The Courtyard Arts is a series of Arts events, as part of the broadening scope of the Archiimp Pop Up Gallery Initiative in partnership with nestWorcester, which will take place at the same location on the first Sunday of every month.

The artists being showcased on 2nd December are:

Bic Beaumont Art

After a hiatus after completing my art degree, I got back into artwork after my mother had an amputation a few years ago and wanted a design for a couple of her casts and prosthesis, which led to life drawing classes, which really helped with my confidence and enabled me to exhibit in several local events, which has led to other exhibitions and opportunities further afield. I find painting and photography a way of shutting everything out, just giving myself a bit of time to do something creative and switch off.

I want my artwork to be fun, which is why I use lots of colour and a bit of sparkle in my paintings, using nature and the animals I meet as a source of inspiration.

Sian Hughes – Fine Jewellery

Sian Elizabeth Hughes has been hand making her award winning jewellery in the West Midlands for over 12 years. Sian spent 10 years in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter before relocating to a quiet Worcestershire village.

Sian comments “My designs are inspired by simple natural shapes, colours, forms and texture. I design and make all my pieces by hand, creating wearable but contemporary jewellery that is feminine but elegant”.

She adds “Since my career began I have taken part in exhibitions such as Goldsmiths’ Fair and The Contemporary Craft Fair and have exhibited my work nationally and internationally at venues such as The V&A Museum. I have won awards from Contemporary Applied Arts, New Designers and International Jewellery London. My work is published in several books including; ‘Showcase 500 Rings’ curated by Bruce Metcalf.”

Lenny Ledgerwood – Inky Bunny Prints

Lenny is a Worcester based artist producing hand-printed lino-cut cards and original limited edition prints. She loves to use bold, expressive colours and her subject matter is as erratic as her train of thought! Although Lenny has always trained and worked in the arts industry (originally as a theatrical costume designer and now a teacher of dressmaking and craft courses,) printmaking has only fairly recently become a speciality.

Whilst undergoing a course of chemotherapy in 2017 she took up lino-cut printmaking as a form of therapy to help her through some difficult times. Now, out the other side of her illness, it has become a passion and a compulsion and she’s excited to be improving with each new piece of work and exploring the world of lino-cutting whilst she settles on her own unique style. Her love of travel and kitsch memorabilia influences her limited edition prints, whilst her greetings cards are inspired mostly by nature. Lenny’s hope is that her finished artwork brings as much happiness to her customers as the process of making it does to her.

Jilly Oxlade-Arnott – Architectural Watercolour Artist

Oxlade-Arnott is known for her unique watercolour and fine line ink depictions of historically or nationally significant architecture. She is a Worcester based architectural watercolour artist from a family of draughtsmen, painters, potters and sculptors. Having two distinct styles, a more traditional ‘Classique’ which is bright watercolour with detailed fine line ink whereas ‘Vivid’ is simplistic bold lines on layers of pure vibrant colours, inspired by the pop art genre and is best seen on large scale canvases.

Structure, perception and placement form the focal point of her works, with an emphasis of colour and depth on the subject structure leaving the surrounding detail in contrasting black line work. Oxlade-Arnott is known nationally for her works of Worcester, Malvern and Ludlow and is now gaining great interest from the international collector’s scene for both her classique global and vivid works.

Architecture and its’ appreciation is of importance to Oxlade-Arnott, who commented “Buildings are the foundation of our lives, the interaction we all have with them may be inconsequential but if, once in a while you stop, look up, you’ll be surprised by what you’ve missed and how varied and intricate the urban landscape can really be.”

New Artwork Released Ludlow Castle II

New Artwork Released in the Ludlow Collection 

Ludlow Castle Aspect II, Ludlow England

Ludlow Castle Aspect II

Walter de Lacy, a trusted member of the household of William FitzOsbern arrived in England with the conquering army of William in 1066. FitzOsbern was rewarded for his loyal part in William’s victory with an Earldom over the lands of Hereford.

