The eight artists exhibiting in Evolving Forces came together as a result of the Artist Teacher Scheme. This exhibition celebrates our journey over the last three years on the Artist Teacher Scheme MA in Education programme at Oxford Brookes University in which participants are encouraged to confront the barriers to developing their own practice; the title, Evolving Forces, embraces our progression within this challenge.
These artists come from a range of backgrounds and professional educational settings and their diversity is reflected in the exhibited works. Audience feedback is encouraged and integral to the exhibition, and it will play an important role in imminent research and reflection for each artist as they explore their creative practice.
Originally established in 1999, the Artist Teacher Scheme is an expanding national programme of continuing professional development courses devised by partnerships between galleries or museums and university schools of fine art, design and/or education to enable teachers to regain or develop their personal practice as artists in the context of the contemporary visual arts.
