Wood engraving

I have just completed a three day course on wood engraving with Chris Daunt at Sue Jone's studio in Wimbish. I have come away from the course a convert but I have a lot to learn.

Cambridge Open Studios 2021

What a great first weekend at Cambridge Open Studios!

Thank you to everyone who came along. It was much appreciated.

I am open again on Sat 10th and Sunday 11th July from 11 until 6pm.

See you then.

New colourways at Cambridge Contemporary Art

This week I will be delivering some new colourways of some of my Cambridge prints that have been out of stock for a while to Cambridge Contemporary Art in Trinity Street.

They will be on line at some point but if you are in Cambridge do drop by and take a look.

Cambridge Open Studios

I am so looking forward to opening my studios during the first two weekends of July.

Cambridge Open Studios has always been a delight for me.  It is a great opportunity to talk to customers and discuss art in general.  This year I have launched a new series of small oils on wood panels.  Some of these will be going to Cambridge Contemporary Art.

I will be open on the 3/4th and 10/11th July. See you then.

Cambridge Independent

Thank you to Cambridge Independent who asked to interview me last week. Here is the article.

Sheltered

I have been working on lots of new small oil paintings during the past two months. They will be launched at my Cambridge Open Studios during the first two weeks of July.

It is heart-warming to think of opening up the studio doors again for visitors. Open Studios is one event that I love as it provides me with the opportunity to talk about my artwork and what drives me to continue to be a professional artist.

All about sheds

I have always had a thing about sheds. They are noble, whatever the condition. My new work will include a series of 'shed work' on wood panels.

Landscape exhibition at Cambridge Contemporary Art

I have 6 oils on canvas on display at the new landscape exhibition from 27 February 2021 at Cambridge Contemporary Art. One has sold before the opening of the show but there are still 5 to choose from!

Silence at CCA

I have been enjoying painting again during the last 6 months. Covid-19 stopped us all in our tracks and I have responded by depicting scenes from the coast - where I long to be!

Some of the new oils will be available to purchase from Cambridge Contemporary Art from February 27th 2021.

Please do get in contact and tell me what you think of my new collection.

New oils at Cambridge Contemporary Art

A collection of new oil paintings will be available to purchase from Cambridge Contemporary Art from 27 February 2021.

2020 saw us all curtailing our travels due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This series of paintings pays homage to the places I did manage to visit during this tumultuous year.

New work for the summer 2021

I am currently working on a new range of small oils on wood panels. They will be launched at during Cambridge Open Studios 2021. The collection returns to my love of the humble garden shed.

Cambridge Open Windows 2020

Due to Cambridge Open Studios being cancelled many members have been taking part in Cambridge Open Windows.

Each week I have been displaying work outside on my front drive. It has been lovely to interact with people who have come along to appreciate a wee bit of normality.

Last weekend coming up 25/26 July. Come along and say hello.

Print this City

I have spent the last couple of months developing a range of work that I have wanted to do for several years.

I am a city dweller, originally from London but now living in Cambridge UK.

This new range will incorporate my favourite cities.  I have began with Cambridge and New York.

I will be showcasing them for the first time in my windows during every weekend in July 2020. Thereafter you will be able to purchase them online or through Cambridge Contemporary Art.

woodcut printmaking

I've been experimenting with woodcut printmaking again this past week. I remember a wood engraving class I attended at Edinbrurgh Printmakers a few years ago with Angie Lewin. Angie said 'protect your blacks'.

Still work in progress.

 

 

Milton Road Library talk

In June 2020 I will be hosting a zoom talk with my fellow  collaborative artist Cathy Faithfull.  This is a brief description of what will be discussing.

"Artists Jo Tunmer and Cathy Faithfull met whilst undertaking their MA at Cambridge School of Art. On completion of their degrees the passion they shared for the changing landscape spurred them on to work collaboratively under the name ‘eARTh’. They use recycled materials to open up new dialogues that are primarily focused on climate change issues. Their current enquiry repurposes clocks and jigsaw pieces that illustrate the need for action and how time is of the essence in this climate emergency.

So much of the resistance to mitigating climate change has come from those who insist that 'society is hard to change'. The global response to this current pandemic has shown that this is actually not true. Huge changes made on how society operates have been acted upon in a matter of weeks. It is apparent that when lives and livelihoods are at stake, individuals are prepared to make sacrifices and changes in order to have a future.  So by applying this new 2020 vision it is possible for us all to accept a ‘New Normal’ where not only caring for one another is paramount, caring for the planet also becomes second nature".

Date will be announced soon.
