Celebrate International Women’s Day at the Manchester Museum, meet artists Lucy Burscough, Rachael Elwell and Nicky Colclough, as they discuss their artistic practice, and female influences past and present; and their current work at Manchester Museum which is part of the Coral; Something Rich & Strange exhibition.
Enjoy drop-in workshops with demonstrations from:
Lucy Burscough, 1pm - she paints people. They inspire her to put paint to canvas. She is interested in them as fellow human beings, in their families, backgrounds, histories and experiences that each shape the figure they are at the moment they sit for her. Her scrupulous style of painting means that she never loose sight of the fact that she is a painter of incredibly stunning corporeal animals
Rachael Elwell, 2pm - her drawings explore the perceptual connections between line, form and space through contemporary drawing processes. Her work focuses on the relationship between chance as an essential dimension of art, and an interest in control and structure in the composition of image making.
Nicky Colclough, 3pm - a visual artist and creative practitioner working in community settings, creative education and arts in health. She likes to play, push and experiment with lots of different materials and ideas.
