On Friday 24 September 2021 our Girl Friday Breakfast Club speaker will be artist Pauline Scott-Garrett on Friday 24 September at 8.30am (GMT). More information and how to book for this free online event cane be found here.
Pauline Scott-Garrett is a visual artist who uses printmaking and found materials to deconstruct and assemble pieces of work which are delicately balanced between 2D and 3D. Her work uses delicate layering of print and recycled paper which present multiple possibilities of interpretation hovering between context, meaning and visual impact.
Pauline graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in Fine Art Painting followed by a scholarship to the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna and an MA in Painting at Chelsea School of Art. A founder artist-trustee of Sheffield’s creative industries project Yorkshire Artspace (now based at the Persistence Works), her work is included in Sheffield’s visual arts collection. Further postgraduate study in cultural management at City University London led to several roles including the commissioning of Milton Keynes Theatre and Gallery, and the Director of Royal Pavilion, Brighton.
On moving to the South West she restarted her creative practice and in 2020, she completed Spike Island Print’s year-long Press Play designed to support artists to sustain working practice and develop research strategies. She coordinated a large-scale exhibition of their work at Kosar Contemporary, Bristol which focused on precarity, transience and shift taking place in November 2020 between lockdowns. This then led to her collaboration with a number of Bristol-based artists on a 3-month residency in a large Victorian house in Clifton, Bristol, “HOUSE”, which has focused on themes of loss, displacement and exile, and resulted in the creation of several large-scale installation pieces by her and the other artists. From 9 October 2021 to 21 November 2021, Pauline's exhibition, Fragments of Wealth, willl be on hsow at Drawing Projects UK.
The Girl Friday Breakfast Club was established by Kate Reynolds and Anita Taylor in 2018 to provide a friendly and informal space for women to meet and to hear from an interesting woman speaker, eat breakfast and drink great coffee or tea together at Drawing Projects UK on the last Friday of each month. We held our first online Girl Friday in October 2020 after realising we had longer to go before we could gather again for breakfast due to lockdown. We aim to retain the informal format, and events are not recorded, so do book to join in - and bring your own breakfast - or lunch or supper depending on where you are in the world!