After three years of local resistance, FitzOsbern was able to claim his Earldom and planned to keep his new acquisition secure by developing a string of castles along the border of England and Wales. To assist in this plan, he followed the model of patronage and favour set by William the Conqueror himself and began to distribute areas of his lands to his trusted men, in order to keep their loyalty and support. Thus, Walter De Lacy, FitzOsbern’s second in command seems to have acquired the lands of South Shropshire and from there, he appears to be linked with the earliest developments around Ludlow Castle. Walter’s sons, first Roger and then Hugh built the earliest surviving parts of the Castle that we can still see today, and the De Lacy family retained lordship until the end of the 13th century.

The Castle Fortress that the De Lacy’s built, occupies a finely judged defensive position. Guarded by both the rivers Teme and Corve, Ludlow Castle stands prominently on high ground, able to resist attack from would be invaders from over the Welsh border.

New Artwork Released Broad Gate

New Artwork Released in the Ludlow Collection 

Broad Gate, Ludlow England

Broad Gate Ludlow

The last survivor of Ludlow’s seven medieval gates, probably completed about 1270. Despite considerable later rebuilding, the original structure of two drum towers flanking a central passage remains. This can be seen from the south side.

On the north side note the 16th to 18th Century house built over the Gate. There are Gothic crenellations and details probably by Pritchard for Dr Samuel Sprott who died in 1760. He has a monument by Prichard in Ludford Church. Note the portcullis groove and arrow slit under the arch. The Gate arch and the drum towers (cf Edward I’s castles in Wales) can be seen from the South elevation.

The West drum tower is now partially obscured by Regency Gothic additions of 1824 – 29.

A4Courtyard Arts 4th Nov Web

The artists being showcased on 4th November are:

Kirsty Protherough – Watercolour Artist

I am interested in the use of colour. Watercolour as a medium is challenging but can produce some beautiful effects unreproducible by oil or acrylic. I am constantly inspired by the flora and fauna of Worcestershire and the changing seasons. Impressionism and the Arts and crafts movement inspire me and I hope this is reflected in my work.

My originals  are painted using artist quality Winson and Newton paint on fine art quality watercolour paper (Arches Rough 300lb – 600lb).

Prints are made using fine art pigment inks and fine art archival grade paper (Hahnemuhle Torchon 285gsm). I also do commissions.

Deb Stanley, CPCAS of Deb Stanley Art – Coloured Pencils & Pastels

Deb is a Malvern based artist specialised in creating highly detailed, realistic artworks using artist quality coloured pencils and pastels.  Her work covers a variety of subjects and is currently focused on big cats, one receiving the David Shepherd Award at Nature in Art 2018. Deb has recently been awarded Signature Status by The Coloured Pencil Community of Australasia.

Sarah & Chris Greening Glass/Pottery

Sarah fuses coloured glass pieces with some chemistry in a kiln to make unique contemporary fused glass jewellery pieces which she sells in shops, galleries and craft markets. She lives and works in Worcester where she also runs glass fusing taster classes.

Chris creates a wide range of functional slipware pottery for modern living. His pieces are decorated with coloured liquid clay (slip) which provides a fantastic fluid palette to explore the patterns that nature produces, particularly in marine geomorphology, such as the drawing back of silt by the waves on a sandy shoreline.

New Artwork Released Readers House

New Artwork Released in the Ludlow Collection 

Readers House, Ludlow England

Readers House Ludlow

The Reader’s House is a late medieval stone building owned by the Palmer’s Guild and housing the Grammar School in the late 15th Century.

Originally entered from the Bull Ring, it was leased to Thomas Kay, the Chaplain to the Council of the Marches, who made a new entrance from the Churchyard in 1616, adding the fine timber framed porch. Note the details of the carving of woodwork – typical of early 17th Century Ludlow carpentry.

