To complement her exhibition in the Naughton Gallery, Artist-in-Residence Gemma Anderson will host the first of two workshops, namely:
Exploring the shared forms and symmetries of animal, mineral and vegetable species through drawing
Combining artistic and scientific methodologies, this workshop explores the shared forms and symmetries of animal, mineral and plant specimens through drawing practice. Practiced in the gallery this workshop uses artworks and Anderson’s curated ‘Isomorphology cabinet’ of museum specimens as source material. This is a rare opportunity to get hands on experience of the Ulster Museum collections and to gain insight into the diversity of natural form through drawing.
