The following blog posts and are take from a blog (which is now inactive and has been back dated) dedicated to the my Mini Residency in Arena, colettelilleyatarena.wordpress.com
Arena Studios is doing something different with their gallery space for the next few months. Arena artists can book a two week gallery slot to use the space in any way they want. This includes offering invites to others to use the space.
Arena Member Josie Jenkins has invited me to undertake a mini residency in the space from 27th April.
I’ll be using the gallery walls, as well as blog as a sketch book, exploring the idea of learning to see through learning to draw, using observational drawing as a tool for meditation; to stay presence.
The mini residency in the Arena Gallery will include an opening to the public on Thursday 7th May 6pm – 9pm.
