Meet the Artist: Kelly Stewart
14:00 on 21 March 2020
Join us for an artist talk with Kelly Stewart to celebrate our new exhibition Each for Equal: Prints From the Collection
About this Event
A unique opportunity to meet Kelly Stewart, established Edinburgh-based artist and printmaker. This intimate event will celebrate the exhibition Each for Equal, showcasing strong work by women artists in Edinburgh Printmakers for International Women’s Day.
Kelly will discuss her art practice, and the journey she has undertaken to become a full time artist. She will touch on the challenges and struggles that she has faced along the way, raising universal issues inherent in career development for (female) artists.
There will be opportunity ask questions, and there will be additional art objects and materials in the space to explore.
Kelly will have a signed selection of her work available in the gallery shop and on show to view and purchase on the day of her presentation.
Born in Sydney, Australia, Kelly studied a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communications) hones, majoring in illustration at University of Western Sydney and a further year a Tafe West Ryde to study printmaking. Kelly moved to Edinburgh in the summer of 2000 to begin her illustration career and to travel. With a fascination of Victorian, Georgian and Gothic architecture Edinburgh became a constant source of inspiration and she began to draw individual buildings and street scenes. Kelly joined Edinburgh Printmakers workshop in 2001 and began focussing on the medium of silkscreen as a way of combining quirky architectural sketches with mark making and hand written texts.
