Community Art Group
During this project, Susan worked with members of the community including amateur artists and service users at Headway Worcestershire, offering them guidance to create their own artworks. Participants were encouraged to get creative and respond to the Art Gallery & Museum’s collection in their own style. Members of the group said of their experience:
The title of the piece is “Vessels”. I was thinking of the human body as a vessel and its connection with the Egyptian funerary vessels. This has really been a challenge for me as I have never done anything like this before, but it is very enjoyable. – Heather
I used the bright blue and yellow on the background to depict the desert with the black to show the demise of the intact tombs. I used pieces of bandage as if the mummy was being opened. The broken vessel shows the damage done. – Gayle
Really enjoyed doing it as I’ve never done anything like that before. – Clare
I must say, I wasn’t at all sure how this was all going to go when I said I’d join the project, but I am mighty pleased with how it’s gone! – Kim
