Christopher Coppers

I was recently sent an email directing me to look at work by Christopher Coppers.

Coppers creates three dimensional pieces using magazines which he cuts to reveal their many layers and colours.

Welcome Home

Today I visited Welcome Home, "a multi-disciplinary gallery and retail space, based in Glasgow's west end, with an onsite studio space for production, artist in residence schemes and workshops.

Focused on making art, design and craft accessible to all, it provides a space for new designers and members of the public to create, learn and educate. The site sources unique and interesting work from local, established and emerging artists and designers, as well as bringing new talent to Scotland from elsewhere. Loosely based around the idea of rooms in a house - the site hosts exhibitions in the 'drawing room', workshops in the 'studio', books in the 'library', jewellery in the 'dressing room', and so on. The name Welcome Home also comes from the idea of having everything under one roof.

The current exhibition features work by a number of illustrators who have produced prints. There was a good variety, and all on sale at very reasonable prices.

I will certainly be 'heading home' more often.

Anna Emilia

I was recently sent an email with a link to Anna Emilia's website and blog, and really enjoyed her drawings in the 'Spring is coming' series.
