Our first Artist of the Month of 2019 is Manchester-based painter Iain Andrews, we talk to him about the process of painting and his use of folk tales and allegory.
The annual Engage Conference took place in Manchester in November 2018. Titled 'A Social Prescription' the conference explored the intersection between arts, health, wellbeing and education. We made some films for Engage and talked to some of the speakers and delegates and the themes that were raised.
We'll be showing some of our Axis Directory members' work in the Ridings Shopping Centre during this month's Wakefield Artwalk, a bi-monthly event where venues across the city open their doors for an evening of art, music and performances.
Jo Clements will be exhibiting her project 'We Will Never As Humans Be Able To See 360°' and we'll be showing work by the winners of our Streetplayer competition: James Moore, Ellie Collins, Meng Zhou, Lyndsay Martin, Joshua Armitage, Alison Lloyd, Amelia Beavis-Harrison, Liam Jolly, Jacek Ludwig Scarso and Vincent James. The Wakefield Artwalk takes place on Wednesday 30 January.
Inspired by our Artist of the Month Iain Andrews, we've selected five painters for Five2Watch: Zena Blackwell, Angela Smith, Katya Robin, Stuart Dodman and Cathy Lomax.
The response to our 'Social Works? Open' has been incredible! So incredible that we've actually run out. But if you'd still like to own a copy then you can reserve one here.
