Join us on Saturday October 6th at 2.30pm to meet Julia Burns of Red Hen Orginals. There will be nibbles and drinks served and a chance to talk to Julia.
Julias' quirky, original hand-printed images have a contemporary edge but are all made using that most traditional of techniques - potato-printing. "All you need is a potato, some paint and a table top", says Julia, whose charming prints evoke her rural surroundings.
Growing up in a creative household, with an early interest in art stimulated by her father, an architect, who was passionate about aesthetics and design. She took a foundation course at York Art College, followed by a place at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art at University College, London, and moved to North Yorkshire in 1985. Julia’s large-scale abstract works were been exhibited worldwide, including London, Europe, Japan and America. However, circumstances forced Julia to shift her creative direction and Red Hen Originals was born. You can read more about her story & see her work on her website www.redhenoriginals.com.
The exhibition will run in the Gallery until 30th October 2014.
