Our science-related Sunday was uproarious in parts with Richard Robinson making custard dance – indeed writhe and rear. In the meantime people were able to look at the truly lovely art on display, and artists showed or explained techniques, materials and inspirations with scientific connotations.
This coming weekend: Green Sunday. Kay Sexton will be reading from her witty and wise new book on allotments, John Collins showing his woodturning skills and Jane Napp how she restores and recycles old furniture. Judith Berrill has constructed a special ‘our street’ map for us, and the Garden House will be selling their seeds in pretty packets. All this in addition to the beautiful work on display in the house and garden till Bank Holiday Monday. Jewellery, painting, metalwork, sculpture, prints, photos, cards….
This coming Sunday, 15 May, is Science Sunday at the Wolf at the Door (Artists’ Open House). Richard Robinson, puppeteer and brain behind the wonderful Brighton Science Festival, is going to entertain and instruct us on silver and gold, the history of glass, paints and pigments and…dancing custard. Artists will also be trying to explain some of the science behind their work. Quite a lot of my own work is in one way or another science-inspired. So here’s a new anthropology-related piece from my ‘Origins’ series.
Only a week to go till the the 2011 Artists’ Open Houses, part of the Brighton Festival. The Wolf is opening again with some old faces, some new: painting, mixed media, sculpture, anodised metalwork, jewellery, photography, work with recycled materials – and some special events. Another post will follow shortly – truly!
