Joshua Henderson and Veronica Watson: Studio Me

  • 11.00 AM - 6.00 PM

Sat 17 Nov - Sun 31 March 2019

Open daily 11am - 6pm

Our Winter season of interlinked exhibitions focuses on the changing nature of artistic education. For Studio Me Joshua Henderson and Veronica Watson, who have developed their practice as members of Blue Room, Bluecoat’s inclusive arts programme, embark on their first studio residency, sharing work from their individual practices. Henderson’s architecture-inspired drawings have evolved through a newly developed etching practice, using Bluecoat’s print studio. Watson’s portraiture practice has developed through observing the faces of the people who populate Bluecoat, including staff, volunteers and artists. The exhibition introduces audiences to both their work and the artists themselves, through drop-in activities and invitations to collaborate on artworks, look out for details on our website and social media.
