Formed in 2018, Art Happens Here are a new studio collective of artists based at Community House in Malton. In this self-titled exhibition, each artist presents an element of their current practice. With some works still in progress and others more resolved, this exhibition highlights the need for artists to develop in a supportive arena where values and interests can be discussed and nurtured. The artists – Andy Black
, Kate Black
, Serena Partridge
, Rachel Renwick
, Sally Taylor
and Lyn Wait, see this exhibition, as an exploration of potential commonalities. The artists share a building from where they all work, but do their individual practices overlap and how might this exhibition contribute to their interconnectedness?
