Join us to welcome artists Georgina Lewis and Alice Clough to Arts Lab. This open studio event is a chance to meet them and discuss the ideas and work they hope to develop in the Arts Lab studio this summer.

Georgina Lewis has recently completed her BA in Painting, Drawing and Printmaking at Plymouth College of Art. As the successful recipient of the 2019 Arts Lab Graduate Residency Award, she is currently based at the Lab 2 days a week as ‘open studio’ space welcoming the public to observe and ask questions while she showcases her experiments and processes. ‘This is a fantastic opportunity to push further with my ideas and communicate with the public. The space allows for my practice to breath and reach further into the understanding of the “painted surface” and dialogue through painting. I want to encourage public conversation and learning through the open studio. In turn this will create a wider discussion around the benefits and the need for experimentation in painting.

Alice Clough is Arts Lab’s Summer 2019 ‘Experimenter’. She has a background in archaeology and anthropology which informs her practice as an artist. Her work explores how materials and objects become entangled with social and cultural events, with an interest in articulating origin stories and excavating meaning. Alice has chosen to spend some of her time at the Lab working alongside Georgina, our graduate resident, to share ideas and potentially develop a collaborative project. ‘This is a wonderful opportunity for me to explore social and community engagement with my work and to have space to experiment and share what I am doing. Arts Lab is a fantastic project that I hope to support through my work here.’
