Adele Karmazyn

Adele is a York based Montage Artist. Her love of antiquities, weathered surfaces and nature are the foundations of her work. Collecting 19th century photographs is where the journey begins, taking the person out of that era and into a new world and time. The costumes, colours and stories of the Victorian era are her inspiration. Adele studied for her B.A.(Hons) Degree in Textile Art at Winchester School of Art. She went on to completing a diploma in book illustration which brought her back to the use of photoshop which is now her main tool.

Venue: Bellebeck Cottage, Beckside

Mick Kirkby-Geddes

I make sculptures to go indoors, outdoors, do commissions and work in lots of schools. I like to re-use junk metal and give it a new lease of life in my work, it’s like a personal mission not to see anything go to waste. Mixed together with new metal these discarded objects live again as parts of sculptures of animals and birds, in fact anything really. The ideas come from cartoons, children’s books, tv programmes and quite often the shapes of the original objects themselves.

Venue: Roraima House
