Past event

This is the first of three residencies at the Minories by artists from Cuckoo Farm, an collection of artists' studios on a farm just north of Colchester.

Over the course of three weeks, Clare will create an over-indulged farmyard in response to paintings of prize animals from the Victor Batte-Lay Foundation Collection.

Clare is welcoming visitors to join in with the process, and the gallery is open to visit and take part during gallery opening times.
