Artsfest 2019 - Teachers Network Event - Wolverhampton Art Gallery
22 May 2019 at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, 5 - 8pm.
This event will include a tour of the exhibition Lisa Henderson: Landscapes at Wolverhampton Art Gallery with the artist Lisa Henderson, followed by a creative workshop exploring the materials, techniques and processes Lisa uses to make her work.
There will also be opportunity to see the exhibitions Radical Landscapes: Pre-Raphaelites and their French Contemporaries and Making an Impression: Prints by Manet, Pissaro and their Contemporaries.
Lisa Henderson is originally from Cardiff but her art and practice is closely linked to the West Midlands and Staffordshire, where she has lived since the 1970s.
Her work is inspired by the shapes, colours and textures found in nature. Henderson’s paintings use collaged, recycled and pre-prepared papers alongside printmaking techniques such as wiping, scratching and breaking in to the picture’s surface to achieve rich texture and colour in an abstract and fluid creative process.
This new exhibition features paintings, drawings and collagraphs inspired by wild and natural landscapes and includes a new Cannock Chase series, inspired by the seasons. The landscapes of Wales, Scotland, New Zealand and imagined ‘other worlds’ are also represented in the show.
