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.

Silent Study

A Shadow of Kings

Sighs of Cambridge

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.

Woodland Path

Standing Proud

Always A Winner

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.

 

Twittering to CCA

Cambridge Contemporary Art in Trinity Street have a selection of etchings from my latest solarplate collection - 'Twittering'. You will find them in the browser at the back of the Gallery.  Please do ask to see the entire range.

Time for a natter?

I have a limited edition range of mugs on sale.  The most popular has been 'Nothing like a good Twitter....'

Please email me jo@jotunmer.com to purchase. £13.00 each.

Cambridge Showcase 2015

This year I have been working on lots of new ideas. I now teach private and corporate team building workshops in solarplate etching and linocuts and private one to one oil painting lessons. I have a new product range; bags, mirrors, bottle openers, box sets of cards, gift vouchers alongside original solarplate etchings from my new Twittering range. Go to the Cambridge Showcase website for more info.  I will also be talking about Cambridge Showcase on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire with Illustrator Amanda Hall on Monday 16 November from 2pm with Jeremy Sallis.

When: Monday 23 November 2015. 12 noon until 8.30pm. Where: Unitarian Church Hall, Victoria St, Cambridge CB1 1JW. Who: 15 designer-makers. What: Prints, ceramics, glass, children's books, textiles, jewellery.

When the light starts to fade the hall comes into it's own so drop in after work with your friends and partners and join us to celebrate the independent makers in Cambridge. Donations for the mulled cider and mince pies this year will be going to the allotment project to the Cambridge Cyrenians who work their magic with the homeless in Cambridge.

I look forward to seeing you all at my last public show of 2015. Many thanks for your continued support, Jo.

Finally I would like to say to one of my favourite cities in the world - #VivaLaParis.
