We are going to be hosting and afternoon Open Out at teh Lighthouse on May 27
An afternoon event where you can talk to the artists Rebecca Thomas and Rachel Collier-Wilson. Both graduates from Central Saint Martins School of Art in 1990, recently re-connected after 30 years following a chance meeting in a Norwich pub.
There will wine, fun finger food, plenty of chat and an opportunity to purchase original art and prints.
This will be an opportunity to chat about their art practices, ask questions about the printing processes, in a relaxed studio space.
About the artists:
Rebecca is an artist and academic. Her work is concerned with the ‘senses of self’: the fluidity, flow, and drift of identity and selfhood; and with the body’s relationship to nature – the sea, the landscape, the animal world. Her paintings, prints explore the body’s connection to these substantial, if somewhat ungraspable, elements.
Rachel is an artist who makes drawings and prints, she has continued to practice art since her BA Fine Arts, Printmaking from Central Saint Martins School of Art, London. She loves to explore with line using pencil, ink and carving a lino-block. She regularly attend life drawing sessions, a discipline which helps with observations of anything drawn. Diverse in life and creativity, one day drawing, or creating a print, or sewing something, the line is always consistent.
