HERE is the launch exhibition of The Art Station’s new creative and cultural space in the former post office building in Saxmundham, Suffolk. It is curated by artists Clare Palmier and Jane Watt - celebrating new and recent work by emerging and established contemporary artists with a strong connection to Suffolk and East Anglia.
Twenty-six artists with a diverse range of practices that reflect contemporary engagement with materials, process and ideas have been invited to install work across 3000 sq ft of the previously disused 1950s industrial building. Works include site-specific installation, sound, video, VR, photography, drawing, painting, ceramic, sculpture and performance by artists such as Graham Crowley, Maddie Exton, Laurence Edwards, Emily Godden, Kabir Hussain, William Cobbing, Ann-Marie James, Abigail Lane, Emily Richardson and Srinivas Surti.
Art Station is a non-profit arts organisation developing a new workspace for artists, creative industries and tech in rural Suffolk Coastal. HERE is part of Art Station’s on-going arts programme for the local and wider coastal Suffolk communities. It supports and showcases artists across the region and beyond through commissioning new work, exhibitions, education projects and artist peer critique.
The exhibition will be open to the public for bookable small group tours and visits Saturdays and Sundays 10am-4pm. Or by appointment. www.theartstation.uk
