Suffolk (PRWEB UK) 30 August 2012
The Bridge Project is delighted to have appointed Jen Sendall, based at Atrium Studios at University Campus Suffolk (UCS), as its Artist in Residence. The Bridge Project is based in Sudbury and is a local charity working with disadvantaged adults and towards a vision of being a ‘community within a community’.
Jen is excited to be encouraging creativity, communication and ambition in those challenged by disabilities, illness or unemployment, both in locations around Suffolk and at the Atrium Studios themselves. The residency theme ‘Recycle, Renew, Reuse’ has inspired Jen to facilitate three collaborative large sumi ink paintings with the titles of “Rubbish” “Nature” and finally “Utopia” which will be a work in progress during the exhibition held at the striking UCS Waterfront building foyer. Visitors are welcome to join in.
Jen will also be exhibiting portraits of some of the people she has met through the residency. She feels that portraiture celebrates the worth and uniqueness of an individual, and can be a very empowering experience. The exhibition will show participants other works, including some on quirky and fun recycled papers containing elephant poo and re-used bank notes.
The exhibition will be at the The Foyer Gallery, UCS Waterfront Building, Neptune Quay, Ipswich IP4 1QJ.
