‘Resident artist Orsi invited her friend Hazel Reeves sculptor to exhibit with her at the Fountain Gallery this year.
The idea of showing together was born a couple of years ago, and has been in the making ever since. We share more than the show: The enthusiasm about our work and our belief of integrity and importance of art (and all sorts of other things for that matter) created by women. A number of Orsi’s recent paintings are critical, some paying homage to the Suffragettes’ achievements’ by recalling ancient artefacts (Venus figures). Hazel is passionate about people and their stories, with figure and portrait commissions in bronze a speciality. She is the artist behind the monumental Sir Nigel Gresley statue at King’s Cross station and the joyful Cracker Packers’ statue in Carlisle that was unveiled on International Women’s Day, 8 March. She is now working on her statue of the Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst for St Peter’s Square, Manchester.
Meet the artists, Orsi and Hazel for a drink on Friday 15 June 6.30 -