7th October Promo

The artists being showcased on 7th October are:

Sasha Louise Rae – Screen Print & Print Maker

I live and work in the shadow of the beautiful Malvern Hills, a place which gives me constant inspiration. I make bold and lively prints of birds, animals, insects and natural forms using simplified images to express character and movement.  Each of my designs begins as a series of sketches which experiment with different postures, arriving at a final image which I feel best captures a sense of the individual’s mannerisms and personality. In addition to my range of framed hand screen-printed artwork, I make cushions and other functional yet decorative items from beautifully soft natural linen, hand printed in environmentally friendly inks with my spirited and colourful designs.

Artworks flying out at Croome Court

Vivid Artwork’s are flying off the wall at Croome Court

The Pop Art Inspired vivid works by Jilly Oxlade-Arnott are a huge success at The National Trust’s Croome Court this year. 

Auction bids are placed on new works as soon as they go up, with eager buyers having to wait until the end of the month to see if they have been successful

A buyer from New Zealand purchased three original canvasses of London in one go!

Every Worcester Cathedral image has been sold within a week of display, although not to everyone taste this just proves that the Vivid Range is gaining momentum and attracting a considerable fan base.

This is looking very positive ahead of the launch of Jilly’s Vivid Range in October. 

The preview of the Vivid launch was a single installation of 132 images of Worcester Cathedral at the Hive (Colour at Play Exhibition) which proved extremely popular and even heralded calls for it to be kept and owned by the City. 

 

 

A little Lea & Perrins story…

I love it when art brings people together

Dear Jilly,

I recently ordered your artwork from Etsy of the Lea and Perrins greeting card. I thought you might enjoy hearing my “story” of why this particular artwork has significance for me.

A dear friend of mine and I were talking one day about our family
histories. She told me that her great-grandmother’s uncle is Mr. Perrins of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. I am also of the Perrins lineage. My grandfather was Arthur Perrins.

I was thrilled to discover my friend was not just my friend, but my cousin, too!

When your card arrives, I plan on framing it as a gift to my friend/cousin. Thank you for your painting that holds such significance to us!

Sincerely,

Mrs DPC, California, United States of America

September Pop Up

Visitors loved the true gallery style pop up displaying works from 15 different artists

 

The September Archiimp Pop Up Gallery on the 15th & 16th was slightly different from the other pop ups, as it employed a true gallery style approach of displaying a couple of works from 14 artists and a special feature on one particular artist. 

 

Over the 2 days we had over 270 adult visitors and more than 30 children all enjoying the works on display. The artist information cards proved incredibly popular with some potential for follow on sales.

 

Visitor feedback was excellent with many visitors showing a keen interest in future events and full of praise for increasing the awareness of arts and artists in Worcester.

Contacts were also made with new artists that would like to be part of the Archiimp Pop Up Gallery Initiative and several bookings were made.

 

 

Julie Robertson Special Feature

Archiimp Pop Up Gallery on 15th & 16th September presents a special feature of works for sale by:

Julie Robertson MA

Multidisciplinary Artist (2D, 3D and Photography)

Julie Robertson Image

Julie Robertson is a Midlands based artist, always looking for new ideas and means of expression.

She thoroughly enjoys immersing herself in contemporary fine art during her recent study in Birmingham at Margaret Street School of Art, where she achieved her MA.

They say that life imitates art and vice versa, and this is particularly true of Julie’s work over the past 12 years shown here as the ‘Her Story’ Collection.

Her work has inevitably developed over time. After achieving her BA in 2006, ‘Cheshire Cat’ and ‘Graduation’ express the sheer joy of completing that lifelong goal. Post-graduation, her work came from an outward looking view developed through travel. ‘Out of the Blue’ and ‘In the Pink’ were inspired by trips to the Blue Caves in Zakynthos and ‘Lemons’, ‘Platter’ and ‘Vase’ came from time spent in Varese near Lake Garda.

As Julie matured, her focus has developed. In 2011, her mother-in-law was becoming increasingly ill at the age of 89, and even with the best efforts of the family, it struck me how lonely life can be for the elderly. ‘Undiscovered’ – the world goes on around her, as she sits waiting.

