Art teacher who is used to helping others is to hold her own exhibition

by Tom Martin (September 2021)

An artist from Burscough who specialises in abstract art will have her work displayed in her own exhibition.

Amanda Clark-Price’s distinctive artwork will be on display at the ArtHouse, on Eastbank Street, Southport, from September 29 to October 9.

Amanda has always been keen to pass her skills onto others at her classes at Southport Contemporary Arts and in online workshops.

After many years developing artwork in others, Amanda is now really enjoying having the space to focus on producing her own distinctive work for the exhibition.

She said: “I had always produced artwork to support my teaching practice but now have the time to develop work for myself.

“Most of the work in this exhibition is abstract in nature. I wanted to explore layers, colours and mixing of media.

“I use drawing, collage, print, acrylic, watercolour, papier-mâché, pencil and pen in my mixed media pieces and I also enjoy ‘just’ pencil”.

Recently, Amanda joined with the Ainsdale Discovery Centre as part of the national ‘Back From the Brink’ programme with their own ‘Gems in the Dunes’ project along the Sefton coast.

She said: “I ran three online workshops during lockdown designed so that people who had little or no art equipment and materials could take part.

“One was drawing just using pencil and kitchen roll or tissue, another painting with coffee and the last one scribbling with black pen. We had some great results. I supplied images of the dunes at Ainsdale and we completed the work over Zoom.”

The ArtHouse is open from Tuesday to Friday from 10am-3pm and Saturday from 11am to 4pm.
