From the studio floor to GALLERY WALLS

PUBLISHED: 10:46 10 November 2015 | UPDATED: 10:46 10 November 2015




A National Exhibition of art will be opening its doors in Ipswich this autumn, where it will be showcasing the collective artwork of local artists and art lovers, who live, work or derive inspiration from the region.


After its début in London, From the Studio Floor is the second in a series of exhibitions dedicated to bringing the works of artists together and spotlighting hidden talent. With the help of its sponsors, MLM, the exhibition has secured a venue in the heart of Ipswich, where it will be featuring a selection of new unseen conceptual works, etchings, sculptures, drawings and paintings.

Taking place over three days in November, the exhibition will provide an informal and relaxed setting, featuring a selection of new unseen conceptual works from 15-20 artists, which will be showcased in the gallery and available for the public to purchase.

“We launched From the Studio Floor at Anise Gallery in Bermondsey where we displayed a collection of various artwork from London artists. It was so successful, with such momentum building around the show, we wanted to grow the exhibition nationally,” said Jessica Oliver, Artist and Curator at From the Studio Floor.

Based in London, Jessica Oliver is a young artist from Suffolk and former Ipswich School pupil whose talent has caught the attention of many after being named the Artistic Spaces’ ‘One to Watch’ at the prestigious Mall Galleries’ FBA Futures 2015. Having studied classical painting in Florence, Italy, and after pursuing a degree in Fine Art Painting at City and Guilds of London Art School, Jessica is currently exhibiting in London and Suffolk and is curating the series of From the Studio Floor exhibitions.


Jessica continues: “The show will be tantalising the town with the recently completed works from artists’ studio floors as well as giving us a taste of what they will be working on next. With such a rich history of arts in the area, it’s a great opportunity to showcase what the region has to offer and provide artists with an opportunity to connect and platform new ideas and artworks.”

The exhibition is proudly sponsored by Ipswich-based MLM, whose roots are firmly embedded in the town throughout its growth into an international multidisciplinary engineering, environmental and building control consultancy.

From the Studio Floor will be open to the public from Friday, November 13 until Sunday, November 15 at Gallery 3, Cornhill, Ipswich. Entry to the exhibition is free.
