Salon Saloon: Emma Wilde, artist talk
Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (BST)
Northampton, United Kingdom
Fishmarket at... is an offsite season of contemporary art across Northampton whilst Fishmarket renovate their new building.
Salon Saloon is a series of monthly talks by artists and curators with opportunities for discussion and a chance to meet and network with artists, filmmakers and people working in the creative industries.
The June Salon Saloon is an opportunity to hear Emma Wilde talk about her practice during her residency in Northampton as part of the Fishmarket at... season. Emma has turned an empty shop in the Market Walk Shopping Centre into a working studioto use as her base for making new work. Her drawings look at her locale as she depicts the buildings and nature around her and their relationship - weeds or trees encroaching upon urban space, or perhaps it is vice versa.
Working in pencil and ground charcoal with watercolour on paper, Emma’s drawings are delicate examinations of her environment - the centre of Northampton. Emma lived in Northampton as a child and this residency is bringing her back to the town and allows her to rediscover the town through photography and drawing.
Emma will be working in the studio and out on location around Northampton from 26 May until 17 June Wednesday-Sundays. The talk is free so come along and join the discussion.
This project was made possible with support from Arts Council England, Northampton Borough Council, Northamptonshire County Council. Special thanks to Market Walk Shopping Centre.
Address: Sanctuary Studios, 2 Clare Street, The Mounts, Northampton NN1 3JF
