This exhibition, part of the Salisbury Art Trail, speaks to the lives of women who are ordinary or famous or somewhere in between.
Saturday 3 to Sunday 11 October 2015
Salisbury Plain Arts artists Heather Olsen and Tamsin Loveday will be exhibiting their work alongside the work of Tracy Satchwill, and Rosemary Mason.
Tamsin Loveday will be exhibiting a series of intimate visual artworks exploring ideas of the feminine and of women ‘holding things together’. Her works comprise of print and mixed media.
Heather Olsen uses a range of ceramic techniques to produce hand-thrown stoneware and hand-built earthenware work. She also creates raku smoke-fired pieces.
Rosemary Mason trained at the Glasgow School of Art. Though she has painted and drawn throughout her career as a mother and grandmother, this is the first time Rosemary has ever exhibited her work. Her works are a mixture of oil on canvas and pencil on paper.
Tracy Satchwill is a collage artist, illustrator and designer who juxtaposes dreamlike stories against a historical narrative so that the documentation of real events interacts with a fanciful, decorative aesthetic. Her artwork consists of a four-panel digital collage inspired by stained glass windows. Tracy’s exhibition Magna Carta Women will be on display at Sarum College for the duration of the art trail.
The Salisbury Art Trail runs from Saturday 3 October to Sunday 11 October.

Sarum College is venue number 22 on the trail and our exhibition is free and open daily from 9am to 5pm. The full art trail brochure can be viewed online on the Salisbury Plain Arts website.
