We are pleased to announce a  research and development project named the Red Studio Enquiry which focuses on the work of painter Mary Potter (1900-1981).

This is our first post in a year ! we have been working away stetting up the enquiry – processing and developing ideas.

We will be spending four weeks in residence at the Red Studio, Mary Potter’s former home and studio situated in the grounds of the Red House, Aldeburgh. We are excited to be the first artists in residence there, giving us the unique opportunity to develop work and ideas from another artist’s working environment. We will conduct practice based research alongside developing discussion / conversation throughout the project with a focus on gender, place and the domestic.

We are delighted to have been awarded Arts Council England funding to support this period of research and development.

We will be tweeting and using Instagram throughout the project and posting here.
