The ReConnect group have been back in the studio for several weeks now and have really hit the ground running. Several new artists have joined the group, along with a few that we haven’t seen for a while, and all seem to be settling in well and getting on with making some lovely new artwork.
We started the block with a visit from Scott Lang who used to attend the studio as a participant. Scott has just graduated with a degree in art and came back to hang his ‘Schementality‘ exhibition in our Gallery 2 space and to share some of his techniques in working with stencils. Scott is currently working alongside the artists Kennard Phillips in Stills gallery as part of the Edinburgh Arts Festival and his exhibition here in Trongate 103 runs until 29th August.
Simon McAuley has also been volunteering with the group and showing a selection of artist films in our Project Room. He will also be running some painting workshops, focussing on colour mixing, later in the block.
Some of the ReConnect group have also been busy updating their website. You can visit it at https://reconnectartists.wordpress.com/ and see some more of the work they have been making.
