Jackie Stonehouse

Retrospective and recent work

Saturday 15 November – Thursday 11 December 2014

Jackie Stonehouse studied at Cleveland College of Art and Design before continuing her studies at Winchester School of Art. She worked as a well-established artist in North Yorkshire before moving to the North East and has exhibited throughout the region. Jackie teaches in schools and community centres when not pursuing her own work. She has worked as an artist demonstrator giving tuition to all ages and abilities.

Her own work is strong in composition and confident in the use of colour. Her approaches are as varied as her subjects, from landscapes to still life’s and figure drawing. She uses a variety of materials and techniques, each approach a fresh response to the materials and the subject.
Jackie’s work develops along the way rather than having an end in mind, this means that an idea can stop at a simple drawing or be pushed to the point of abstraction.

Open Art Studio

Mondays and Fridays 10am to 3:30pm at The Bridge

Openart Studio is a social prescription project focussing on enhancing mental health and wellbeing, where you can enjoy being creative in a relaxed atmosphere.

Professional artists are on hand at all times to help with your artistic interests in ceramics, textiles, printing, drawing and painting. You can stay for the day or just an hour – whatever works best for you.

Free of charge for eight weeks, Openart Studio is a chance to have lots of fun and make new friends. If you would like to continue after that, we ask for a small contribution.

For more information, please contact Bonnie Davies on 01325 244174 or If you would like to take part, please fill in the Openart Studio leaflet [pdf document] and bring it with you on the day.
