RH Prints aka Ruth Hudson is an experimental print maker and painter. Her original linocuts are printed on an 1856 lithograph press from her home studio in Stamford.

After studying Combined Arts at Newcastle University, Ruth went on to train at the Chelsea School of Art and the Leicester Print Workshop. Her work is influenced by her previous career working in Interior and fashion magazine production. She is inspired by German Abstract Expressionism and Bauhaus Aesthetics. Ruth has produced prints of many local landscapes including Burghley House, Normanton Church, Oakham Market Square and distinctive buildings in an around Stamford. Ruth uses the 'reduction' method of printmaking, favoured by Pablo Picasso who coined the term 'suicide printing'. Her work is often bold and graphic and hopes to reflect current trends and, quietly, offer a form of social commentary.

Ruth also holds Beginners lino print workshops throughout the year. Her next event will take place on 6th June at The Blonde Beet in Stamford http://www.blondebeet.co.uk

You can subscribe to Ruth's newsletter to be the first to know about forthcoming events and workshop via http://www.rhprints.com

RH Prints aka Ruth Hudson also screen prints a limited edition t shirt and sweatshirt range using her original prints. Using eco friendly inks, the designs are printed on to organic ethical cotton. Ruth is hoping to have her new collection ready in time for the Peterborough Open Studios.

Quite simply I try to photograph what catches my eye, and hope it will catch yours too. Having been interested in photography a long time, I started taking it a little more seriously in 2012. Since then, I have learnt what I can in an effort to achieve better results.



There will be a variety of my work available on display to purchase or order. Whilst browsing and asking any questions you have, Bewitched offer a great range of refreshments.

If you want to park as close to the venue as possible when visiting, use the Railway Sidings Pay and Display car park, unless you want to wander into town afterwards in which the multi-storey Sand Martin House car park.

I am an artist and printmaker, My inspirations and main themes are the shapes and patterns found in nature and the man-made world. I like a nice mis-shapen tree, old fence posts or broken gates. I work mainly from my own photographs, usually taken in the countryside around my home in East Anglia. I love drawing with a pencil: I think it is a wonderfully versatile tool, but I also like using pastels and charcoal. I paint in acrylics, oil and watercolour. I also enjoy playing with colour and texture by mixing media and making collages. My prints are normally linocuts or drypoint.

A passion for gardening and my job as a freelance garden writer has been the catalyst for my paintings, prints and textile designs based around plants and flowers. I love colour, and this is always reflected in the work that I do, as well as in my home surroundings and my small town garden in the middle of Stamford. Paintings (oils and watercolours), prints and a range of organic cotton floral tea towels will be available.





There will be coffee, tea, cold drinks and some delicious homemade cakes on offer, alongside the art. Donations for refreshments, on a pay as you feel basis, will go to the Crohn's & Colitis UK charity. Visitors are very welcome to sit in the tiny garden which has been redesigned and planted this year.

Inspired by the natural landscape and ancient sites, I create constructed textiles using hand and machine embroidery.  Found objects often embellish my work and develop new storylines.

The techniques used in my textile rarely depart from a blend of slow handstitching and intense machine embroidery to accentuate forms and structures.I occasionally experiment with eco dyeing and use these pieces as focus areas in my work related to landscapes.

I work intuitively with the observed ancient landscape, often drifting into memory and impressions. Soft colours,  hand dyed fabric  and threads inspire me to create images that recall places and events.

I am an exhibiting textile artist with the 'Exquisite Heritage' mixed media group . We had exhibitions in 2017 and 2018, the latter at Peterborough Cathedral, and were working towards our next exhibition when the pandemic slowed us down.

I work in a studio at home, but my handstitching is portable and follows me everywhere, travelling with it brings change of perspective, colour and the freedom to change ideas when faced with new imagery is always a delight. I keep sketchbooks with drawings and samplers to refresh ideas. This  year I am a member of Textile.org and have a piece in their archive after working through one of their workshops. I enjoy teaching, and inspiring others has been a joy during the difficult pandemic time. As a result of this I have textile slow stitch friends in a community that is now world wide to exchange ideas with.

 

The rhythm, pattern and repetition of hand stitching has accompanied me through the years ,taking various forms in creative textile pieces; in 2D, 3D , costume design and garment construction. My formal background is a Fine Art degree with a PGCE in teaching. I finished my teaching career as a Head of Department that specialised in Textiles.

I capture the environments I am surrounded by using a variety of methods and mediums. During the last couple of years I’ve also been capturing the natural and man made objects I am surrounded by, lots of these are based of local areas because of covid restrictions. New pieces celebrate the fact I can travel a little further a field too. I still like to say all my art works are sketches of a busy mind by a body which doesn’t always work. My most up to date work can be found on my Instagram page @janemehmedgarner

I have a passion for Art, looking and doing, I'm really enjoying mixed media with all it's unusual exciting twists

I am a self taught artist and have rediscovered my love of creating art after many years of doing none at all. I love looking at art, all kinds, and a couple of years ago went along to a local art exhibition where I met an artist named Wendy who persuaded me to go along to a new art group and here I am ... I have recently completed a brilliant drawing course with a local artist, Paisley Art, which gave me back my passion for mark making.

I prefer experimenting with media and mixing  different ones together to see what evolves sometimes magical and sometimes…..  Well you can always paint over it.

VENUE 14 ALSO SHOWING WORK BY TEXTILE ARTIST ANITA BRUCE & PHOTOGRAPHER SAILESH PANCHAL 

Fundamentally my work is all about drawing and mark making; I find it difficult to separate myself from their vitality and importance whether I choose painting, collage, printmaking - or a mixture of the three, ‘Drawing’ is what it continues to be about. ‘Drawing’ with a paintbrush or in collage ‘drawing’ with shapes of paper and colour. Setting in motion the development of an idea plus a sense of renewal and continuation.



