As part of Grace Eyre’s ongoing partnership work with Phoenix Art Space, Brighton, it was a great pleasure to welcome Ottilie Hainsworth, Phoenix artist, to one of our art sessions at Montefiore Road and for our Grace Eyre artists to meet and work with Ottilie as part of the Community Takeover at Phoenix this September.

Ottilie joined the Friday afternoon art session, bringing with her an interesting selection of art materials and natural objects which the group used for inspiration to make individual pages. These pages were then combined into a collective book.

Ottilie, Phoenix artist said:

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with the group at Grace Eyre, and Michael. The book of their artwork that I put together is now hanging proudly in the Phoenix Gallery”

Grace Eyre artists commented:

“I liked drawing the sea stones and the leaves.” – Mario

“I really enjoyed it. It was great doing it all together in the group.” – Rob

The book is now on display at the Grace Eyre Reception. Please drop in to say hello!
