Students at Stratford-upon-Avon College will have the chance to meet artist, Katharine Barker, and see art work with a difference during the opening weeks of the Spring term. Katharine’s work, which will be on show in the College’s Brazz Gallery from the 3rd January to the 10th February, is inspired by her career working with historic textiles and through scientific study, including organic chemistry, physics and earth science.
Katharine writes, “I am really looking forward to showing the students how I gain inspiration, how paintings and sculptures can develop from such seemingly abstract and alien ideas and how I use an in depth knowledge of materials to put my ideas into practice.”
Wendy Freeman, Community Arts Liaison Officer, said, “Our cafe environment provides a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy contemporary art. We are lucky to host such an innovative and inspiring exhibition, students and the general public can view sophisticated art of International standard.”
The Brazz Gallery is open to the public from 10am to 7pm, Monday to Thursday, 10am to 1pm on Fridays and by appointment on Saturdays.
Stratford-upon-Avon College offers a range of Art & Design Diploma Courses to students across Warwickshire, Solihull, and the West Midlands.
