The Basingstoke Project 2017

Artikinesis’ Basingstoke Project is currently on display upstairs at the Willis Museum in Basingstoke. We are sharing the building with Hampshire Cultural Trust’s Turner and the Sun touring exhibition (downstairs) until the 16th of December, so you might want to allocate a little extra time in order to catch both exhibitions.

 

Our colouring book on display in the tall cabinet, along with a lino print based on an opportunistic sketch.

Tues to Friday, 10:00 to 17:00

New Artikinesis exhibition featuring churches and the canal

bohSome new Artikinesis artworks can be seen at St Nicolas church in Newbury tomorrow (Tuesday 6 June) 9:30 a.m. until Friday at 3:30 pm (exhibition closed between 1:30 and 3 p.m. on Wednesday).  Church buildings have long held a fascination for Brian and Amanda, and are a perennial feature of their work.  Adeliza, Elinor and Rosemary have created some new works especially for this exhibition which features local churches and the canal to coincide with a visit to Newbury by the Boats of Hope who make it their mission to bring communities together.  This is a great opportunity to take a tour of the bell tower at St Nic’s and get a unique view over the town.  First come, first served for tower tours on Tuesday 6 June; 10.00am / Noon  and at 2.00pm.  Limited availability.  The art exhibition is free to visit and we will be running a children’s art competition, displaying the winning artworks on the final day and with our very special colouring book as prizes.

We would like to thank St Nicolas’ church for their generosity for lending us the space for this exhibition and for their helpfulness throughout.

Newbury Weekly News: Lin Wilkinson Review of Springtime Exhibition at West Berkshire Museum, pub. 6 April 2017

This week’s Newbury Weekly News (April 6, 2017) carries a review of the Artikinesis Springtime exhibition, written by Lin Wilkinson. She describes it as a “vibrant group show” and goes on to pick out several works. The review is on page 37 of the newspaper and is included in our Press Cuttings section (edited April 14, 2017).

Springtime exhibition at West Berkshire Museum, Newbury Wharf

Our Springtime exhibition for the West Berkshire Museum focuses on the area of West Berkshire and North Hampshire, and the events happening right now in Spring 2017. Nature is active with the emergence of new spring light, the bluebells in Wolverton woods or the circling of the red kite in the skies above our heads. We humans are busy too, with the construction of new homes at Newbury Racecourse or the demolition of the landmark Sterling Cables site, or the gruelling annual Devizes to Westminster canoe race, due to happen along the Kennet and Avon Canal and on to the River Thames once more this Easter.

Do come and look at the Artikinesis Springtime exhibition.  Starts 29th March and continues until 23rd April.  Every day except Mondays and Tuesdays.

In time for Christmas – the Artikinesis art colouring book West Berkshire and North Hampshire is now available to purchase on Amazon

We have stocks of the Artikinesis art colouring book now available on Amazon – an art book, a colouring book, and a book of discovery.  To secure your copy, visit The Artikinesis Art Colouring Book at Amazon

Bookface Bookender at the Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading continues Sunday 9 October, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Today Artikinesis took some of our remaining colouring and poetry books to the Bookface Bookender artists’ handmade book fair in Reading where our contributions were admired by many. There was indeed much to admire at all the stalls with some exquisite handmade books. Those of particular note, in my opinion, were ones that explored the relationship between art and science. The Rising Sun arts centre is at 30 Silver Street, Reading RG1 2ST, and is full of life and has a wonderful welcoming atmosphere with plenty going on including bookbinding workshops upstairs during the book fair. If you missed the book fair there is still chance to visit it tomorrow between 11 and 5pm though sadly Artikinesis will not be there tomorrow. You can still obtain a copy of either our colouring book or our beautiful hand-printed, hand-bound poetry book by contacting us through this website. Every one is a unique work of art in itself, or so say our happy customers.
