Arteria Launches its 5th Annual “MUMS THAT MAKE” Campaign…..and “DADS THAT DO” are invited too!
Award winning Arteria with Gallery 23 is celebrating 5 years of the “MUMS THAT MAKE” campaign by introducing a new concept.
 
For 2016 and beyond they will be looking for “MUMS THAT MAKE” and “DADS THAT DO”
 
It will be a great opportunity for five Mums and five Dads to showcase their creative and artistic skills. Those 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.
 
Last year’s winners Kate Kato and Naomi Dickinson, who have since exhibited at the Gallery, will help with the selection process of the overall winners for the 2016 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 Monday 11th July.

Jenny (COO & CO) is a visual artist based in Lancaster who is a permanent exhibitor at ARTERIA WITH GALLERY 23

“In my current artwork I use a lot of printing techniques, I love the freedom it gives me to repeat and layer my drawings.”

Wildlife and nature feature a lot in her work, combining drawings, collage and print making, using “messy” gestural lines to capture the energy and movement of the subjects.

“I use layers of vintage paper to build up the tones and textures of my subject, I love the happy accidents that occur with the placement of collage– lines and colours of the paper referencing the original subject but also creating something new and different.”

HOME MADE HOME - a new Gallery exhibition

Your home is your oasis.

Your home is your comfort zone.

It reflects your personality.

It reflects your values.

It is a place that holds sentiment and where special memories are made.

It can be a private or a social space.

It holds nods to the past and looks to the future.

It’s a place to nest and a place to invest in your personal well being.

The home is a space where you can create a mood, an ambience, a warm welcome.

 

The “HOME-MADE-HOME” exhibition at Gallery 23 recognizes how special a place your home is. Interior pieces made by highly skilled artisans are grouped in design schemes from Mid Century to modern day.

 

Such care has been taken to hand craft bespoke, unique accessories and artworks that make a statement from the subtle to the bold.

 

“HOME-MADE-HOME” runs from18th January to 7th May 2016

I am a self taught felt artist living in rural Lancashire. My passion for wool began many years ago.  I have always loved the textures of pure wool, its sweet smell and all the amazing colours that come from such an incredibly versatile fibre.

I began knitting but then went on to buying my own fleeces, spinning, then experimenting with wet felting and now needle felting. I use a single needle that has small barbs on it to sculpt the wool fibre.

The barbs on the needle catch the scales on the fibre and push them through the layers of wool, tangling them and binding them together.  Eventually, the wool can be sculpted into different shapes, a process which can be quite time consuming but enjoyable!

I love taking the earthy fleece and turning it into little characters that inhabit our beautiful landscape. Each item I make is unique and has its own personality and tale to tell.

know someone who loves books?……looking for a gift that is under £20?…….how about one of these beautiful hand printed / handmade book sacs by local maker Sarah Hampson. Designs available at Arteria Ltd in the first floor Gallery and are £18 each….we just love them! 🙂
