Art studio showing pop-up group exhibit
A group art show has popped up at Mill Street Art Studio featuring the work of seven local artists.
Resident artist Liz Eakins, who shares studio space with Sue Miller and Martha Bull, said space to show art is at a premium.
“Because of Covid and a lack of permanent gallery space, artists are struggling to have their work seen so this is a stop gap measure for us,” said Eakins.
Throughout the summer the gallery will be showing clay sculpture by Frith Bail, watercolours on yupo paper by Martha Bull, photography by Nancy Falconer, clay sculpture by Juliet Jancso, abstract oil paintings by Sue Miller, gouache paintings by Jessica Tamlin and Eakins is showing new work – painting on board in the textural stylings she is known for in her paper art.
“Everybody does something different yet it complements each other,” said Eakins. “As artists in the community we want to support each other by finding ways to bring us together.”
Eakins said Mill Street Art Studio is always open to the public and strives to be a welcoming space.
“It’s just that it’s a little intimidating for people to venture down the alley and up the stairs, even though we are often there working,” she said.
The gallery space hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and also by chance or appointment.
