Plus bring your own art!
Due to popularity of our festive party ‘show and tell’ marketplace, the new 2020 Art Lab format is two artists presentation followed by a more informal ‘show and tell’ session. Please bring anything you are working on, recent work, back catalogues, inspirations – anything you want to display and discuss on the night.
Jan Langdale is a Glass Artist, based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Her inspiration has evolved from nature and the elements, trees, water, colours and light.
"I create hand-painted, multi-layered glass panels. Through my artwork I aim to share a sense of the stillness and peace that is inherent within the simplicity and beauty of nature, captured and reflected within the beauty of glass.
"Glass has always held a fascination for me with its reflective and refractive qualities, its fragility and robustness, the way the colours can change with light from being barely visible to becoming lustrous and iridescent.”
Andy Abbott is an artist, writer, curator and arts organiser who lives in Bradford. He has exhibited and performed internationally as an individual artist and in various collaborations including the art collective Black Dogs. In 2012 Andy was awarded a practice-led PhD from the University of Leeds with a thesis on ‘art, self-organised cultural activity and the production of postcapitalist subjectivity’. As an arts organiser and curator he has produced a public programme for In-Situ, piloted a Centre for Socially Applied Arts at University of Bradford, and was a director of the Community Interest Company Art in Unusual Spaces.
