Displayed throughout YSP Centre, Editions and Objects features some of the most well respected artists, designers and makers working in the UK today – many of whom are showing at the Park for the first time as well as a few familiar faces. Selected by Amanda Peach, Retail Programme & Development Manager at YSP, and Simon Lewin, co-founder of St Jude’s, the exhibiting artists are Jonathan Ashworth, Christopher Brown, Chloë Cheese, Melvyn Evans, Jonathan Gibbs, Peter Green OBE, Katy Hackney, Mark Hearld, Angie Lewin, Karen Mabon, Charles Shearer, Terry Shone and Emily Sutton.
Working with the theme of editions and multiples, each artist will show a selection of limited edition prints and objects – ranging from screen prints and lithographs, through ceramics and woodcuts, to jewellery and scarves – and new works created specifically for the exhibition.
All the works in the exhibition are available to buy, together with a series of three limited edition prints, individually designed by Mark Hearld, Angie Lewin and Emily Sutton. Printed by Penfold Press, the series is available exclusively from YSP.
Related special events include a wood engraving workshop with Angie Lewin on 30 and 31 July 2016. A range of exclusive merchandise, designed by Editions and Objects artists – including a tea towel and mug, tote bag, tin of pencil crayons and a notebook – also accompanies the exhibition.
Editions and Objects expands on an existing relationship between YSP and St Jude’s, two organisations committed to showcasing the work of inspirational artists. Founded by Simon and Angie Lewin in 2005, St Jude’s collaborates with an eclectic range of artists, including Mark Hearld, Ed Kluz and Emily Sutton, to create and print unique fabrics, cushion covers and wallpapers. St Jude’s were named winners in the Elle Decoration British Design Awards in both 2011 and 2012.
