COLOUR in VISION + Palmer and CRS Lectures
Wednesday 11 January 2017
|A whole day on colour vision - what a treat this annual meeting has now become. And City University has just completed a re-modelling of its central facilities and the meeting was held the new swish theatre that has a definitely un-swish name - B200.
Ten presentations, including the prestigeous Palmer Lecture and the sponsored CRS Lecture,comprised a day of discovery, revelation, enlightenment and a little controversy as speakers were thoroughly questioned about their findings and ideas.
The pictures show Palmer Lecturer Rhea Eskew (TOP LEFT) and his first slide (ABOVE LEFT) and the CRS sponsored lecturer Anna Franklin (TOP RIGHT) and her first slide (ABOVE RIGHT).
Abstracts are avalailable for download as PDF's.
JOINT MEETING WITH SOCIETY of DYERS
Wednesday 07 December 2016
|The Colour Group held a joint meeting with the Society of Dyers and Colourists at their gallery in
Bradford after a Christmas lunch at Bradford College.
First, Richard Ashworth (SDC) gave a presentation on understanding colour (LEFT). How many of us could figure out what colours these names represent?
|After a tour of the Colour Experience gallery (TOP) where wool samples were shown: from raw fibres to yarns to fabrics and range of products, e.g. a finished red wool product, Andrew Filarowski (SDC) took the audience through the whole process of wool and coloration.
Voted an interesting and informative afternoon.
THE COLOUR RED
Wednesday 07 December 2016
The Colour Red was the second official event by the Northern Chapter and was held in the medical school of Newcastle University in the lecture theatre. Hosted by Dr Gabriele Jordan and Professor Anya Hurlbert, the fascinating lectures covered everything about Red from anthropology to pigments to fashion to science. Guests were treated to Red refreshments afterwards and had a display of Red fashion designs and clothing from the fashion department of Northumbria University.
The newly formed Northern Committee is working hard to bring colour to the north! The picture shows the 'Red Team' relaxing after the event.
Private Viewing, Artists' Talks
09 November 2016 The first (official) event of The Colour Group (GB) Northern Chapter (that's quite the mouthful isn't it?) was wrapped up after a successful exhibition and private view! Around 40 people were welcomed into the Newbridge Project annex space, all with a common interest in creative practice centred around colour use. The artists with work on display were ALEX CHARRINGTON, SUSI BELLAMY, THERESA POULTON, HELEN SCHEL and MICHAEL CHIPPENDALE. They all have a particular relationship with the use of colour which they described at the private view.
