Our crowd funder has nearly reached £500!
Last week we had 3 fun days in the studio with a gaggle of Shallal artists, artists from Express Yourself and the Liskeard group who had fun exploring the space with tape, dance, movement...
Some snaps from the time below and some film to be edited and watched.
In the studio this week, returning artists from last week finishing off some large paintings and a few new faces while Barry settles in.
Great day yesterday in the studio!
Photos received from George this morning
Barry and i came with materials, Sam and Tina arrived followed by George and Zoe and Jonathan and Laura came, lovely to see her, and Toby. So old and new faces back in that space.
We had an inspiring and fun day, with conversation, preparation, intense focus and music to work by alongside cameras, film and recording played with. We may return for a shorter session next week.
Meanwhile pleased to introduce artists from Express Yourself to the space today, Yvonne came last year but Minnie, Alisia and Miles are new.
Hope to post film and more photos soon!
See how our crowdfunder is coming along and some of the Shallal history on http://shallal-arts.blogspot.com/2018/11/so-excited-and-pleased-about-this-years.htmlshallal-arts.blogspot.com/2018/11/so-excited-and-pleased-about-this-years.html
Spot new comfy supportive chair for Jonathan - thanks to Lou! and our funders for new equipment and furniture for Shallal Studios new venue, 2 rooms at ...St Peters Church Hall, Newlyn
Sam and i went for a walk to gain inspiration after lunch in the first residency and Sam returned to draw this superb view of the main street in Redruth. It was wonderful watching it unfold and recognising all the elements.
After adding up the number of artists involved this year, now 22 returning and 15 new, I had the nerve to try to make a crowdfunder.....as slightly less formal than grant applications - although last years Creation Space was fairly pain free, but only as i had done an Arts Council application already!
Please support it if you can and do share.
Also please note that
"Sharing' event on Saturday 24 November now 1- 3pm, ( not 2-4pm)
We hope that all Shallal Studio artists will add to this blog.
