For me the art comes alive when it lives through the eyes of other people, when they bring their stories to it. On Tuesday the 27th November I led an art discussion with several artists, in the current Artists Network Alpujarra group show that I’m participating in.

Upstairs at the old town hall, Órgiva, from 5–8pm

I asked the artists about their original intention and how they feel about the art now it has been made public. I then asked the public what they get from the art.

As an artists I find these stories fascinating and I enjoy hearing how other people read the art. I have recorded these talks and you can hear them as a podcast on the ANA website.

Participating artists include:

Emma Plunkett – my own brand of femininity
Gareth Lister – painting with mud
Klaus Schumacher – Egg tempera
Maxine Friday – watercolours
Michael Alexander – dancing zebra
Nikki Bee – assemblage art
Sylvia Krudenier – breaking rules with charcoal
Wes Somerville – architectural light sculptures
Yasmina Sky – a poignant installation about saving the planet.
