Helen Snell gives an Artist Talk

We had the delight of welcoming a group of John Leggott's Foundation students to the galleries today. The group were being introduced to the various cultural spots around North Lincolnshire, and we were one of them!

Education at 20-21 thought it would be a great opportunity for the students to meet one of our exhibiting artists and luckily, Helen Snell has been on site for the last few days, installing her beautiful exhibition Burnt Out.

Helen very kindly took some time out to speak with the students about her practice, the artwork being installed and how she came to become an artist. Students asked questions and got to handle some very delicate and beautiful artworks.

This short and impromptu artist's talk is a great example of how flexible and spontaneous our Education Officer and staff can be in the gallery. Artist talks and tours are something that 20-21 already offer to schools and colleges as part of our Education Offer.

Helen Snell is delivering a paper sculpting workshop on Saturday 5th October, in our education room, by way of celebrating the opening of her much anticipated and highly ambitious Burnt Out exhibition. For a mere £25 you will work with a prolific and well known artist, be inspired by her intricate and beautiful artwork and go home with your own paper sculpture.
