Creative Bursary: Earthlight

Gracefield Arts Centre (Gallery 2 Room 2)
28 May, then 31 May – 5 June

Ruth Elizabeth Jones and Emma Varley present Earthlight, a collaborative temporal installation supported by the Spring Fling Creative Bursary.

The Creative Bursary supports artists and makers to develop and present new work at Spring Fling which enables experimentation and risk taking. It aims to create space for work which may not fit within the traditional realm of an “open studio” setting.

The Bursary has been awarded to Ruth Elizabeth Jones & Emma Varley, who will be presenting Earthlight at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries during Spring Fling 2022.

Earthlight (series) is a collaborative temporal installation combining ceramics with projected digital drawings, exploring tradition and technology whilst evoking feminine forms.

Find out more about Ruth Elizabeth Jones and Emma Varley’s individual practices in the virtual studios.

At 2pm each day during the Spring Fling weekend (2 – 5 June), Ruth and Emma will offer interactive workshops where you can create a vessel from porcelain and place it within a light field of digital drawing, generating an ever-changing artwork. Workshops are free, but spaces are limited, and you will need to book here. Age 12+.
