Parndon Mill (my studio home) provides workspace for artists, craftspeople, designers and architects who have the opportunity to share ideas and use their different skills to collaborate on creative work. Here it is possible to commission an original piece of artwork in media as varied as oil paint, glass, clay, fabric, stone, wood or metal. Art for an office can be purchased or hired, commercial graphics ordered or a building or a product designed. The expertise is on site and can be supplemented by numerous associates with complementary abilities and a high level of professional skill.
Challenging and supporting one anothers perceptions, ideas and techniques, working towards group exhibitions that are both cohesive and professional.
The Gallimaufry Collective is a group of four artists Caroline Lumb, Janie Graham, Jo Howe and Mark L’Argent who have been exhibiting together in various guises since 2015.
They now come together to focus their approach. They are working on the same themes, responding with the variety of media they employ such as calligraphy, drawing, painting, paper manipulation and book sculpture in both two and three dimensions.
The Gallimaufry Collective are interested in not only cohesive outcomes to be exhibited, but also the artist process which they document extensively on their website.
