Edinburgh Art Fair - Preparations

Exciting preparations for the Edinburgh Art Fair - last week this involved a studio visit to select a body of work from Yorkshire based artist Bren Head. Bren has the most amazing studio tucked into the cliffs just under the moors of Stoupe Brow giving spectacular view over Ravenscar and towards Robinhoods Bay. We even saw a deer in the garden who was not at all shy of extra visitors to the studio. The work inside the studio was pretty amazing too - this is what we selected to take to the Edinburgh Art Fair - stunning powerful painting!

Find us on our usual stand E2 18 - 20 Nov

Residencies at Staithes Studios

Last year we invited artist Susan Laughton to spend time at Staithes as a mini artists residency. The paintings she made in response were a stunning record of her observations. This year we are are hosting our second residency with a longer joint studio stay for artists Gemma Lacey and David Armes. Using a daily routine of walking both artists are going to communicate their findings to one another through various print methods to produce a body of collaborative work to be exhibited in the gallery in March 2017. We can't wait to see what they produce.
