The Summer Exhibition at Rabley Drawing Centre brings together 15 artists from the Drawing and Print School. Each has made work that is highly individual within the creative and supportive Studio & Print Sessions at Rabley.
The regular Studio & Print sessions offer weekly ongoing creative development and support throughout the year. Experimental and conventional drawing underpins the variety of print disciplines. The school’s focus on developing work through new technologies including acid free and non – toxic printmaking has brought a vitality to the studio as each artist researches and develops the potential of their ideas through various media.
A stimulating dialogue with visiting artist tutors Meryl Ainslie, Sara Lee, Endellion Lycett Green, Nik Pollard, and Emma Stibbon RA, along with the support of Rabley Studio Printmaker Amy-Jane Blackhall, has enabled the development of exciting new work over the last year.
Print Raffle Prints by exhibiting artists Arran Miles, Suzy Miles and Rosemary Farrer have been generously donated for raffle in aid of the Rabley Student Bursary Scheme that encourages diversity of course attendees and offers students that could not normally afford to take part the opportunity to develop their practice on a suitable course. Tickets will be on sale throughout the exhibition and the draw will be on Sunday afternoon.

Loss, Landscape and Goodbye HMS Protector final blog..
As we depart from the Peninsula and the last small growler if ice disappears on the horizon I am struck by a sense of loss, I realise I am unlikely to have the opportunity to return to this remarkable landscape. The Peninsula coastline is astoundingly beautiful and perplexing. In visiting such a remote place I become acutely aware that this is a climate that can’t sustain human life. One has the sense of being overwhelmed by nature, an awareness that we are just a species like any other. Apparently the last pristine wilderness this is an environment that profoundly influences the planet’s oceans and climate.
My thanks to Scott Polar Research Institute for selecting me for the Antarctica Artist Placement 2013, and Bonhams for their sponsorhip. A big thank you to HMS Protector and the ship’s company for making me so welcome me onboard.
These blogs have not been posted in real time due to the remote location.
Emma Stibbon will be exhibiting at Rabley Contemporary in November 2013 – so keep posted!
