Working Studio

Last Saturday I attended a talk and discussion at the Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts UEA given by Polly Binns,Rod Bugg and Barbara Taylor. It was quite an interesting and exciting discusssion about the importance of having their working studios at home as well as how the location of your studio can affect our work.Polly and Robb have both been Higer Education Tutors and both said that it was essential to them having their studios at home. It was also fascinating to hear from Barbara who is a curator and has been for many years working intially at Bury St Edmunds Gallery. I also found it particularly interesting to hear how she saw a connection in Polly and Robb's work and brought the two artist together to facilitate a collaboration of their work. In total they were only about 25 - 30 people in the space. I did enjoy the slide presentation and seeing Polly's work in progress. Looking on from the outside I believe that whatever the result is with their collaboration, a book or an exhibition, it will be worth seeing. There is also a Henry Moore Textiles Exhibition on 22June - 29August .

It sounds like it was a fascinating talk.

I too like working from home with my art, however also have the teaching job for bread and butter income outside the home. Art is an extension of ourselves so I suppose having it close to hand and surrounding in a home environment makes sense.
