We'll be creating beautiful travel journals, dancing to the salsa beat, immersing ourselves in the cultural magic of Antigua & Lake Atitlan. Our travel dates will take in "Day of the Dead – All Souls Day" one of the most colorful traditions of Guatemala, flying giant kites to communicate with their loved one who has passed on... a spectacular event to witness! No matter what level of artistic experience, we'll help you discover the creative spirit that resides within all of us! Space is limited – contact our office for details!!

Face Time at The Mall Galleries

16th - 21st June

'In partnership with Mall Galleries and The Threadneedle Foundation, The Art Room presents Face Time: An Exhibition in Aid of The Art Room, bringing together over 50 leading UK artists in a selling exhibition of individually designed clocks and original works of art.

Each year, The Art Room ask artists to create a piece of work, which they auction to raise funds for The Art Room charity. This year, artists who have contributed works include painters, sculptors, designers and photographers and big names of the contemporary British artistic scene.

With the patronage of HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, The Art Room provides art as therapy to 5-16 year old children who are experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. Clocks represent an important part of The Art Room’s own practice: the child’s transformation of regular items such as clocks, aprons and stools can help work towards increasing self esteem, confidence and introduces the children to a sense of empowerment through their own creativity.

Emmie's piece 'World Time' is based on a cohesion of buildings in the world that are apart and yet linked. The piece looked to embrace The Art Room's philosophy of encouraging the unique but unitedness of young people.

Interviewed on the art and travel website 'Wanderarti'

'Your paintings have a lovely unique, rustic style to them. How did this develop?'

I’m interested in old buildings, the characters who have lived there and who may live there in the future. A building as a storybook.

I worked on a project many years ago in a shantytown ‘Villa Maria’ in Peru, each day new people would arrive and set up home rising higher and higher into the barren mountains. They would use anything available to make their homes; bits of car doors, cardboard, packaging. I’ve always remembered and been inspired by this creativity in times of hardship.

New work is based on little villages in the Southern Alps many of them have hardly changed in the last few decades with perhaps only the addition of the odd telegraph pole, electric light and red tape. The houses stack up against each other like supports and are often built around the rocks. In this piece 'Ascros' different angles have been used and combined in one piece. These pieces will be exhibited by Quantum Gallery at The Hampstead AAF in June, who will be found near the entrance.

Work in Progress

News the shack

Emmie is based in the Alps for the time-being and working from the mountains and old buildings around. This piece 'The Pirate House' based on a hut in the woods, the outside of it covered in paintings from bygone inhabitants, old fashioned damaged mountain equipment and other strange miscellaneous objects. A river for water and solar panels for the electricity, the place has stories as do the people who pass through it. A fun place to work from though -12C at night you have to be tough to stay for long! A work in progress...