Inspired by Marion Wallace-Dunlop who was an artist and a key player in the Suffragette movement – the first suffragette to be force-fed. ‘The Artist’s Coat’ recognises and indeed celebrates the 100th Anniversary of some women getting the vote, – and is created in the Suffragette colours of purple for loyalty and dignity, white for purity and public life, and green for hope.

Julie’s latest work ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘Fluxus’ are about the random interconnections, interruptions or disruptions that shape our lives and reflect the latter part of her study in 2015/2016 which was influenced by joining in group study of Philosophy with Professor Johnny Golding and has underpinned her post MA work.

Open to the public from 10am to 5pm and both days at 16 Foregate, Street, The Hopmarket, WR1 1DL

The Worcester Music Festival itself: 

The Festival

Worcester Music Festival – a metropolitan festival supporting emerging artists and raising money for charity – returns for the eleventh consecutive year from
September 14-16, 2018.

The festival takes place in more than 20 venues in Worcester City Centre, hosting around 250 bands over 3 days as well as a number of workshops.

A non-profit making event, it is run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers who all give their time for free to support live music, encourage new audiences to visit new venues and help to make live music accessible to more people.

With live music across the city, from pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes to historic buildings, record shops, on the streets and even in breweries, the festival is absolutely FREE to attend. Our team of promoters put on hundreds of gigs, showcasing some of the best, new and emerging artists in the UK.

The festival also delivers free music-related workshops for the whole community. Adults and children can take part in everything from drum clinics and Q&As with industry experts to learning an instrument or singing in a pop choir. Amateur photographers of any age or experience can also enter the annual photography competition.

Almost £50,000 has been raised for charity by the festival in its eleven year history and the 2018 charity is Worcestershire Association of Carers.

The Music

There is a thriving live music scene in Worcester, which is why the festival was born in the first place. It attracts new audiences and gives music lovers the opportunity to discover new talent. Showcasing every genre imaginable – from rock, indie, metal, punk, psychedelic, pop and DJs to folk, jazz, blues, reggae, hip hop, country and acoustic acts – the festival has evolved to become a beacon for some of the best new and underground acts from across the UK.

Bands that have played our festival include Peace, God Damn, Das Sexy Clap, Jon Gomm, Xova, Virgil and the Accelerators, Jason Bowld, This Wicked Tongue, Nigel Clark, Guthrie Govan, The Stiff Joints, No Cars and many, many more.

With almost 1,000 bands and artists applying for a slot at each festival (around 200 slots are available over the three days), the 2018 line-up promises to be even better than ever and organisers are looking forward to showcasing a host of exciting, new acts.

The Charity

Since it began in 2008, festival-goers have generously donated almost £50,000 to 16 local charities.

The 2018 Festival will fundraise for Worcestershire Association of Carers. Wristbands and other merchandise will be available, along with collection buckets in every venue. Also, a team of fancy dress-clad charity collectors will roam the venues over the weekend with collection buckets. Every gig is free entry but audiences will be asked to dig deep to donate to this worthy cause.

The Fans

Tempted to check the festival out? Here’s what our fans say…

“Worcester Music Festival is live music by the people, for the people. With incredible line-ups and amazing events in venues scattered around this historic city, it should be in every music festival-goer’s diary.”
– Jon Gomm

“If you want to live, eat and breathe all kinds of music over a single weekend, Worcester Music Festival is for you. It’s a one-of-a-kind festival experience, an incredible ecosphere of live music.”
– Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter, PWEI, Killing Joke, Axewound, Bill Bailey)

“This is a great festival with an amazing amount of artists giving up their time for free. It’s a chance to spend the weekend exploring a wide range of musical creativity, while taking in the many splendours of the city.”
– Nigel Clark (Dodgy)

Worcestershire Association of Carers Website

Worcestershire Association of Carers offers both practical and emotional support for carers, who are working with a wide variety of disabled individuals, and aims to identify carers whilst raising awareness of their responsibilities within the wider community. This support can help combat isolation and ensure the carers needs are met alongside the needs of those they are caring for. The charity helpline educates carers about financial entitlements, respite opportunities, understanding the needs of the person they are caring for and so much more.

