Artists Forum with Susan Simpson @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

Following the success of the first meeting back in June, artist and photographer Susan Simpson is returning to lead a series of Artist Forums, beginning on Thursday 12 September. As before the venue will be the gallery café, which will offer an informal setting to look at and debate topics relevant to the creative community. There will also be the opportunity to discuss one another’s work and ideas. So come along, grab a coffee and maybe a delicious homemade cake from our café and join in.

Susan says – “The subject up for discussion at this first meet-up is validity – a feeling that I sometimes experience very strongly and at other times, despite lengthy searching – eludes me! It would be great to see how we all feel about the idea of needing to feel comfy in our own art bubbles…”

Artist Susan Simpson is returns to 20-21 for the next in this series of Artist Forums. As before the venue will be the gallery café, which will offer an informal setting to look at and debate topics relevant to the creative community. There will also be the opportunity to discuss one another’s work and ideas. So come along, grab a coffee and maybe a delicious homemade cake from our café and join in.

This time her chosen subject is class, and whether practising fine art has become a luxury the working class are no longer privy to.

Susan says – “In this session we’ll look at whether the socio-economic situation is forcing people out of the art scene and out of an opportunity to bring their stories to the public arena”
