Atrium: A showcase of art & design

Friday 7th Dec, 6.30 – 10.30pm
Saturday 8th Dec, 12.00pm – 6.00pm

Set within the frame of Great Western Studios’ dramatic atrium, a new collaboration opens.

Resident artists and designers are presenting a showcase of their own work, celebrating a diversity of media. This is a unique opportunity to meet exhibitors and to buy directly from them. It will be open to the public Friday evening 7th December, and Saturday afternoon 8th December.

Explore the central atrium and its adjoining studios and gallery to find work from over 30 exhibitors. Among them you can find Jimmy Turrell, a graphic designer who combines digital techniques with handmade collage, screen printing, drawing and painting. His clients include The Guardian, Green Peace and Nike. Wendy Bain is a colourist who works with oils, acrylics and gold & silver leaf. Her paintings capture the energy and mood of landscapes with colour and movement. Julie Goldsmith is a sculptress. Her totemic figures are talismanic and poetic.

ilovegorgeous are designers of beautiful vintage-inspired clothes for girls. They will be selling samples from previous seasons’ collections. Shiv is an illustrator; working with photography and Photoshop, she creates a realistic feel within an abstract subject matter. Her clients include Sony Music, BMW and Camel.

This event promises to be an open and accessible market place with unique works on offer. In addition to the examples given above, you can also find visual arts, mosaics, ceramics, printing, photography, jewellery, leatherwork, textiles, millinery, fashion, costume, architecture and landscape design.

Come celebrate in a creative community. With the Atrium Café offering food and drink, it is set to be a vibrant and enjoyable experience.
