Current Exhibition

5 - 18 November 2018

Open Daily 11am - 6pm

“Vessels of Tin Construction, Ghost Planes & The Boys”

By Local Artist Louise Baker

Louise Baker has studied and worked in the arts for fifty years. After completing her degree at Falmouth School of Art and postgraduate DipEd at Newcastle University she taught in Nigeria for ten years, for six of these in the sculpture dept. of Ahmadu Bello University where she was also awarded her M.A. Since returning to the UK she has curated exhibitions and undertaken public art projects in addition to developing her own work .

As an artist she considers herself a watcher, an observer of the minutiae that make up a landscape, a cataloguer of the seen and found, a collector of objects, a recorder of the pathway trod. Relentlessly curious.

Vessels of Tin Construction, Ghost Planes & The Boys

A series of mixed media installations, collage and bookworks reflecting indirectly on family connections over a hundred and four years of war.

This group of work has developed over the last fifteen years but is still not fully resolved. The work is not overtly political, not trying to define the rights or wrongs of it, just that it happened and that the effects of these conflicts will reverberate for a long time.

These courses are designed for students of 14 – 18 who are interested in Art, possibly studying it for GCSE or A level and who would like to expand their knowledge and experience.

We will be making monoprints, collagraphs, etchings and printing over a range of prepared surfaces. Students will also be introduced to working with mixed media and exploring all the expressive possibilities of unusual combinations of surface and colour.

Subjects will be provided, but individual choices may be prompted by GCSE or A level themes and focus. This is a great opportunity to add to the range of work in a portfolio for exams and Foundation portfolios. All materials, papers, painting supports and the use of a press will be provided.

Each session will produce completed work so you can do one or all of the courses.
