Discover more about Morecambe Artist Colony (MAC) and their plans for the future on October 9 as well as viewing a hair-raising exhibition.
Established in 2014, MAC has 95 members and among their projects have been The Time & Tide Bell, installed on the Stone Jetty earlier this year.
The AGM at More Music in Devonshire Road, Morecambe between 6-8pm, will be a mix of the formal and informal including a presentation of the year in sound and vision, a look forward to MAC’s plans for 2020 and an open discussion on the future.
The evening will also include a communal singing of the Time & Tide Bell song, led by one of MAC’s founders, Pete Moser, and time for artists to meet and network, make new connections and start new collaborations.
There will even be a Bring & Buy sale where art can be sold or swapped.
The AGM is also an opportunity to view Ablaze! the first solo exhibition by MAC member, Ginny Koppenhol, which runs at the More Music Gallery until October 11.
This creative portraiture exhibition features local people with vibrantly coloured hair pictured in various Morecambe locations.
“It’s been a fun theme that allowed me to explore colour, people’s personalities and the local area,” said Ginny who worked in mental health services for 14 years before setting up her photography business.
“I created a new concept for each portrait. All my subjects were volunteers who wanted to help out or try something new. None of them had posed for photos before and most didn’t know me beforehand.”
Ablaze! is open to view on weekdays from 10am–4pm. To book places for the MAC AGM go to https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/annual-general-meeting-of-the-morecambe-artist-colony-tickets-73559623815 or just turn up on the night.
