Come and join us for the next Book Arts session on 14th MARCH 2015, 10.30 to 12.30 at the usual place, Phoenix Gallery, Brighton. (Map at www.phoenixarts.org) and enjoy a pleasurable morning, relaxing in great company and having a chat.
We will be welcoming the accomplished Rosie Sherwood, and the talented Ottilie Hainsworth to talk to us about their work. Recommended for a stimulating morning, and a chance to see what might influence your own work. As well as an opportunity to network! Here's a bit about them -
Ottilie studied illustration at Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art. She makes very limited editions of handmade books, etchings and cards. She is really interested in finding ways of telling 'picture stories', particularly through comics or graphic novels.
Recently, she worked on "Brighton, The Graphic Novel". She teaches a drawing group called "Come Draw With Me" at Bombane's café in Brighton.
Her website is at http://ott216.wix.com/ottilie
Rosie Sherwood's work is driven by storeytelling and an exploration of narrative construction. Book Art lies at the heart of Sherwood's interdisciplinary practice, with sequence, structure and language, both visual and written, playing important roles. It is Sherwood's intention to make art that tells stories: emotionally, conceptually and physically.
Sherwood founded AYUpublishing (http://ayupublishing.com) in 2012, a micro-press through which she produces her own work and publishes Elbow Room, a series of art journals and live events. She graduated from Camberwell College of Art with an MA in Book Arts in 2013. She has delivered papers on the comic book as book art, and her work can be found in various collections, including The Poetry Library, Tate Library and Archive, and the National Galleries of Scotland.
Everyone welcome! All abilities, the curious, and those seeking inspiration and a reasonably good cuppa. Grab your place at 10.30 sharp. See you there....