Established in 1997, the charity recognises the importance, value and significance of the thousands of unpaid adults carers all over the county. At some point during their lifetime, 3 in 5 people will work as an unpaid carer and the charity seeks to acknowledge the magnitude of the work of adult unpaid carers, offering them support to meet their needs and giving them a voice to allow them to influence the policy making and service planning that affects their lives.

Carol Cumino, CEO of Worcestershire Association of Carers acknowledges the “important and uplifting” effect that music can have on individuals and its ability to enhance wellbeing. The charity will use some of the money raised by WMF to organise a carer choir to harness those effects.

Worcester Music Festival is proud to support such an incredibly worthwhile cause and hopes that you will dig deep into your pockets when you see our fundraisers, or purchase a charity wristband to show your support.

Fabella’s Poems 3 of 3 Foundation

Fabella – A Giraffe with a tale

Poem 3 of 3 – Foundation

The last poem to adorn Fabella was inspired by the foundation of the City of Worcester, from its origin as a humble river crossing to the varied and vast cityscape we see today, narrated by the buildings themselves, as they need us as much as we need them. 

‘Foundation’

From deep in the earth our feet are found
Brick by brick born rising from the ground
Slowly we appear reaching for the sky
Some short, some tall and majestically high

Elaborate and grand or simple and small
Bathe in our beauty, every face every wall
Come in and shelter from the weather outside
Shop, work or relax we will abide

We’ll never learn to walk but stay we must
Look after us, please lest we’ll crumble to dust
Take pride in our being to be enjoyed by all
For we are your foundation, Worcester Stands Tall

Fabellas Poems 2 of 3 The Battle

Fabella – A Giraffe with a tale

Poem 2 of 3 – The Battle

This side of Fabella has line work depicting the Commandery, which is known amongst other things for its connection to the Civil War and the poem tells of the story of the Battle of Worcester. 

The Battle of Worcester was the final battle of the English Civil War on 3rd September 1651, where Oliver Cromwell’s Parliamentarian New Model Army, some 28,000 strong, defeated King Charles II’s 16,000 Royalists.

‘The Battle’

Royalists and Parliamentarians battled hard
In the Civil war of Worcesters’ back yard
Charles watched from the Cathedral tower
Defending attack and displaying his power
Driven back towards the city, a final charge in Sidbury

Charles escaped through St. Martin’s Gate
Royalists fled and could not wait
Most were captured the following day
3000 died in this fierce affray

Fabella’s Poems 1 of 3 The Pear

Fabella – A Giraffe with a tale

Poem 1 of 3 – The Pear

The front of Fabella is surrounded by pears and proudly shows off  the Worcester Coat of Arms. 

Tradition has it, that it was during the visit of Queen Elizabeth I to Worcester in 1575 that Worcester acquired its second coat of arms featuring the black pear. It is said that during her procession through the streets of Worcester the Queen saw a pear tree which had been planted in the Foregate in her honour. She was so pleased at the appropriateness of the tree growing right in the heart of a fruit growing region, that she ordered the city add the emblem of pears to its Coat of Arms. 

How fitting that Fabella should be placed at Foregate!!

‘The Pear’

The Romans brought us the pear
Unique in its’ colour, very rare
It was fed to the troops at Agincourt
Adorning bowman’s banners during the war

Grown at the Abbey by the monks
Trees heavy with fruit from tip to trunks
Queen Elizabeth so admiring of the tree
Ordering three pears was her decree
to be part of the coat and to this day
the arms grace our city in a wonderful way

Rave reviews!

Hive installation getting rave reviews and calls for action!! 

The “Colour at Play Exhibition” at the Hive is getting a great response.

