Supported by SAW’s Artist Development Programme, a number of artists received bursaries and financial support to develop their projects. The artists carried out research around their own areas of interest and worked with arts venues and organisations in Somerset to reach their audiences through presenting work in this year’s Art Weeks Festival.


PROJECT BURSARIES LUCIA HARLEY


SOMERSET ARTIST-LED


In 2018, Lucia participated in a series of discussions ‘Disclosures and Dialogues’ at Hestercombe Gardens, which led to conversations with her Father, a botanist living in Brazil. These conversations about the connections between art and science took her on a journey through taxonomy, DNA, and the individuality of plants. The bursary supported Lucia to research her ideas, and to explore the process and outcomes through presenting her work at the Festival.


Lucia studied at the Art School in Sao Paulo. She has worked on many socially engaged arts projects including Parks for People project, Sydney Gardens, Bath, (2017-18) luciaharleyworks.portfoliobox.net


Venue 79: Selwood Studio, Baker Street, FROME, BA11 3EP


PENNIE ELFICK


In the last couple of years, Pennie started to develop a new body of work in 3D form, including free-standing outdoor pieces and wall- hanging sculptures. The bursary supported her to acquire new skills, work with specialists, and pursue a new way of working. For the Festival Pennie is presenting her research, including a collection of sculptures, paintings, drawings and a video which are responses to her time at Clayhill.


Pennie received an MA in painting from Wimbledon School of Art. She has always been interested in abstraction and often uses geometric shapes, spaces and lines, representing the transient nature of light in the surroundings; these act as ciphers, encoding the components of a landscape. pennieelfick.co.uk


Venue 133: Clayhill Arts, Clayhill Farm, Charlynch Lane, BRIDGWATER, TA5 2PH


46 #culturematters LOTTE SCOTT


Lotte received SAW’s support to realise ‘A Long Hundred’, an installation at the Abbot’s Fish House in Meare. Before receiving the bursary, she had already spent six years researching the peat moors of the Somerset Levels, exploring the prehistoric archaeology and history of peat cutting on the Avalon Marshes. The bursary enabled her to work in collaboration with Natural England and English Heritage, and covered the production cost of her installation.


Lotte was born in 1990 and grew up in Castle Cary. She was awarded a BA in Art Practice from Goldsmiths University and an MFA in Sculpture by the Slade School of Art. She now lives in Frome. lottescott.co.uk
