Diverse Artists Response Work
Cumbrian Art: Picturing Places was a wide-ranging exhibition focusing on Cumbria’s rich artistic heritage represented in Tullie House Museum’s extensive collection of Cumbrian art. It featured specific places depicted by nationally recognised artists from past and present, including Carlisle, the Lake District, Cumbria and further afield.
Funded by Arts Council England and Tullie House, four diverse artists were supported by Prism Arts to create their own unique responses to this wide ranging and inspiring exhibition. Noreen Care, Mark Greener, Rosie Thompson and Harvey Tye have each took a different approach and produced work that is highly personal and original and which shows an intuitive understanding of the creative process.
The artists all enjoyed the opportunity to engage with the works in the exhibition and explore them in their own unique ways using both new and familiar techniques. They hoped that their responses to this exciting exhibition would encourage visitors to look with fresh eyes at the show and hopefully discover something new.
The finished works were exhibited at Tullie House from the 13th April – 5th June 2016, £ 3.30/FREE for 18’s & under, more information can be found here.
