Join artist Fiona Larkin and the Women Artists of the North East Library at MIMA Friday 27 August, 2-4pm, for an introduction to Fiona’s co-commission responding the Middlesbrough Collection and Library Archive.
Fiona began her research for the commission in July this year and has been looking specifically at the work and legacy of Ethel Guymer, painter and founding member of the Cleveland Art Society. Fiona is using her own artistic practice, which includes drawing, writing, textiles photography and moving image to consider the aesthetic and social significance of Guymer’s work. In this event she’ll share some of her early research and talk about how she is approaching the commission – and she’s really keen to meet with people locally who may know more about Ethel, who are familiar with her work, or who may be able to shed light on the ideas and artistic community her paintings were part of.
The Library will also be open between 10-4pm if you just want to drop in and ask questions outside of the event. We hope you can join us this Friday.
