Window Exhibition: April

Each month our studio window displays the work of one or more of our members. April's window contains two large prints by Rachel Wilcox.

The images are printed from an aluminium plate with a texture of carborundum grit applied. Subsequently, additional colours and textures are layered on top using monoprint techniques. The 'Sea Poem' series comprises twelve unique prints inspired by  vistas of moving water and ever-changing light experienced whilst visiting North-East Scotland.

National Trust Commission

BAP member Dominique Coiffait has been commissioned by the National Trust to create an artwork for their Cotehele property in the Tamar Valley, Cornwall. Part of a scheme called ‘In New Art We Trust’, the finished piece will be exhibited alongside the Cotehele Floral Garland, hung every year in November. The commission helps commemorate the anniversary of the end of the First World War. 

Dominique will be working on the project throughout 2018, making regular visits to the Grade I listed property for research and drawing. He'll also be running workshops with school groups, staff, volunteers and visitors to the estate. Visit here for updates as the project takes shape.
