Great Western Studios News - June10

This years Summer Open Studios was a resounding success once again. There were a number of events taking place around the building to help to make the most of the additional space now available. 
Children left smiling having completed the art trail and listened to readings from The Runaway Dinner and The Pencil by childrens book illustratorBruce Ingman.









There were also two dance performances hosted by Costume Boutique over the weekend. Anna-Mi Fredriksson performed a conceptual solo dance, created around Tamar's costume design which was a direct response to the new studio space and it's arresting views over the Grand Union Canal. Tamar also collaborated with Dane Hurst from the Rambert Dance Company to create an improvised dance performance with live musicians. Tamar utilised costumes to challenge the perception of garments that usually restrict us, such as the burka and the crinoline.





The feedback from both studio holders and visitors alike has been incredibly positive and we're already looking forward to the Christmas Open Studios.

Estelle Thompson is currently taking part in the group exhibition Sameness & Difference: An Artists Furniture showat A Russian Club Gallery. The show investigates how the artists engage with furniture and the underlying experimental impulse to dissolve art into life.



Kate Gibb
 and Tommy Penton have been selected forCreative Review's Illustration Annual which will be out in July. Showing 60 artists; this is the first time Creative Review is showcasing illustration.




Pip Hackett recently worked with underwater photographerZena Holloway, the result of the collaboration is to be seen in this months issue of French magazine, Rozebuzz.



Martha Freud
 has been nominated as an emerging designer inthe Hospital Club 100 in association with The Independent. As one of 16 up-and-coming designers Martha is recognisedfor her fresh, unconventional approach, her aesthetic sensibility and organic, ecologically informed work.
