The next artists to visit will be The Boat Studio: they have renovated a working narrow boat that hosts arts residencies, exhibitions, performances and events, travelling by canal to different communities. Keith Wilson follows in March: his sculpture Roma, commissioned by Meadow Arts, can currently be seen at Worcester Woods Country Park.

Alison Wilding is ‘one of the most talented sculptors of her generation’, recently showing a sculpture as part of Meadow Arts exhibition Landscape With Machines at Ironbridge Gorge Museums and Mike Cooter has an international career with his mixed media work, which explores how narrative relates to objects.

The Garage Open Lecture Series is a collaboration between the University of Worcester’s School of Art’s ‘Fabrication Research Group’ and Meadow Arts in partnership with Worcestershire County Council and Worcestershire Arts Partnership. It presents a series of talks around aspects of research, fabrication and display

The talks take place at 5pm on Tuesdays in Lecture Room (TG008) at the University’s Garage Studios (behind Worcester News).
