Pick of the Week 2014

January's Guest Editor: Jane Lowry

Image: Weekend Shift: BACK LANE WEST at STRYX, Birmingham: residency exchange 2013/14

Every month we invite a guest editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This January we welcome Jane Lowry, Co-director of BACK LANE WEST (BLW) as our Guest Editor:

Jane Lowry co-directs BACK LANE WEST (BLW), an artist-led residency and project space in Redruth, Cornwall, with Patrick Lowry, who founded the space with two other artists in 2009. BLW’s aims are to support and encourage critically engaged visual art practice and artists' professional development, while contributing to the growth of a nationally and internationally connected, cultural community and network in the south west.

We increased the range of our programme at BLW last year to include national and international resident artists, as well as regional. We also developed a new Exchange programme, initially with PAC Home and KARST in Plymouth, and STRYX in Birmingham. Plans for 2014/15 are to develop these links, collaborations, and exchanges further, both nationally and internationally, in order to provide both developmental pathways for regional artists, and to bring national and international artists to Cornwall’s cultural community.
