As March arrives, we welcome a new artist Naomi Dix, to Oxheys and we say goodbye and good luck to Laura, who leaves to have a baby. Naomi, an artist working with textiles, is moving into one of the basement studios, next to ceramicist Terry who joined us a few months ago.
The basement is currently being redecorated, with walls and ceiling being painted white, brightening it up no end. Terry made a start with painting the floor and walls and Naomi has already got stuck in with sealing and painting the other walls and we are all very grateful to Suni who becomes a ‘Friend of Oxheys’ for his work in stripping and painting the ceiling and remaining walls. They are doing a great job!
We do currently have a space in the basement available, next to Naomi, in the open plan area so if you need a space to work and don’t need natural light, contact us to arrange to view, have a look around and meet the artists.
March also kicks off with another session in the Life Drawing series with life model Robin Fanner. Currently invitation-only, these sessions have been gaining some interest amongst other artists so we are planning to run more in the future and open up booking to a wider audience. If you would like to find out more, join our mailing list and also contact us to register interest.
We have a number of events planned for 2014 and are currently finalising dates so do join the mailing list to stay informed. Meanwhile, if you have ideas for using our Project Space for a residency or exhibition, do contact us.
