A P A R T is a new exhibition showcasing the visual responses of 6 artists to a short story written by Louie Zeegen. The story, conceived specifically for the show, is split into 6 with each artist responding to a different section within the text. The work will take the viewer on a visual journey through the tale of one mans inner thoughts of love, loss and desperation.
The exhibition, held on Sunday 10th August at Terrace Bar in Manchester, will be the culmination of a two day workshop (part of the on-going Music Workshops programme), ran by Jon Bland & Dan Lancaster of the Manchester based creative agency Music.
A limited edition publication of the artists work will be available for purchase on the night. The event is sponsored by G . F Smith and supported by Intern magazine.
Contributors: Mark Simmonds (Werkplaats, Netherlands), Saori Masuda (Chelsea), Rob Headley (LJMU), Liv McCarthy (Leeds Met), Joel Burden (Leeds College of Art) & Rachel Dalton (Brighton).
Sunday August 10th. 6:30 – Late. Free Entry.
Terrace (upstairs) Thomas Street, Manchester.
‘After taking over the internship programme at Music, I felt like the usual process of asking students to travel from all over for a 20 minute chat wasn’t the best way to do things, from either parties point of view. I decided a weekend workshop here at our studio, ran by myself and another designer at Music, Dan Lancaster would be more beneficial. The workshops give us a chance to get to know the graduates / students and they come away with a decent insight into Music, as well as portfolio piece. The workshops then feed directly into our internship programme.’

A real pleasure to come across Grace’s work a while ago so now seems as good a time as any to do a quick post about her as she’s just launched her lovely new site (resplendent with a lovely colourful gradient background).
Her understanding and application of colour and line are a joy to behold, I can only suggest that you take your time going through her site as the deeper you dig the more you get!

Stand Up! Or, How We Love to Watch You Risk It All.
Some mid week pep for you from the great James Victore, this week talking about “Earning it ALL the time” and not becoming lazy in your work. I can’t recommend highly enough sending a ‘Burning Question’ to James, we did it a while back and got a fantastic answer back from him, if you don’t know, ask!

I have no idea how I came across the work of Llew Mejia, one day it just became apparent that I was continuously ‘liking’ his work on Instagram. Intricate patterns and exciting colour combinations dash across character drawings bringing them to life in a familiar but equally totally fresh and exciting way. I urge you to go forth and discover the wonderful work of Llew Mejia.
