We are pleased to announce artist Amy Jones as the Lead Artist for Hospitalfield’s Young Artist Club. Amy will be joined by Art Education Assistants Kristina Aburrow and Rachel Simpson.
On Wednesday 5 May we revealed a new film, ‘behind the scenes’ of the collections at Hospitalfield, which was followed by a discussion with the conservators Gail Egan & Henry Matthews from Egan, Matthews & Rose with Hospitalfield’s Scott Byrne. Part of a research programme developed as we embark on the journey of conservation; the collection of paintings, the historic interiors where they are hung and the newly planned stores which we believe must be ‘open’. The film features interviews with the conservators and our dedicated volunteer teams so reflecting the workings behind the display.
Hospitalfield are very pleased to announce the artists selected for the Graduate Programme 2021. The Mentoring Circle (Sekai Machache, Eoin Dara, Tendai Mutambu and Cicely Farrer) selected 30 artists from an open call for this year’s programme which combines residency with online mentoring. We look forward to welcoming the artists to the programme over the next twelve months.
Are you a young person in Arbroath or Angus interested in making art? Art can be anything you like! Drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, filmmaking, nail art, tattooing, performance, computer art and more.
While Hospitalfield have not been able to host residencies with practitioners staying at Hospitalfield, we have been hosting artists currently based in Angus in the Patrick Allan Fraser historic studio. This has been an amazing opportunity to connect more deeply with artists involved in the Arbroath 2020+1 Programme and artists based in the vicinity of Hospitalfield.
