James Hockey & Foyer Galleries, UCA Farnham
Private View: Friday 12 July 2013, 6-8pm
Everyone is warmly invited to attend the private view at the James Hockey & Foyer Galleries, UCA Farnham, which will feature a music performance by 'What's left of the Whiskey'.
Devised and planned by artists Nickova Behling and Michael Corlett, this exhibition, STEAM, will explore the role and work of artists who facilitate creative opportunities for people coping with a range of difficulties including learning and mental health.
STEAM focuses on the reciprocal influence between facilitating work and personal practice: how the artists influence the creativity of those who attend workshops and how the participants influence the artists in turn. The project promotes inclusive approaches to visual arts activities.
The exhibition will include work by four artist-facilitators: Nickova Behling, Michael Corlett, Sue Sargeaunt, and Jono Retallick, as well as by participants. An accompanying seminar and practical workshops will be open to the general public.
Two mono-printing workshops, fully accessible for people with multiple needs, are free of charge and take place in the gallery on Saturdays 20 & 27 July. Running from 11am –3pm, each workshop will be on a drop-in basis, so participants can join in the workshop at any point and for whatever length of time. With support from the artists, participants will work both individually and collaboratively and create a giant mono-print using a real steamroller. To book a place at either workshop, contact Nickova Behling by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
A public seminar will be held free of charge in the Galleries on Tuesday 16 July 2013, 7–9 pm. All contributing artists will give visual presentations and engage in discussion about their work and approach to facilitating creativity in others. To book a place at the seminar, contact Nickova Behling by email: email@example.com
