Join us in St Leonards on Wednesday 10th April for the closing event of Gemma‘s artwork installed at The SPACE : A Zone of Art and Nature – ZAN.

The event will be very informal and in the outside space from 4pm – 6pm. Gathering on site to see the work in person and enjoy it’s vibrancy as a community, Project Art Works will join members of THE SPACE to celebrate the collaboration.

Please note that there is no shelter at THE SPACE as it is an outside venue. The nearest toilets are at The Royal at the end of Kings Road. Parking on the street around the space is limited but free.

THE SPACE utilises a billboard on land next to St Leonards Warrior Square train station with artists projects developed through collaboration with the artists managing the project.

Gemma uses joyful physical gesture when painting applying bright colours to surfaces with large, heavy
brushes. Movements may be in response to music or interactions with other artists. Gemma produces works on paper and canvases simultaneously and vocalises her responses with key phrases throughout the day.

Gemma sits cross legged on the floor and uses a large brush to add paint to paper.
