Create to Move: Residency

Saturday 14 July - Sunday 29 July
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

(visitors welcome when Gallery 2 doors are open)

Artist collective Create to Move will use Gallery 2 for a research and development residency.

The root of our research stems from three fundamental topics:

  1. AI and Technology
  2. Essence of Human Nature
  3. The Natural Environment.

We’re interested in where these topics intersect.

Physicality of touch, making and movement vs AI & technology.
In an increasingly computerised, urbanised and mechanised world, seemingly on the brink of an AI revolution, what are the values of nature, and creativity? As artists we share certain responsibilities to help to preserve the ways in which we express our humanity; through dance, making, play, craft and art. How is technology currently affecting us and how could it shape our futures?

Preview: Friday 13 July 7pm – 9pm

The current show gently references Eastern thought systems and life experiences.

These experiences and thought systems create a fine, almost invisible, but essential thread throughout the show.

About the artist

“What are you studying?”

She says leaning forward towards the glass box peering through

the wee hole.

“Painting”

I say crouching down to the tellers level

“Oh, how fabulous, I would love to able to paint,

 what do you paint?”

 

 Still, to this day, I have no answer.

I think. I feel. I question. I make.

no linear process, no endings, no beginnings, only movement, a cycle.

just as life.

Opening Event:  Friday, 13th July from 7-9 pm

An exhibition of selected work by recent graduate of Gray’s School of Art, Wouda Thompson. The work explores visual perception as a conscious experience and our expression of this experience. Through observational painting and drawings of carefully constructed still lives of abstract sculptures the show aims to question the line drawn between perception and interpretation

Owl Toys - Childrens Sewing class

Friday 27 July
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Owl toys are easy sewing projects for children aged 8-12. And they are fun to do. They are made from small amounts of fabric, felt and buttons, and offer lots of opportunities for to develop kids craft skills.

Children must already have done an introductory sewing class to learn how to use a sewing machine. Ideally they will have completed the Kids Sewing Course Level 1 or the Kids Introductory Sewing Class, and be confident using a machine.

What will my child learn?

  • cutting fabrics using a pattern,
  • further sewing practice
  • working with felt
  • sewing on buttons
  • how to stuff soft toys

Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

Course arrangements
All fabrics and equipment are provided.

I am insured and hold a full PVG (Disclosure Scotland) certificate.
