Artist Talk - Alison Lowry and Angela Thwaites (TBC)

Free Artist Talk

During February and early March National Glass Centre is offering a series of early evening talks given by professionals from the creative industries including staff from the Faculty of Art Design and Media at the University of Sunderland. These talks will provide a range of case studies of the careers of professionals in the art and design field. The talks form part of the professional practice modules developed for BA (Hons) Glass and Ceramics students at the University of Sunderland based in the National Glass Centre but are also open to the public. This programme has been supported by the Institute for International Research in Glass (IIRG) and Ceramics Arts Research Centre at the University of Sunderland.

Please note these talks will take place at Lecture Theatre 007 of the Prospect Building on St Peter's Campus. 2 mins walk from National Glass Centre.

Alison Lowry's talk sees the artist explain how she uses glass in an attempt to understand herself and explore the world around her. Glass, with all its inherent contradictions, is the ideal mirror to investigate the human condition.

'Prior working with glass in 2008 I would have called myself a textile artist. When I began working with glass I looked at how objects and clothing can embody memory. More recently, I am considering where memory comes from (within the brain) and am taking a more collaborative approach with help from a medical researcher from kings college london.'
