Other exciting things happening at South Square

Yesterday we had a visit from Conrad Atkinson to begin preparations for an exhibit in March/April 2011 featuring some of his works relating to the Brontes and on the theme of immigration.

Conrad Atkinson is an influential international artist, originally from Cleator Moor, Cumbria. He has exhibited in a range of prestigious galleries such as the Tate and the Ronald Feldman Gallery (New York).

Below is a picture of part of one of his exhibits at the Feldman Gallery, "Dorothy Gale Meets Emily Bronte in Technicolor " June 7 to July 11, 1997.

Also at South Square, our resident Fine Art Framer, Andy Rushworth, featured in the T&A yesterday in a business interview about his new print-making venture "Scratch". This will allow printmakers to hire his studio for their works, without having to buy all the equipment themselves.
