We would be very pleased to see you at our Turps end of year show, opening Friday 10 July at Turps Gallery. We will also open our working studios so you can have a nose through all the other stuff we’ve made, and are currently working on, over the last couple of months.
We hope that this approach of displaying a taster in the galleries and then seeing a real snapshot of the whole practice will make for a more interesting visit than turning everything into a degree show style format.
We’d be delighted if you come and join us for a drink and see what we’ve been up to as a result of our year of painting at Turps. The Turps Painting Programme is a studio based professional practice mentoring scheme including friendly and honest talks from visiting artists alongside mentoring from the team of truly excellent mentors.
The programme focuses on painting, encouraging wide ranging dialogues on the subject in an increasingly digital world where I feel that the pleasure of the slow act of observing and encountering a painting in real life will never die.
Many of us, including myself, have gained so much from the experience, that we are continuing next year.
The show will remain open over the weekend of 11 and 12 July, 11am-5pm. I’ll be around on the Sunday from 11am-2pm and at the opening. It’s also possible to view by appointment only on Wednesday 15 July. If you’d like to come along that day then please let me know and I can arrange for someone to show you around.
