Learning Curves – a free talk about the exhibition
Tue 22 November 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT
A talk linked to the exhibition of fine art ceramics by Jan Byrne and paintings by Mark Thomas showing at BRLSI from 19 November until 1 December.
Come and listen to both artists discuss what inspires their creativity and process during their exhibition.
Jan Byrne’s work is mainly ceramic with many layers of decoration. In her talk she will explain how her pieces of fine art tell stories or represent thoughts, feelings or ideas that are personal to her or that are part of our collective experience.
Mark Thomas will talk about his practical approach to painting, how he works in the studio, what influences and inspires him and what motivates him to continue to make paintings. His artworks are a mix of figurative and abstract. He works primarily in acrylics on paper or canvas because the rapid drying time suits his working style, allowing more immediate changes to images, colour and surface. He lives in Bath but works in splendid isolation in a remote valley in mid Wales. “I like the idea of creating something out of nothing. I want to make something beautiful and engaging, something that makes me feel a better person”.
This talk is FREE, no booking required.