Julie was awarded as one of the six winners in the 41st Mini Print International de Cadaquès 2021. The exhibition in Cadaquès Catalunya, has been running for over 40 years and brings together works from over 640 artists worldwide who each submit 4 pieces of work using printmaking and it's tendencies. 
As a winner Julie was given a solo exhibition in Gallery Taller Fort in the beautiful town of Cadaquès, famously the home of Dali and a draw to artists from across the globe.The exhibition which ran throughout August 2022 was a great success and & she will be showing similar pieces at her open studio exhibition this year

This year's open studio will also include work in progress for Julie's forthcoming solo exhibition at Stamford Contemporary Arts in September 


Julie says,

"I am delighted to be, once again, opening my studio, garden & home gallery this year The Miniprint win meant an awful lot to me and I am really excited to share similar works and the process behind the making of them in my studio"



Julie's work is shown and collected internationally

I work in mixed media to create vibrant paintings which are inspired by Heritage textiles from across the globe. An obsession with embroideries, printed fabrics, portraits and shoes is my starting point, and I use oil paint, gold leaf, handmade paper and canvas to create a rich and varied surface, often glazing the final work in resin for added depth of colour. Trained in Fine Art Printmaking, I am including Lino prints on the theme of textiles, with the inclusion of surface pattern from ceramics mainly from the British Museum collections and the National Trust.



I will usually be working on carving my latest Lino print during the exhibition and will be happy to demonstrate. The small garden is open to enjoy the sunshine!

Prue Pye's life paintings contain a quiet presence reflected in earth colours and are the main body of her work. Abstracted landscapes described in sweeps and blocks of colour are also a favoured subject.

"My wanting to paint is a wanting to explore the ordinary and extraordinary of humanness. Drawing or painting in ways that communicate or speak of recognition and familiarity."

 

Born and raised in Africa, my fine art studies as a mature student led me to discover and develop life paintings with a contemporary feel. A need to express myself in colour gave me a language in paint. I had taught botanical studies and the modelling of flowers for many years and these tiny, fragile pieces later     turned to the direction of larger, expressive painting.

Where:Vivacity Unit, Queensgate, Peterborough. (Guildhall entrance off Cathedral Square)Over the last few years Peterborough's leading cultural charity Vivacity has been donating their shop unit to artists from Peterborough Artist Open Studios to showcase their work. This February 2020, the unit will once again be set up as an art space, going live with art in action, demonstrations and the chance to get involved creating some new energetic designs, some even destined for digital output and online presentation.Open for a week, the space features work from two of Peterborough’s artists, James Tovey and John Elson.

Exhibition organised by Peterborough Cathedral Education team and Peterborough Environment and City Trust. Located at new building, Peterborough Cathedral, August to October 2019 to coincide with the Luke Jerram Gaia installation.The artwork idea was originated from bench ends and miserchord designs, particularly the Mermaid of Zennor.Framed in a large red oak frame and set up on a specially built temporary stand in the new building, the artwork received over 800 engagements many from Peterborough school children, The picture has been widely viewed and engaged with on the internet. A further note on the making of Mermaid with her Mahi-Mahi and Oceanplastic: I held all the seaplastic objects in my hand whilst painting them, there is no fixed view point or vanishing point in the painting. The objects were never arranged other than in the painting for the effect of pattern and the illusion of space. The depth and space in the painting comes from the scale compared to the viewer and the mermaid and her fish. Some objects are larger than life-size, others smaller. I purposely did not play with combining different viewpoints in a cubist manner nor reverse perspective in a David Hockney type way; but the floating placement without a single perspective position and the conscious play of scale does nod to Hockney in that respect. The original concept was to make use of black delineations in a cartoon/graphic manner consistent with my ink drawings but that would have then flattened to space and obstructed the content as I felt its method would have become too dominant. I was injured at the time and had to paint with my right hand as well as my left it slowed me down and I averaged about six pieces of plastic a day, overall the picture took about a month to make, the sea blues had to be painted a few times to help with the depth in the pigment.‘Drift’

Plastic is now ubiquitous.
We’re living through the Plasticene. 
You can buy a 2.4m plastic cactus for your hallway; you won’t have to water a real cactus using tap water, that itself now contains plastic micro-particles.

‘The plastic arts’ is a term that had existed long before plastic itself. I have wanted to try and look at the plastic objects I had collected over the last few years as naively as possible, as though life-drawn for the first time by an art student intent on learning through prolonged observation. Not interested in the Neoplastism of the De Stijl movement, instead my initial thoughts were of a metamorphosis and of bringing ancient mythology and plastic ¬- a 20th century invention - together in an uncomfortable way. However I found myself reluctant to go too far down the path of the collision of two plastic objects to transmogrify into a third construct - yet there is a definite modernist basis for some of the elements.

The mermaid painting backdrop idea came from a small toy figure found as sea plastic litter. It is actually the top half part of a small Barbie figurine, but I initially thought it to be Disney’s The Little Mermaid. I researched mermaid art and came across the mermaid of Zennor and was attempting to build a composition around that and some lines from Ovid but the plastic overwhelmed it.

Wood is an obvious counterpoint and natural contrast with which I have felt more at ease. The plastic components are essentially ready-mades although altered by collision with natural processes in the environment and some minor assemblage. Wood is also an ancient, relevant building material. In this installation, the wood forms a sanctuary, a natural structure and the plastic is an imposition on it and in it.

There is no doubt the terrible convenient addiction that societies have developed for plastic eases the struggle against decay in the short term. What now looks to be a permanent error is that plastic is with us for the foreseeable and has been injected into the human food chain. I can imagine a child born being described as a plastic native to perhaps a planet slowly choking at Plastigeddon,
