EartH - discussion meeting

On Friday 18 October, EartH will be holding a discussion meeting at Anglia Ruskin University.

 

More about my AA2A collaboration with Cathy Faithfull next week.

Collaboration

My work focuses on landscape - urban and natural environments.

I recently woke up to the protests that have been inspired by Greta Thunberg and become increasingly conscious of climate change.  I know, a little late in the day but that's the problem with many of us.

With this in mind I have begun a collaboration with fellow artist Cathy Faithfull in order to explore art ideas around this issue.

EartH has just begun - let's see where it takes us.

Cambridge Open Studios 2019 - last weekend

This weekend (20/21 July) will be our final weekend at Rock Road Library Art Space.  We had a rocking weekend last week and this weekend the library has lots of activities planned too.

Just another heads up - at the end of my Cambridge Open Studios I will be donating 10% of my total sales to  my friend's charity the YMPH Foundation.

Founded by Will's parents Anne and Peter the mandate of the YPMH is to help young people enter adulthood with greater resilience to mental health conditions, and thereby reduce the number of young people who take their own lives.

For further information about the Foundation please go to: www.ypmh.org.

I have a browser sale too - just for Open Studios, see you there!

Doors open at my Cambridge Open Studios exhibition at 11 am and close and 6pm.

Emma Bennett Collage, Rebecca Stark and myself will be at The Rock Road Library Art Space on the 13/14 and 20 and 21 July 2019.  We are very grateful to the Friends of Rock Road Library for supporting our Cambridge Open Studios this year.

Cambridge Contemporary Art solo show

The Private Preview for my solo show in May 2019 was buzzing! The Gallery took some lovely photos - take a look here.

Cambridge Open Studios 2019

After a very successful solo show at Cambridge Contemporary Art I am looking forward to the next show - Cambridge Open Studios.

I will be exhibiting at the Rock Road Library Space with Emma Bennett and Rebecca Stark.  To keep up-to-date keep an eye on the Cambridge Open Studios website.

Cambridge Contemporary Art Solo Show

The weekend I completed my Masters in Printmaking in September 2018 I have been busy creating a new body of work for my solo show at Cambridge Contemporary Art.

Thirty nine new solarplate etchings and oil paintings are now finished and are either at the framers of being varnished.

Doors open on 11 May 2019 but I will be sending out Private Preview invitations for Friday 10th May 2019.  Please email me if you would like to attend the event.

Cambridge Science Festival

Cambridge Science Festival

Multiple Sclerosis

On Sunday 17 March 2019 I will be exhibiting work accepted for the What a Nerve exhibition.

I am one of 6 Artists that explore the disease Multiple Sclerosis.

The day-long event brings together stem cell researchers and people affected by MS.

The art exhibition expresses the disease, science and cells through acrylic, glass, paper, paint and sound by artists Kelly Briggs, Elizabeth Fraser, Virginia Mayo, Charlotte Morrison and myself.

Co-ordinated by Liza Reed from Growing Art Partnerships.

John Hughes Arts Festival

On 12 February 2019 the Secret Postcard Art Auction will be taking place.

I was asked to donate artwork to the cause and over the Christmas break I worked on a postcard oil painting and a woodcut etching.

Enjoy looking for them!

For more information please go to the website.

Oils coming along...

I have been very focussed on producing work for my upcoming solo show at Cambridge Contemporary art in May 2019.

I have just been informed that a recent submission for a Cambridge Science Festival exhibition has been accepted for March 2019 so back to the studio....

Judging panel participation

I have recently been involved in several panels judging various art events. Two of my favourites have been the Cambridge Open Art, (an annual art event), and the Liverpool Art Book (image from the Cambridge Art Book is shown here).

Solo Show - Cambridge Contemporary Art

From 11 May - 2 June 2-19 I will be exhibiting at Cambridge Contemporary Art, Trinity St.

This is my first solo show at the Gallery so I am busy working on new canvasses and prints.

The exhibition is titled Cambridge to Coast.

I have always been interested in my personal dialogue with the landscape that surrounds the city where I live.

I grew up in London and while some may find a city lonely, I thrive on the anonymity and comparative privacy that they offer.

I have a utopian vision of the landscape around me, in particular the flatlands that start from Cambridge and finish at the edge of the East Anglia coast. In comparison to this romantic notion of the land that I portray in my oil paintings I produce prints from views of the city that often focus on a solitary figure.

The solo show at Cambridge Contemporary Art in May 2019 will showcase a new body of work that reflect this personal dialogue that I have with my surroundings.

For more information please visit the gallery website.

Completion of MA Fine Art Printmaking

I finally completed my MA in Fine Art Printmaking in September 2018. I received notification in December that I had received a Distinction.

Working for my MA proved to be one of the most challenging times of my life but I am so glad I persevered.

Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale

I cannot believe how the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale has developed since a doorstop conversation with fellow printmaker Anthony Hopkinson in 2013.

 

I am no longer part of the organising team, as I wanted to concentrate on my Masters in Printmaking but I will be showing some of my Cambridge Walkabout range of solarplate etchings that are exclusive to Cambridge Contemporary Art. Doors open at 10.30 on Friday 21 September and continues until Saturday 29 Saturday 2018. At the Pitt Building, opposite Fitzbillies.

MA exhibition

My final MA exhibition at The Cambridge School of Art showcased a new direction for me.

I have been working on installation and woodcut prints for the past eight months. Working in site-specific locations will be something I will be pursuing during the next year.

On the radio...

I was recently interviewed at Cambridge Contemporary Art by Daniel Baker.

Here is the link.

Jo Tunmer in the Cambridge Conversation

Jo Tunmer and has been a professional artist for 11 years. If you’re a regular at Kettle’s Yard you’ll also know her as being an Artist Facilitator and leader of workshops. Jo tells Daniel Baker about her journey.


Shed

Shed is the name for my final Masters in Fine Art Printmaking at Cambridge School of Art.

I have been studying for my MA for the past two years and I will be finishing at the end of September 2018.

Come along to the Preview on Thursday 6th September from 5-8 pm. The exhibition then continues until 13th September 2018. The Ruskin Gallery is at the back of the main building of Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge.

Shed explores recycling, regeneration, the past, the present and the future, and pays architectural homage to this simple ubiquity of suburban living.

MA Printmaking

I am now in my final 2 months of my MA Printmaking studies at Cambridge School of Art.

My work is all about the garden shed.

If you would like to know more about my final project then please do come along to the Private Preview on 6 September. The show will then be up until 13th September.

RIP - Ryan Williams

Ryan Williams was a legend.

A fellow MA friend who inspired us all.

This week we say goodbye, but he will not be forgotten.

RIP mate.
