An artist talk between Gallerist Jennifer Gilbert and artist Lucy Jones, to hear how her disability has not stopped her gaining recognition.

About

Earlier this year the Jennifer Lauren Gallery carried out research into what disabled artists felt was currently missing and what they would like to see happen to help them along the way. One of the things that came out of the research was a desire to hear from disabled artists who have become more established and accepted into the mainstream contemporary art world. Therefore Jennifer would like to invite you to join her on a journey to find out more about how disabled artists have achieved recognition in the mainstream art world. Through a series of talks, these artists will share with you the path to their success including how they overcame barriers and helped to change a few mindsets along the way. After each talk, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. You may want to hear more about how to break down barriers, avoid the pitfalls, and find the best way to navigate through the art world. There is no such thing as a silly question and if you want to know the answer then Iā€™m sure other people will be thinking the same thing. Come and join Jennifer for these talks, which she hopes will bring about interesting discussion.

The first is on Tuesday 8 December 2020 at 11am for one hour on zoom, with acclaimed artist Lucy Jones, who is represented by Flowers Gallery. The talk will be live with time for questions. BSL interpretation is provided as well as a live transcript through otter.ai ā€“ should you have any other access requirements please let me know. PLEASE BOOK YOUR FREE PLACE THROUGH THE EVENTBRITE LINK.

A little about Lucy: ā€œI am a painter working on the borders of Wales. My work has been a journey through my life. Looking out at the world, originally London and now the landscape. Self-portraiture has been the other side of my practice reflecting on how the world sees me, with my tongue in cheek and with humour. Recently I have picked up again on portrait work, with a searing honesty, mainly of people who I know extremely well.

My dyslexia and cerebral palsy have been my advantage as whether a landscape, self-portrait or portrait painting, I am after the nub, essence and truth, I strip things bare."
