Last Chance – Did You Notice?

The East of Bury Artist’s Trail Exhibition at Stowhealth will be coming down on Thursday.

Artists who took part are: Annabel Ridley, Rebecca Moss Guyver, Carol Saunderson, Jane Lewis, Brenda Reiss, Wendy Theobald, Emma Buckmaster and Lucy Perry.

Most of the artists who took part will be at Stowhealth from 5-7pm on Thursday and visitors will have a chance to see the art one last time before we take it down. In addition, we have produced a catalogue with images and text, including the wonderful poems of Michael Laskey, words by Alain de Botton, Dale Devereux Barker, Dr Sara Booth and Bee Shay. These will be on sale at cost. Thursday will also be a chance to continue the conversation about the role visual arts can play in wellbeing. Stowhealth’s gallery is up on the first floor.



Exhibition – Did You Notice?

StowHealth is hosting an exhibition entitled “Did You Notice?” from this Thursday, September 17th until early January.

Suffolk Open Studios East of Bury artists: Rebecca Guyver, Annabel Ridley, Lucy Perry, Carol Saunderson, Emma Buckmaster, Brenda Reiss and Wendy Theobald will show their artwork at the practice along with Jane Lewis, another Suffolk painter. Poems by poet Michael Laskey will reflect on some of the themes of the exhibit: colour, mindfulness, wellbeing, sight, narrative and interpretation. The show aims to create a dialogue between the arts, medicine and patient recovery.

The Exhibition opening event date has changed and will now be on Wednesday October 14th 7 – 9pm at StowHealth, Violet Hill House,
Violet Hill Road,
Suffolk, IP14 1NL. Visitors will have a chance to see the artwork, talk to artists and hear from Dr Sara Booth, from Addenbrookes, about her experience of the role visual arts can play in wellbeing. Michael Laskey will also read his poems. All welcome!

Rebecca Moss Guyver and Annabel Ridley will lead collage and drawing workshops at Stowhealth on Fridays October 23rd and November 6th from 10:30-1pm. The drawing workshop will use objects and association and relate drawing to memory in order to create personal responses to chosen objects. The collage workshop will involve collect and collage. Participants will make 2d & 3d work using found image, text and colour. This work will be a personal response to narrative, interpretation and balance.

Individuals in the group have exhibited in the Royal Academy, The Mall Galleries, and have their work held in national and international collections.

Stowhealth has a long tradition and commitment to the visual arts.
