    "Citywing Artist on a Plane project"



    CITYWING is generously supporting an initiative to bring talented artists to the Island during Island of Culture 2014.

    ‘Artist on a Plane’ will see a different creative talent visiting the Island every month during the Arts Council’s year-long cultural celebration, which is being launched today.

    The scheme to fly in artists is the idea of Helen Fox, Programme Manager for Art, Design and Media at the Isle of Man College of Further and Higher Education. She approached Citywing, which was delighted to fund return flights from the UK for the visiting artists.

    Helen explained: ‘The idea came about through a discussion with our BA honours Fine Art degree external examiner, Keith McIntyre.

    ‘Keith, who is Head of Art at Northumbria University, visited the Island in November to launch the Market Hall Project, in which the College and Douglas Borough Council are jointly creating a community arts hub in Market Hill, Douglas. He has kindly agreed to return in January to kick-start Artist on a Plane.

    ‘The idea is that visiting artists will talk about their work, sharing with us their own journeys,’ Helen said. ‘We have a great mixture of artists coming to talk about a wide range of areas, not just painters. All talks will be free and open to students, teachers, artists – in fact anyone who is interested. Details will be published as each artist is booked.’

    Helen continued: ‘It is generous of Citywing to sponsor this scheme. It is going to be great to have this drip feed of expertise, fresh faces and new ideas. It is difficult for people to visit exhibitions and access talks off the Island so it is brilliant that, thanks to Citywing’s support, we can bring the artists to us.’

    David Buck, Managing Director of Citywing, said: ‘Island of Culture 2014 promises to be a fabulous celebration of the Isle of Man, its art and the creativity of its people. We are very proud to be playing our part by bringing visiting artists to the Island throughout the year.

    ‘Island of Culture will be an opportunity for those involved in the cultural life of the Island to share their passions with an even wider audience, including many visitors from outside the Isle of Man, and for the Island to welcome performers and artists to our shores to discover our richly diverse culture. Citywing is honoured to be involved.’

    Meanwhile, Helen said: ‘Depending on the visiting artists’ commitments, it’s hoped they’ll stay and stage some workshops while they are here and we’d welcome support for that initiative, too.’

    ‘Objects from the past’ artist makes flying visit

    AN artist who takes objects from the past and paints on them contemporary land and seascapes is the next guest in the Citywing ‘Artist on a Plane’ series of public lectures.

    David Cass’s talk at the Market Hall, Douglas, on Thursday 10th April, 7pm, is the second in a year-long series organised by the Isle of Man College of Further and Higher Education to mark Island of Culture 2014.

    The 26-year-old Scot graduated with first class honours from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010, receiving the Royal Scottish Academy’s John Kinross Scholarship to Florence, Italy. The academy holds six of his works in its permanent collection.

    David has spent time working in Italy, Belgium and France and has exhibited at home and abroad. He has pieces in private collections all over the world.

    His first full-scale solo exhibition, Years of Dust and Dry, took place at The Scottish Gallery in June 2013 and featured 200 object-based artworks, created over three years and displayed not just on walls but on tables, shelves and stacked boxes to create the atmosphere of a flea market or antique fair.

    David said: ‘One of the key determinants in my practice is the notion of a sense of place. My artworks are snapshots, fleeting glimpses, simplified depictions of city, coast, sea and land painted upon fragments of the past.’

    David has won numerous art awards and was shortlisted, with his work included on the touring exhibition, in the prestigious Sunday Times Watercolour Competition in 2012.

    The lecture is free to attend.

    While he’s in the Island, David will also work with students taking art degrees at the College.
