This is a valuable opportunity for artists and those working within the visual arts to widen networks, share feedback and get advice on practice and projects. Everyone is welcome to attend. The wonderful setting of National Trust property, Barrington Court will enable participants to see the growing accumulation of contemporary artworks as part of the ongoing Scion contemporary art programme. The day will include a curator’s tour of the artworks with Beacon, as well as presentations from Scion’s curator John Plowman; exhibiting artist Louise K. Wilson; and curator-artist duo Amelia Beavis-Harrison and Alan Armstrong.
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ARTISTS TO TAKE PART will be in a special Pecha Kucha! - a simple Power Point presentation format where each artist shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and the artist talks along to the images, in this way each artist will be able to present their work for 6 minutes 40 seconds.
