This weekend I am selling my work for the first time at the Bath Contemporary Artists Fair which is being held at Green Park Station, Bath. I will be there with Simon Taylor who is selling his photographic work too www.simontaylorimages.co.uk. It is this Sunday 13th December from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
I have new black porcelain jewellery and a large range of my other porcelain pendants, earrings, brooches and these would be great Christmas presents. I will also have a selection of my smaller porcelain vessels.
Please do come along and say hello if you are in Bath, it would be lovely to see you.
I am currently exhibiting in an on line exhibition with the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath as part of The Bath Society of Artists Annual Open Visit www.victoriagal.org.uk for a virtual tour.
I also have work in the RUH main corridor again with The Bath Society of Artists Members Exhibition in conjunction with Art at the Heart. A third of all sales will go to the RUH Arts Fund. Visit www.artatruh.org to view the exhibition on line.
For the first time I am going to have a stall at Bath Contemporary Art Fair on Sunday 13th December at Green Park Station where I will have a selection of jewellery and smaller items suitable as gifts. I will be sharing my stand with Simon Taylor www.simontaylorimages.co.uk. Visit www.bcaf.co.uk for more details of the Fair.
We were having a Christmas Market at the studios but sadly this has been cancelled.
A number of us have made little videos of ourselves in our studios as we are not open so please go to U-tube and take a look at us.
I am going to be running a number of classes when we re-open in December so if you feel like getting your hands on some clay and getting creative please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will give you more details. Groups of 6 will be catered for in our gallery which at present cannot be used for exhibitions, and social distancing will be easy. It will be great fun.
Here is the video I have made of me working in my studio so you can have a virtual tour. Hope you enjoy it.
'From where I am Standing' Swindon Museum of Art 21st September, 2016 to 4th February, 2017
Swindon Museum and Art Gallery was delighted to work with Mary-Jane Evans on the exhibition From Where I’m Standing which ran between September 2016 and January 2017. She was one of ten regional ceramic artists who produced new work in response to the permanent collections at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery. Mary-Jane Evan’s finished work was a confident, sensitive and challenging response to the work of Charles Howard.
Mary Jane Evans’s ceramics combine an elegant simplicity of form balanced by a rich and complex combination of texture, process and materiality. Her work is highly contemporary but also reflexive: she creates thoughtful and thought-provoking modern ceramic art.
As we have slowly come out of lockdown and the studios have re-opened and are coming back to life I would like to announce that I am starting some new workshops.
These will include my usual one to one in my studio, portfolio sessions for students and graduates but also I will be doing larger workshops in the gallery in a socially distanced environment.
I will be starting an 'Introduction to Handbuilding' this will involve learning various handbuilding techniques, coiling and slabbing and glazing and also 'Introduction to Paper Porcelain Clay'. Working with paper clay is a really exciting technique as anything can be accomplished - sculptures, wall pieces, whatever you want and it will be unique to you. A one off !!
Please get in touch via phone 07984 645380 or e-mail email@example.com for dates and prices.
I look forward to seeing you again.
