Hampstead Printmakers – ‘from Scratch to Etch’ @ Lauderdale House
Oct 21 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

A show of Original Prints from Adult Printmaking Classes at Hampstead School of Art & Print NW6 Studio, curated by printmaking tutor Theresa Pateman.

The definition of an Original Print, as opposed to Giclée or Inkjet Print, is that the artist/printmaker would have some part in hand-making the final image, working from a surface or matrix of metal, wood, plastic, or card. Once ink is rubbed or rolled in/onto this matrix, the image can be transferred and reproduced onto any other surface – in this case paper.

“Scratching  and Etching” are processes used to create Intaglio Prints. All original prints, unlike Giclée Prints, require much more intervention and heartache grappling with these methods from start to finish.There are professionals and beginners alike within this collective, many of them are local to the area.

As a group they have shown at HSA, University Women’s Club, Millfield Art Centre, Burgh House & Kingsgate Workshops Gallery.

Techniques used in this show include: Drypoint, Etching, Mezzotints, Monoprints, Photo-etching and Relief Printing.

Shadowman: Surrealist Artworks by Patrick Hourihan @ Highgate Gallery

Night Music, by Patrick Hourihan.

Shadowman: Surrealist Artworks by Patrick Hourihan.  11– 24 October 2019

An exhibition about a Surrealist journey and its discoveries.

‘Inside Patrick Hourihan’s skull there nestles a mental coral reef alive with magical images of unknown dramas and unfamiliar conflicts.  His private world is as intense, as complicated and as visually captivating as anything the ocean reefs have to offer.  His technical wizardry allows him to explore this world of the unconscious and permits us to eavesdrop on its many perverse and contradictory scenes.  His work has the special merit of being instantly recognisable as his. No other artist comes close to his imagery.  An intrepid internal explorer, he is quite splendidly alone in his voyages of irrational beauty.’     Desmond Morris, April 2019.

This selection of paintings, drawings and boxed found objects represents the work of London-based Surrealist Patrick Hourihan.  He has used automatic drawing and other channels of accidental discovery as a way to unlock the poetic potential and sense of the Marvellous that awaits in seemingly mundane and unexpected situations of everyday life.  The spirit of the Shadowman exhibition seduces the viewer to look through newly opened windows with the dreamer’s innocent eye.

Patrick Hourihan is London born.  He studied at the Watford School of Art.  He has been creating imaginative worlds since childhood, leading to a love of Surrealism while at college.  He was, for a number of years, an active member of the Surrealist London Action Group (SLAG).

Anna Ovsyanikova and Chris Hotson- Violin and Piano Recital @ Lauderdale House
Oct 23 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Anna Ovsyanikova (violin)
Chris Hotson (piano)

The recital is based around the relatively unknown composer Mathieu Crickboom. He is the dedicatee of Eugene Ysaÿe’s sonata number 5, with which we open the recital. A colleague and friend of Ysaÿe, Chausson, Debussy, d’Indy amongst others, Crickboom dedicated his Esquisses Op. 1 to Ernest Chausson. We also include Chausson’s rarely performed “Pièce”. Crickboom’s unpublished work “Doux” concludes the first half.

After the interval we will perform Crickboom’s Ballade, Romance, as well as Enrique Granados’s sonata, and conclude the recital with Crickboom’s epic sonata for violin and piano.

Anna Ovsyanikova (violin) and Chris Hotson (piano) began playing together in 2006 while they were both students at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Since then Anna and Chris have given numerous recitals across the UK. Anna is pursuing a doctorate degree at the Royal College of Music, for which she is exploring the unknown music of Mathieu Crickboom.

Mathieu Crickboom (1871-1947) was a Belgian violinist, composer and pedagogue. Concert violinist, chamber musician (who have played second violin in Ysaÿe String Quartet – premiered Debussy’s string quartet; set up his own Crickboom String Quartet – premiered Chausson’s concert for violin, piano and string quartet; played trio with Enrique Granados and Pablo Casals), orchestral leader – at La Monnaie in Brussels, composer, editor of music, pedagogue – extensive list of students and several violin treatises, concert series organiser (he was in charge of Catalan Philharmonic society for 9 seasons), artistic director and contributor to the music magazine La Tribune Musicale in Brussels.

Oct 27 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

A show of Original Prints from Adult Printmaking Classes at Hampstead School of Art & Print NW6 Studio, curated by printmaking tutor Theresa Pateman.

The definition of an Original Print, as opposed to Giclée or Inkjet Print, is that the artist/printmaker would have some part in hand-making the final image, working from a surface or matrix of metal, wood, plastic, or card. Once ink is rubbed or rolled in/onto this matrix, the image can be transferred and reproduced onto any other surface – in this case paper.

“Scratching  and Etching” are processes used to create Intaglio Prints. All original prints, unlike Giclée Prints, require much more intervention and heartache grappling with these methods from start to finish.There are professionals and beginners alike within this collective, many of them are local to the area.

As a group they have shown at HSA, University Women’s Club, Millfield Art Centre, Burgh House & Kingsgate Workshops Gallery.
