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 atÂ Pound ArtsÂ in Corsham in June 2019, in conjunction with the Blue Sky Festival. Watch this space!
