ARTERIA ARTISAN – JENNY McCABE

ARTERIA ARTISAN - JENNY McCABE


“I have always been a visual artist, working in a variety of different mediums and settings. For the last 11 years I have worked constantly with printmaking. I have used screen printing for many years to transfer my drawings on to fabric and paper, playing with layers or colour and collaged papers to reference my subject’s colour’s and
textures.”

 

“All my work starts with drawing, it is the basis of everything, my aim is to capture my subjects movement and energy and communicating those idea in messy gestural lines.”

 

“I have more recently begun to work with master printer – Iain Sloan at Ironpress printmaking in the Storey Lancaster. Learning new printmaking techniques, Etchings and dry points where I can learn to use my mark making in a different way, building up lines and textures on the metal plates, and respecting traditions and age old skills.”

 

“Also a process that has captured my imagination called Collagraphy – a technique using simple cardboard and glue to create a printing plate by scoring into the card and sticking layers to the surface, creating the textures needed to hold the ink and achieve a print. I love the fact it is very lo-fi and accessible to anyone- I find what you can make a piece of card do amazing!”

 

“My work always has a focus on wildlife and nature, simply because of its endless supply of fascinating subjects!”

 

“This body of work is the beginnings of a large study of the European starling (Sturnus vulgaris) an often overlooked common garden bird, I have huge affection for them and their jagged angular appearance, their often aggressive mob like behaviour and of course their incredible flocking producing breath taking murmuration’s of thousands of birds in the autumn skies.”

BOHEMIA @ GALLERY 23

“BOHEMIA” @ GALLERY 23

“A bohemian is simply an artist who consciously or unconsciously secedes from conventionality in life and in art” Westminster Review 1862

A Bohemian is a non conformist an avant-gardist. They are a free spirited individual.

The intention of “BOHEMIA” @ Gallery 23 is to capture that sense of freedom and liberation of expression.

It will reflect upon historical and contemporary bohemia, on its origins and its global influences. It will focus on the relaxed well being that this informal ethos brings.

The “BOHEMIA” exhibition is a retreat from the “norm” and a sanctuary from the everyday.

The exhibition runs from 11TH MAY TO 7TH OCTOBER 2017

THE LAUNCH OF MUMS THAT MAKE & DADS THAT DO 2017

THE LAUNCH OF MUMS THAT MAKE & DADS THAT DO 2017

ARTERIA LAUNCHES THE 6TH ANNUAL “MUMS THAT MAKE & DADS THAT DO” CAMPAIGN……AND HIGHLIGHTS THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATIVE PRACTICES

 

#ARTMATTERS #CREATIVITYCOUNTS

 

Award winning Arteria with Gallery 23 launch their 6th Annual MUMS THAT MAKE & DADS THAT DO campaign.

 

The event is an opportunity for artistic parents to apply to showcase their creative skills. The 5 Mums and 5 Dads shortlisted will not only have their work displayed at the Brock Street store, but the winning mum and winning dad will also be awarded a Bath House “pamper hamper” and will book themselves a place in a future gallery exhibition.

 

We believe the importance of creation and imagination cannot be overlooked or undervalued. As we see art courses and creative practices fall from curriculums, now more than ever it is vital that we maintain the vibrancy, inspiration and sheer joy born out of creativity.

 

Creative thought and practice encourages expression and builds confidence. It is contagious and can generate reciprocal delight. It can also inspire a future generation to keep creating art!

 

We do think that the world would indeed be flat without the efforts and impact of creative pioneers. How much of our leisure time is spent being challenged, enlightened and entertained by the results of art and creativity. Simply put, it enhances quality of life.

 

#ARTMATTERS     #CREATIVITYCOUNTS

 

Whether you think you are creative or not, as a parent you will help your children “colour in” you will read, sing and dance with your wee ones. You are more creative than you think……so help us spread the word for this event that supports and offers opportunities to men and women who juggle family life with being artists and makers.

 

Last year’s winners John Simon and Fay Shoesmith, will help with the selection process of the overall winners for the 2017 campaign.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to give a huge acknowledgement of thanks to our loyal and local sponsors BATH HOUSE who have been so generous in their support of the event and supplying stunning pamper hampers for our winners since the campaign first launched.

 

Application forms can be emailed to those who want to take part or picked up from Arteria. For more information please call Sharon on 01524 61111 or email info@arteriashop.co.uk.

 

The completed forms need to be returned or emailed by 5pm FRIDAY 30TH JUNE.

NEW IN @ ARTERIA “TOOLALLY” JEWELLERY

“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”
GORE VIDAL

“When I first started thinking about making jewellery, I knew I didn’t want to do it quietly. I wanted my pieces to have impact; to be bold and beautiful with no apologies. So that’s what I set out to do. Toolally jewellery makes a statement. I want women to have confidence in their style, to let their personality shine through the things they wear. Our Jewellery Collection offers women a subtle way to add a little drama to their wardrobe. And when I see a simple look transformed by a pair of Toolally earrings, I know we’re getting it right.” Mags @ Toolally
HANDMADE IN THE UK

All Toolally jewellery is handcrafted in their beautiful Yorkshire studio, where they draw inspiration from the colours, shapes and textures that surrounds.

PRICES £35-£45
