AirSpace Studio Show 2012


AirSpace Studio's annual show begins this Friday 21st September. After two years of external site specific shows - Common Ground in Hanley Park in 2010 and Kiss Me Quick in Margate last year - this studio show is returning to a non-themed exhibition of each studio member's current practice. 

As a group, we talked about the transference of our studio work into the gallery space, to give viewers an insight into what happens upstairs at AirSpace, and so the individual exhibits are generally not necessarily finished pieces but a presentation of works in progress. 

Our studio group is a broad church, and so while there are some common links, the show will comprise the full spectrum of contemporary art endeavour and themes. Exhibitors are listed below, and watch out over the next two weeks, as we'll be blogging about each artist and their work.

The show this year also includes two workshops - Anna Francis will lead a Brownfield Ikebana session on the site of the old ABC Cinema on Broad Street, and Kate Lynch will run two Open Yarden events in the Gallery Yard, looking at themes of Perma-culture. Places for the Ikebana workshop are limited to 10 and should be booked through the Gallery, whilst the Yard sessions are open to all.

The first Yard session is 22nd September, while the Ikebana workshop and second yard event will be on October 6th.

The exhibition will run until October 6th  - Tuesdays-Saturdays 11:00-17:00 - admission is free.
