ESC Artists Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre

ESC Artists Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre

Looking forward to ESC Artists 2017 Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre which starts next week.

This is my 4th Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre with ESC Artists. Of course I am one of the founder members of this artist led group so I do exhibit at all the events we organise.

I am exhibiting a selection of air-chased, fold formed and embossed pieces of jewellery, some small sculptures crafted using various coppersmithing techniques. It would be lovely to see you at the exhibition. Do come and have a look!

Here are some pictures from past ESC Artists exhibitions. We set up a mixed exhibition with a range of work on display.

Stamford Georgian Festival 2017

ESC Artists had a wonderful time at the Stamford Georgian Festival this year.

Our stall at the Stamford Georgian Festival Street market looked amazing and we got fantastic comments about the quality of work on display. Everything on the stall was crafted by the participating artists at ESC Autumn exhibition and market to be held at Stamford Arts Centre from 26 October – 5 November 2017.

Sharing a Display cabinet with my friend Eve Marshall at the Lincolnshire Showcase. Eve is a fantastic felt artist and makes amazing felted accessories, sculptures and pictures.

Eve and I work together on several creative projects and designs which we exhibit at various locations including Art in the Heart Gallery at Westgate Arcade in Queensgate, Peterborough.

We are both co founders of ESC Artists with stained glass artist Cathi Prince and we organise gallery exhibitions and artist markets at Stamford Arts Centre.