The 7 meter installation of 132 individual Worcester Cathedral images, with each image different to the next and no two images the same, has been receiving a huge amount of admiration.

People have been calling for the installation to be acquired by the city as a permanent feature in the hive or to be located in another public space within the city.

Local private individuals have said that they would be happy to contribute towards the cost of the installation in order to keep it in public hands.

Mr B commented, “I think this its so bright and vibrant, it makes me happy just looking at it. I have sat and looked at it for many hours and I really wish it could stay. This is a wonderfully colourful celebration of Worcester and it should stay where the public can see it.”

Miss S wrote, “Worcester needs something like this, what a great expression of colour and joy. It took me aback when I first saw it, what power and presence.”

The installation is only here until Thursday 6th September so make sure you pop into the Hive Cafe to see it while you can.

This installation is available to purchase as a whole or in parts, for more information please contact Chris on 07713 055 999 or email chris@architecturalimpressions.uk.

 

The poems of WST’s Fabella

Poems to be released

For those who wish to know the poems of Fabella – The Giraffe with a tale, I will be releasing the wording over the next 3 days, one poem per day. (Pear, Battle and Foundation).

I am starting to include more poetry to accompany my drawn artwork as its seems to be received well and I love the simplicity and rhythm.

A number of impromptu poetry performances at Jilly’s open gallery during the Worcestershire Open Studios by Suz Winspear, led to further discussions and the planning of additional co-operation between poets and artists. So watch this space…

Love Jilly

Fabella was designed and created by Jilly Oxlade-Arnott, is sponsored by The Worcester City Council and was brought to the streets of Worcester by Wild in Art in aid of the St.Richards Hospice for the Build 2020 Appeal and has been protected by citizens of Worcester and the boys and girls of British Transport Police 3 Counties.

WOS 2018 Review

Worcestershire Open Studios 2018 for Jilly @ Archiimp

Due to the weather visitor numbers were down on last year but those who came dug deeper than before and purchased more than ever.

 

A very special thank you to those who took time out of their August Bank Holiday to visit us and to our location partners, Keith and Zoe of Henley McKay Kitchens for giving us such a lovely space and making the event possible.

 

Our Pop Up Gallery and Events Dates section was a huge talking point with many people signing up to receive future event dates and Blog notices. We had plenty of discussions on how to get greater awareness and reach a wider audience and the initiatives were very strongly supported and welcomed by all – Thank you.

WOS 2018 9
For more information on artist opportunities please email Chris at chris@architecturalimpressions.uk or call 07713 055 999

This year we had a mini display from a guest artist – Chris Greening (pottery) which added synergy to the WOS as a whole, showed linkage with other local artists and provided a great complimentary visitor experience. Something we will employ again next year.

Our Worcester Stands Tall display also generated great interest and wonderful talking point with giraffe lovers. 

 

Unfortunately we were unable to take photographs during the busy visitor periods (by its very nature) but despite the spacious location it was surprising how quickly it filled up – maybe helped by the Kir Royals!

The must see Colour at Play Installation

New Micro Exhibition at the Hive 

Jilly launches new micro exhibition at the Hive, Worcester (Cafe Walls) entitled

Colour at Play 

Jilly comments on the installation “This exhibition explores the colour palette. Colour is everywhere in our lives and influences us daily. From the prominence of a brand, ‘Ferrari red’ to which shade of shoe we buy, we make choices with colour in mind. Do the colours collide, co-ordinate, interact or blend? How do they may us feel?”

Hive Exbo 1The single installation is made up of 132 individual pieces, depicting the vivid pop art inspired version of Worcester Cathedral in different colour ways, each piece is unique with no two pieces being the same.

Laid out over the entire wall, the installation is 7 meters long and almost 2 meters high, creating a dramatic, bright and bold spread of colour.

A must see exhibition as it’s only on for a few weeks (closes 6th September) so make sure you pop down to the Hive to see it while you can!
