Study event: St. Ives
Join OCA tutor Andy Hughes in St. Ives for a weekend in May.
This weekend workshop will be focused on a multidisciplinary approach to landscape and place. During day one we will visit the Barbara Hepworth garden/studio and the Tate Gallery where we will see historical works and new work by the Egyptian-Canadian artist Anna Boghiguian. This exhibition will feature large-scale installations of cut-out paper figures, alongside paintings, collages and books, as well as components of the artist’s studio brought to St Ives. While addressing current global concerns, the exhibition resonates with the local context of St Ives as an artists’ community, and Cornwall’s industrial history in terms of seafaring and trade.
During day two you will be based in the historic Porthmeor Studios overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Day two will enable students to create visual work in response to the previous day’s experiences through discussion and advice and explore ideas using creative materials including photography and collage. Each student will have an opportunity to display work in a pop up exhibition/crit.
Your tutor is Andy Hughes. In 1993 Andy was the first artists in residence at the Tate St Ives, he has a personal connection to the town its artists and galleries. In 2014 he took a studio residency at Porthmeor and is well placed to offer expert critical and practical advice and support.
