Tess Gilmartin: Horse Big

Venue Bluecoat
Admission Free
Start Time 11:00
End Time 17:00

Bluecoat are delighted to share a new outdoor billboard commission by Tess Gilmartin. Gilmartin’s expressive work features brightly coloured animals and plants, drawing upon her experience of spending time outdoors.

Tess Gilmartin is a Wirral based visual artist. Gilmartin creates drawings and paintings inspired by the world around her. Using bright colour palettes and gestural mark making, Gilmartin makes art to celebrate the things she loves, such as the people, animals and flowers.

Gilmartin is a member of Blue Room, Bluecoat’s inclusive arts project for neurodiverse and learning disabled artists, and have been developing their practice in our supported studio project Studio Me. Through this Gilmartin has received mentoring from acclaimed artist, Tanya Raabe Webber. Together, the artists explored different methods of drawing, mark making and painting.

Studio Me: The Billboard Commissions will be featured on the side of Bluecoat’s building, located on Blundell Lane.

Free entry.
