Into the Light Exhibition Meeting

12th December 2019 17.30 – 18.30 @The White Lion, 10 High St, Thornbury, Bristol BS35 2AQ.

As our next exhibition is fast approaching this coming January the 29th – Feb 1st at St Helen’s Church in Alveston we thought it would be good to get together and have an informal meeting. This exhibition is open to all members of the Severnside Art Collective and is FREE* to enter with the focus on working together to showcase the talented artists in our area. There is space for 10 artists whose work reflects the theme of ‘Into the Light’.

You are welcome to come along with your proposals. We are open to all types of media and will do our best to accommodate your requirements. If you can’t come to the meeting please email severnsideartcollective@gmail.com to discuss any matters further.

*there will be a small charge to cover costs incurred for the exhibition, please note this will be discussed at the meeting (i.e. heating, advertising, brochures, etc).

Textiles at Black Rock [archieved]

27th of November 10.30 -12.30 AM

Share in an afternoon with the artist Caroline Stealey learning about her practice as a textile artist. We will be exploring a ‘sense-of- place’ at Black Rock through photography and drawing. Black Rock sits between the two Severn bridges where an intriguing mix of abandoned man-made structures and rubble meets with the tidal forces of the river Severn. We will be entwining with natural textiles and found sea-glass, stones, pebbles and discovering how this connects us to a ‘sense-of-place’.

“The work I make is influenced by place, nature and historical events. I use maps and old historical documents for reference, and build layers of marks, usually with textiles and mixed media” – Caroline Stealey

Found drawings are the traces of marks left by natural phenomenon. We will spend the afternoon wandering around this 15th century estate, collecting found drawings in any media you bring. Snap, draw, stitch, frottage, paint, dance, arrange and contribute in your own small way (please bring your own materials).
