Carole Shepheard, Out of the Shadows: a print journey with Carole Shepheard and friends
Monday 6 September - Friday 3 December

In this programme, we will explore the artwork in Carole Shepheard’s retrospective exhibition, Out of the Shadows: a print journey with Carole Shepheard and friends. Carole is a well-known and celebrated printmaking artist, with a long and varied career.

Out of the Shadows is a celebration of both printmaking as a medium and Carole’s artistic journey thus far. She is joined by fellow printmaking artists including Dame Robin White, Fatu Feu’u and more.

A key theme of this exhibition is to do with memory, and we will explore this in depth in this session. We will question memory and reliability, what how and why things are remembered and how memory can never be the absolute truth – all using Carole’s artworks as examples. We also will examine the ways in which Carole weaves feminist discourse into her practice.

We will think about how memory can stimulate the imagination, and in the classroom, create an artwork based on a fantastical dream or favourite memory!
