We are delighted to confirm that Beckie Upton has joined ‘Flock Together’. Beckie is an emerging artist and recent arts graduate, who will be working with us to document our work via this blog and across social media. Beckie will also engage in research and critical writing around our collaborative practice and encourage dialogue about the project.
Working in partnership with Somerset Art Works, we are delighted to have been able to offer this graduate artist bursary to Beckie who was selected from amongst other strong submissions. We are looking forward to having Beckie’s involvement including assisting in the creation and promotion of the exhibitions in the rural Nissan Hut Barn in July and also at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in September – October. We are very excited about having Beckie on board and are looking forward having her perspective, thoughts, research and documentation here on the blog and in return we hope to offer valuable insight and mentoring.
Beckie joined us yesterday in the Drawing lab at the RWA for our family drop-in sessions and will start posting about this and our other activities soon.
