Shorelines Exhibition, Maclaurin Gallery, Ayr

13th November - 23rd December, Maclaurin Gallery, Ayr
Alison F. Bell and Cathy Treadaway
This exhibition of paintings, prints, photographs and textiles by artists, Alison F. Bell and Dr Cathy Treadaway, is an ongoing collaborative research project, which investigates creative practice. The exhibits are a response to five coastal locations in England, Scotland, Wales and Australia, and result from two research field studies and three artist residencies. The locations at St Just, Cornwall, Lavernock, South Wales, Bora, near Helmsdale, in Scotland, and Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, are linked by a common heritage in mining natural resources of coal, tin and precious metals. The artists created both collaborative works and personal pieces of work from their shared experiences of these specific places. Alison Bell is a doctoral researcher in the School of Creative and Cultural Industries at UWS and Cathy Treadaway is Reader in Creative Practice at University of Wales Insitute, Cardiff.

The Shorelines project is supported by Cardiff School of Art and Design, University of Wales Institute Cardiff, University of Newcastle New South Wales, Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, Bryons Veor Trust, and Timespan, Helmsdale, Scotland.
