Last few traces…

Three of Brian’s pieces in the Traces of Prehistory exhibition

Next week will be the final week of our exhibition in Andover – but what a week it promises to be!

Today is the Andover Shilling Fair (which sounds like fun), and the museum, which is normally closed on Sundays, is open today, so that’s an extra day to see the exhibition (if the rest of the attractions don’t hold you too long).

And from Tuesday to Friday, the museum is holding a “Week of Archaeology” (they aren’t open on Mondays). The museum staff and the artists were all delighted at the serendipty of the timing, as our exhibition fits quite nicely with the theme (especially as it includes Brian’s studies of finds from the collection of the West Berkshire Museum).

The art in Artikinesis’ new exhibition is a response to prehistoric man’s influence on today’s landscape, and a reflection on our relationship with the distant past. Mysterious stone circles, intriguing barrows, exhilarating hill forts and illuminating finds: the essence of history, of human hopes and fears over the years.

We hope that you enjoy the exhibition and that you find beauty and value in our work.

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.

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.

Our new project

We may have been a bit quiet lately, but we’ve been busy. And now, it is time to unveil…

The Artikinesis Art Colouring Book

GOOD3

(Volume 1: West Berkshire and North Hampshire)

There are a few things left to do on this project – a few drawings still, but the main thing is that it costs money to print things like colouring books. We’ve found a local printer who can do the job to our high specification, and now we just need to find the cash…

This is where Kickstarter comes in.

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website. Somebody comes up with what they think is a fantastic creative idea, posts it on Kickstarter, and hopefully several other people find out about it and, if they like it, they might want to help by pledging some money towards getting the project going. They might do this just because they like it, but there is often an incentive – a reward – offered, such as a signed copy of a colouring book, say…

And if enough people pledge enough money towards the project, it will happen, and the rewards will happen,  and everybody will be happy.

That’s how we hope it’s going to work for us. If the project gets its required funding, we will publish the book on 30th April 2016, the first day of the West Berkshire and North Hampshire Open Studios. The signed copies (and the other special rewards) will get posted before then, but the books will be on sale in Rosemary’s studio in Newbury, Adeliza and Elinor’s studio in Tadley, Amanda’s studio in Kingsclere, and a few other select outlets.
