Artists At Work are a series of short films created by artists Kate Noble, Mark Parry and Bronwen Bradshaw. Each of the artists created short film about artists in Somerset to highlight the making process behind the artists' creativity, such as their inspiration, influence and environment. The aim is to raise the profile of the individual artists in Somerset and promote their practices. An exhibition is created at Brewhouse Theatre during Art Weeks 2010.
Mark Parry's large video installation work in the main gallery space conveys the perception of artistic process by referencing the widely differing approaches and work of a small number of Somerset artists.
Bronwen Bradshaw's Reading Room includes a video projection and a collection of handmade artists' books revealing the passion and skills of some of the artists in Somerset. The work is based on the process of book making from artists in different disciplines.
Kate Noble produced a series of short films and large format silver inkject prints focusing on 6 Somerset artists, showing the way they work and what inspires them.
Commissioned by Somerset Art Works (SAW), organised by SAW's Curatorial Services and supported by The Brewhouse
