I met Anita this week and we had a lovely chat about creativity, family, art, inclusion etc and went to look at Penwith Gallery. She went into the studio for a morning the next day, first time she has 'had time' for many years.
While chatting different ways of describing artists came up, emerging is one i often use she mentioned frozen, blocked etc.
A chance to get into a studio is a way back into a dialogue with their work for many artists, as many artists such as Rose Hilton don't start work again fully till their family can give them time.
Many people remark on what a nice atmosphere the studio has, Elly has also been in this week, along with Sally, Zoe, Laura, and Lou and Sam plans to return after his week there to do more.
A visit to the Tate on the 19th is organised by Laura, it is open to all Shallal Studio artists.
