Studio 36 was open each day during Art Week Exeter. We had many visitors and interesting conversations, including those during our Freedom from Expectation event on the evening of Thursday 24th.
Conversations in Colour, an exhibition showcasing work by the Budding Friends Age UK group that meets at Studio 36 was officially opened by the Deputy Lord Mayor, Kate Hannan, on 4th May. Many guests and artists involved in the project were present. The exhibition at the Front of House Gallery of the Barnfield Theatre ran until 31st May.
The snow did not deter the many who came to the opening of our new gallery on March 18th. We had a full house to enjoy the poetry of James Turner, the music of Ric White, tea, cake, conversation and not least the artwork of Gareth Williams and Gordon Hill.
Our Age UK Budding Friends, gathered each Autumn and Winter week at Studio 36, busily and enthusiastically creating artwork for the Conversations in Colour exhibition, to start at the Barnfield Theatre on 5th May.
As can be seen above, actual conversations within the group were turned into fabulous works of art created by all of the participants.
Further interest and enjoyment was achieved through the involvement of Professor Michael Schillmeier of Exeter University’s Sociology & Philosophy department. He has been taking an ethnographic approach to help to understand and engage with the questions, issues and requirements of the Budding Friends’ everyday life.
