Coinciding with major celebrations and events nationwide, on the 4th June 2018, Blott Studio will be hosting an exhibition entitled 'Marking the Martyrs', marking the death of Emily Wilding Davison, the first martyr to the Suffrage cause.

About

The exhibition will focus on the sacrifices our foremothers made and the ongoing struggle that women still face, and will feature work produced by seven regional and international artists, including Hazel Reeves, MRBS SWA FRSA, winner of the Emmeline Pankhurst sculpture commission 2017, who will be exhibiting one of her acclaimed maquettes of Emmeline, titled ‘Rise up Women.’
On Saturday June 2nd at the Preview event, there will be a town centre ‘Suffragette’ choral parade to attract the general public’s attention, encourage engagement with the project and increase awareness of women’s history.
Throughout June there will be community workshops taking place to create sashes for the event which will help to bring ‘history to life’, and contributing artists will be on hand to talk to the public on the run up to, and throughout, the exhibition.
On June the 8th, award winning artists Sarah Maple and Meg Mosley will be debuting a new live performance as their collaborative alter-egos #MeggyAndMapes.
‘An evening with #MeggyAndMapes', a take on the classic male comedy duo and will be looking with a satirical eye at how we 'perform' gender.
The exhibition will reflect the diverse nature of feminist interpretations through a mix of highly varied work. Artists include Zoe Cox, Jo Harrison, Sarah Maple, Meg Mosely, Hazel Reeves, Corrine Streetly and Tina Warren.
