Students Vincent Lyles, Kate Buckley and Lue Jaques are eager to show their work at York’s annual community arts event, providing a fantastic platform for them to network and sell their work. They will exhibit together at Venue 71; The Winning Post, Bishopthorpe Road, during the weekends of 6th/7th & 13th/14th April (10.00am – 5.00pm).
The students each have their own specialisms;
Vincent Lyles: Figurative sculpture in a variety of scales, in fired clay, wood and stone.
Kate Buckley: Jewellery, lighting and interior designs exploring structure, translucency, the nuances of light and shade, repetition and pattern.
Lue Jaques: A silversmith, using a range of precious and semi-precious gem stones, featuring gold and oxides.
York College Art & Design tutor Beccy Ridsdel is the Chair of York Open Studios, she says: “We’re very pleased to support the Contemporary Craft degree students as their work is always of a high standard. York Open Studios is a great opportunity for them, and all artists, to sell their work and most of all to meet their customers and introduce people to their own specialist skills, techniques and work. Each year YOS artists welcome thousands of visitors over the two weekends as the event has a fantastic reputation for producing quality work from talented artists.”
