Workshops and Artist talk

Artists Barbara Beyer LG, Sayako Sugawara LG and Marie Therese Ross will be running two free workshops and a free artist talk this June as part of Schatten haschen. All are welcome.

Schatten haschen
From letter to image – from word to object and back. This show is a celebration of the library and museum as an inspirational force. Browsing and research accompany any artist project. In this show artists Barbara Beyer, Marie Therese Ross and Sayako Sugawara investigate their personal creative journeys in libraries and museums. These three artists, with studios based in the Borough of Camden, embrace materiality and the object. They sculpt light, clay and wood, employing photographic processes, traditional skills and experimental approaches. Drawing, sketching and developmental sculptural sketches are an integral part of all three artist’s work and play an important part in this show.
The little Draw workshop
Thursday 20th June 6-7.45pm. Suitable for all ages
This evening workshop will encourage the participants to explore the relationship between sculpture/ objects and drawing through playful and experimental use of sketchbooks. Participants will record and develop responses and thoughts related to the exhibition through drawing, writing and mono-printing. The workshop is closely linked to the exhibition and all three artists will be present to guide through the activities and share elements of their practise.
