A very busy July!

What an amazing July 2016.

Cambridge Open Studios saw us greet 650 independent-arts interested people through the doors in the two weekends we were open. A record number so many thanks to everyone who came along.

My Cambridge Walkabout etchings that were in the window at Cambridge Contemporary Art, Trinity Street  all sold out with deposits taken for etchings yet completed.

 

 

I was also on the radio with the BBC show with Jeremy Sallis with fellow Printmaker Nina Sage and then on the tele with BBC Look East with fellow Painter Jane Evans promoting Cambridge Open Studios two weeks ago.

Now onto an even busier September with Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale!

BBC Cambridgeshire 4 July

I will be on the radio today with BBC's Jeremy Sallis at 2pm today Monday, 4 July.

I will be with Nina Sage talking about the long-established Cambridge Open Studios that happens every July.

Independent-Cambridge write up

I was given a lovely write up by independent-cambridge last week.


New colourways of Cambridge

"One of our favourite local artists Jo Tunmer, has just completed some new colourways from her 'Tale of Two Cities' range of prints, which will be featured in the summer exhibition from 25 June until 29 August at Cambridge Contemporary Art. Depicting scenes of city life, these gorgeous solar plate etchings have been made even more special with details of silver leaf within them. This range by Jo is exclusive to the Gallery and you can see more of her work here."

New colourways of work at CCA

I have just completed some new colourways of A3 solarplates from my Tale of Two Cities range that are exclusive to Cambridge Contemporary Art.

They will be ready for the summer exhibition from 25 June until 29 August.

It's all about print...

This year I have been focusing entirely on printmaking.

My solarplate etchings are sold at Cambridge Contemporary Art and the Rachel Dormor Gallery and later in the year I will have a small selection at the VK Gallery.

As one of the founders and organisers of the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale event I have been busy preparing for this independently-run exhibition and I am hoping to have six new landscape solarplate etchings on show. For more information about the show please go to www.cambridgeoriginalprintmakers.com

Year 8 Printmaking

Recently I was asked to work with some year 8 students at Chesterton Community College, Cambridge.  The class  had been looking at Oaxacan woodcarvings so I went along to teach them how to create a lino print.

The students explored a range of Oaxacan patterns and designed their own plate. They worked so hard and they then went on to produce some beautiful prints.

Running with Brushes at The Plough

For two evenings in April you will be able to come along and participate in an unique fundraising event.

The ticket price is £20, plus processing fee, and that includes a £15 art voucher that you can use towards a postcard sized artwork or as part payment for larger works on display.

I am exhibiting a few oil paintings in the Gallery space at The Plough, Shepreth during this event.

All proceeds will be going to Care for Casualties - a Charity very close to the organisers heart as her son Nic is a serving member of the Army.

I have known Nic since he was a chirpy, cheeky blond-haired 6 year old.  I have watched him grow into a man and become a fine team player within his chosen career.   I am taking part in this exhibition for him.

To purchase tickets please go to the Eventbrite booking system here. I look forward to seeing you there!

Solarplate workshops

I have a few places left on my solarplate workshops in April and May.  Please go here to book.

Glimpses

I am currently printing some new colourways of my Glimpses range.  However some of the prints are nearly out of the edition of 25.  The new colours will be released at the Country Living Fair in March then afterwards at the Rachel Dormor Gallery.

Driving hard:-)

A few weeks ago my hard drive went on my computer and it seems it will cost a fortune to retrieve.  I am currently in the process of recovering as much date as I can.  I hope to release a few new teaching dates very soon.

In the meantime, here is a new colourway of Twittering.
