Kathleen Dutton’s paintings, Jennifer Dutton’s prints, and the sisters in Skylark 2
To mark this year’s International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March, and the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World Festival—WOW—which runs from 6-10 March, sisters Jennifer Dutton and Kathleen Dutton are the featured artists exhibiting their work at Skylark 2. Jennifer’s lino prints and Kathleen’s paintings explore life and growth, and continue at the gallery on the first floor of Oxo Tower Wharf from 16 February to 10 March 2013.
Gill Hickman, Fire
In Skylark 1, the featured artist Gill Hickman is showing her new large embossed prints for the first time. Her work draws from the layers, patterns and textures found in the environment and in life. Gill is giving a talk at Skylark 1 in Gabriel’s Wharf on Friday 22 February at 6.30pm, when the gallery will stay open until 8pm. Gill’s exhibition, “Embossed and Embellished”, is at the gallery from 16 February until 1 March.
For details of talks, conferences, events and more on the South Bank, visit the Women of the World website.
Kathleen and Jennifer Dutton are the next featured artists at Skylark 2 — although there’s still the chance to catch the extended range of photographs by Colin Pearce this weekend. The Duttons will be showing their work from 26 June to 8 July, and talking about how poetry and the written word inspires their art on Friday 29 June at 6.30pm. Feel free to visit the gallery and meet the artists over a glass of wine.
Remember, the Skylark galleries are now a short walk from the new Blackfriars South Bank tube entrance: to find us when you surface on the Thames footpath, just walk in the direction of the London Eye for a few minutes. It couldn’t be easier. More here.
Skylark 2 was packed for Jennifer and Kathleen Dutton’s talk about their work at the recent Last Friday event. Here’s a selection of images from the highly successful evening. The sisters’ featured artist show in the gallery closes on Sunday 4 March—so hurry.
The next Last Friday is on 30 March, when Liz Meier is the featured artist. We hope to see you then.
