CRITICAL MASS: MAKING THE VISUAL VISIBLE

7 Jul

Thursday 10th July, 1pm-5pm Hestercombe Gallery, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton, Somerset TA2 8LG

Please join me, Mark Segal (The Artists Agency, formerly director of the mighty ArtSway), Tom Freshwater (Contemporary Arts Programme Manager at The National Trust) and artist Alexa De Ferranti for a seminar about practice and support for artists outside of England’s cities. It takes place at Hestercombe Gallery, the new contemporary venue at Hestercombe House in the splendidly named Cheddon Fitzpaine, just north of Taunton in Somerset. You can thank Google’s “smart” search helper for the picture of “Taunton” above, by the way.

It costs £10 but bursaries and free transport are available to those who might need it, e.g. and most particularly artists. Apply ASAP, using one of the links below. You just need to very briefly explain why you’d like to attend.

More details of tickets, bursaries and transport here, along with info about Hestercombe.

Same ticket and bursary stuff, different link.

Somerset’s really “happening” right now. Hauser and Wirth faaaaaarrrmmmmmmmm. Expect a confused Phyllida Barlow or Mark Wallinger in the area soon, walking around with shopping bags on their feet like Richard E. Grant in Withnail & I. “We’ve gone on holiday by mistake. We’re in this cottage here. Are you the farmer?”

    Damn! I’d definitely be there if it wasn’t for the short notice thing. Feel free to put me on a list for rural stuff

      The organisers of this– VASW– have a mailing list. In the east, where I come from, there seems to be bugger all along these lines unless I organise it myself. Otherwise (not just for Steve, but for anyone who’s interested!) the best thing to do is follow this blog by email or via WordPress, and do the same at my work site http://www.gentry-a.co.uk

      My own work-related things are usually posted at the latter link first, then here as a reminder or addition only.
