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.

NIK POLLARD at MULTIPLIED ART FAIR – LIVE PRINTING

Muliplied 2014LIVE PRINTING – NIK POLLARD

RABLEY CONTEMPORARY STAND 32

FRIDAY 17 OCTOBER  10.30 – 5pm

NP duo 10 x 5

Nik Pollard is Rabley Drawing Centre’s Artist in Residence 2014. This year he has been out in all weathers on the 700 acre farm that surrounds Rabley at the heart of the Wiltshire downs – hiding in cover waiting for hares, sitting in the field margins or hovering by the pond watching dragonflies and red kite.

His work stems from a passion for the natural world and is generated from sustained, direct observation. He makes drawings and paintings in the field and develops ideas through printmaking in the studio.
