‘Necessity is the Mother of Invention (by a wandering artist)’  
Saturday April 13th  
Illustrated talk with artist Constance Slaughter
Painter, sculptor & installation artist
Venue: Centre for Science & Art Lansdown Stroud GL5 1BB
Tickets: £5 (£4 members) book online or pay on the door £5.50 (£5.00 members)
Doors open at 2 pm talk starts at 2.30 pm

 

Constance Slaughter will talk about her journey into art from un-cool mother of three small boys to exhibiting artist via art school, good and not-so-good shows. Constance is a painter, sculptor and installation artist. She makes sculptures of child-toy-animal figures with wire and semi-transparent fabric. Her work is both funny and dark, exploring memory and absence through a semi-figurative representation of childhood games, songs and stories. The child-toy-animal-figures also feature in her strangely unsettling paintings.

Constance's talk, with lots of images and a sense of humour, will address what it takes to exist as a working artist, what we define as success and how artists keep going in a tough environment, seeking the right people and making things happen both within and outside the ‘Art World’.
