The Late Shows news

36 Lime Street will be taking part the citywide ‘Late Shows’ again this year.  Lime Street artists, designers and makers will be opening up their studios and offering workshops to late night visitors.
The exhibition in the gallery space ‘In Cahoots’ is themed on collaboration.  We will be sharing ideas and colluding to make exciting new work. Is this consensus or split personality art?
These events will take place in May on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th, 7-11pm

Louise Bradley and Helena Seget
The famous children’s book ‘The Owl Service’ by Alan Garner provides the theme for this collaborative project between fine artist Louise Bradley and porcelain designer Helena Seget.  Louise’s graphics, full of mystery and allusion, match the sinuous forms of Helena’s hand-crafted plates to create a homage to the original owl ‘service’. In Garner’s book, published in 1967, and still a favourite, three young people discover some old plates with impressionistic patterns that come together to form designs of strange, symbolic owls, resurrecting a legendary ghost.
Both Louise Bradley and Helena Seget are based at 36 Lime Street Studios in Newcastle, which is also where the plates will be on display as part of the ‘In Cahoots’ exhibition during the Late Shows Event 2012.Louise will also be running a workshop creating 3-D paper owls.

Lee Turner runs Hole Editions, a collaborative printmaking workshop specializing in hand lithography from his studio on level 2 in 36 Lime Street. As part of ‘In Cahoots’ he is showing colour lithographs which have been produce closely with American artist David Leigh and our very own Lime Street based Paul Merrick.
