We're delighted to announce the publication of our latest Random Spectacular project, The Lumber Room: Unimagined Treasures (RS011).
As part of the new work presented at this year's York Open Studios event, Mark Hearld has created a series of hand-decorated platters, a few of which are pictured here.
Artists Emily Sutton and Mark Hearld will soon open their doors again as part of the York Open Studios event.
Running over the last two weekends of April, Emily will exhibit a selection of new paintings, drawings and print. Mark has created a series of new mixed-media collages, limited edition prints and hand-decorated slipcast cockerels and painted platters.
Created by the Bulldog Trust in partnership with nine museums and galleries based in Sussex (including Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, Charleston, De La Warr Pavillion, Towner Art Gallery and Pallant House Gallery) the exhibition examines why artists and writers were drawn to the rolling hill, seaside resorts and villages of Sussex in the first half of the 20th century, creating artistic communities who innovations developed alongside political, sexual and domestic experimentation.
Over the past couple of years we've had the pleasure of working with artist, writer, musician and cultural geographer Rob St. John. Rob and Tommy Perman contributed to our Random Spectacular No. 2 journal, discussing their Water of Life project and we've since collaborated on the Concrete Antenna 12" vinyl/print project and Score Tae The Toor.
Widely admired today as an illustrator and printmaker, Edward Bawden (1903-89) is hardly a ‘forgotten artist’. Yet one aspect of his career has been neglected until now: his role in the 1930s as a critically-acclaimed modern painter.
