October FORUM - Threats To Art Practice

Thursday 31 October 2013
g39, Cardiff CF24 3DT

Appropriately falling on Halloween, we'll be talking about the difficulties and pitfalls of maintaining an art practice, the trials and tribulations that come with developing your work, and alongside discussing and evaluating the main three threats; time, space and money, this evening will be an opportunity to discuss and hopefully remedy some problems artists might be having. A ghoulish antidote to the threats to art practices! Threat themed refreshments will be provided.

This Weekend: Cognition Exhibition at The Atrium

Sophie Simon, Chelsea Edwards, Nia Manning, Alexandra Robbins, Bill Bryant, Heidi Smith, Katie Graham, Sammy Hamilton, Amy Shorter & Brittany Sims

Open 11am - 5pm Until 22nd October.

A series of personal projects by thirteen third year BA(Hons) Photography students at the ATRiuM: Cardiff School of Creative and Cultural Industries.

An eclectic mix of genres including fine art, natural history, documentary, wildlife and more. Showcasing a range of styles and techniques; from traditional and experimental darkroom imagery, to more contemporary and very sharp, precise digital work.

These differences in style and personal interest within the imagery is particularly thought-provoking as the students have been together learning and practicing over the past two years and finally coming into their own in terms of where they want to go within their practice. The differences bind the work together in unison, as this is a first time exhibition for many of the students involved.

Contact Sophie Simon at sophiebsimon@gmail.com for more details.
