Forgotten Heroes

Artistic and cultural eventsPosted by Janette Thu, October 15, 2015 16:14:13

As part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas, new EAST member, Felicity is one of the artists involved in an exhibition remembering the "forgotten heroes" of WWI.

This First World War centenary exhibition works with the artists - Janice Wilkins, Caroline Jaine and Felicity Borwick - to create a legacy for the "Forgotten Heroes" of the Great War, including people from Britain’s dominions and colonies who fought alongside the British. This collection of is as a result of artists collaborating with WWI historians to unearth images and stories of the subjects. Taking inspiration from the photographs, the artists have produced fresh new portraits to honour and commemorate their service.

Visit the Michaelhouse Centre in Cambridge between 19th and 31st October to be sure to see them and learn more about their stories.

For a free downloadable catalogue of the show please visit this link.

Printed copies are available at the exhibition (subject to numbers).

Slow Art Day - 11 April 2015

Artistic and cultural eventsPosted by Janette Fri, April 10, 2015 19:19:03
Tomorrow (11.4.2015) is officially Slow Art Day, encouraging the art of really looking. It is a skill I have begun to appreciate recently.

It has been suggested that most people when visiting an art exhibition spend only a few seconds looking at each piece before moving on. When confronted by a large selection of works, it is difficult not to. However, by spending time on just a few choice works it can be more rewarding and it may surprise you how much you see.

The advice for the Slow Art Day is to visit an art gallery (their website gives an international list of museums and galleries that are taking part), choose about five pieces of work and then spend 5 to 10 minutes on each one. Afterwards, if you in an official group (or if not if you are with a friend), spend time discussing what you have seen.

The advice is to:

Pause - Observe - Reflect

It would be nice to think that someone visiting Between the Lines at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester might take the opportunity to look at these art works slowly - and we know some visitors already have.

Between the Lines at Cirencester continues for just over one week now - finishing on the 19 April 2015. It will not be on display again until it moves to Snape in the summer.

Many visitors to the BETWEEN THE LINES exhibition at Braintree Museum have commented on how much they have enjoyed looking at the workbooks.

We know ourselves how useful, and enjoyable it is to see how artists developed their ideas. Here are a few snippets of some of the pages on display, with pages by Ellen Devall (top left), Tricia (top right), Liz (bottom left) and June (bottom right).

The exhibition continues until Saturday, 14th March 2015 - the exhibition will be taken down at 2pm on that day so don't leave your visit until the last minute.
