Private Art Studio Visits booking now - July 2021

Welcome back to private studio visits!

I’m so excited to be able to welcome you back to private studio visits! After the devastating fire at Krowji and huge periods with restrictions on opening up workspaces, and with Open Studios cancelled for the second time, I am keen to share my work with you.

An art studio visit is the perfect way to view art and get to know the artist, their work and processes and the ideal environment in which to view and buy art. Dealing directly with the artist you can see uncurated back catalogues, pieces that haven’t been published and really get a feel for a piece and experience it.

Getting the full creating experience.

My studio contains work in progress, reference pieces, finished works that are set aside for exhibiting or professional development, plus works that I am ready to release. In my environment I enjoy telling people about  processes and demonstrating how my work comes into being.

What to expect when you visit my studio.

In my own creating space it’s a relaxed environment. At present we have to adhere to social distancing, wearing masks and hand sanitising, but through Open Studios and my recent exhibition this has become easier to manage. If you’d like to learn more there is a section in this article about Covid protocol at Krowji. I’ll make you a coffee, we’ll chat about my work and if you’re interested, there will be some work available that you can buy including my ply panels, gloss paintings, larger oil and acrylic paintings, giclee art prints and Christmas baubles.  What’s for certain is that you might see something that isn’t on my website or the online shop

And if I want to buy something?

I’ll pack it and you can take it with you, or if it’s bigger we can organise delivery. We can discuss commissions too. I have card payment facilities, invoicing/ bank transfer, PayPal and other payment options.

So book a studio visit and see what might inspire you!

    Trudie Moore Art Studio

    A new blank canvas

    Some more big news for me! I’ve taken a leap and moved into a much bigger studio space in the phase 2 development in Krowji!
    My new studio in the new phase 2 development of Krowji will enable me to continue creating my large scale paintings, and experiment with immersive elements of colour and scale within three dimensional painting installations so that I can innovate within my practise.

    Space to expand

    my professional practise

    So it’s been a busy week but after some floor painting of the new space, removals and redecorating of my small space in studio 108 I spent some time yesterday zoning my new studio so that I can work from the floor to easel to wall to trestles.. and there will be interesting things hanging from the ceiling!
    You’ll now find me in studio 121, Percy Williams Building just along the corridor and over the bridge from my old space. I’m open to private studio visits once restrictions are lifted so please contact me to book your visit!

    Krowji Christmas Open Studios 2020

    EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO LOCKDOWN – Krowji Christmas Open Studios was currently planned for 27/28/29th November 2020 and has now been cancelled.

    Krowji’s Christmas Open Studios have been cancelled by majority vote by the participants. Because an alternative date cannot be certain, this year the Christmas Open studios event will be too difficult to reschedule. Many of the artists and makers will be selling online or taking orders for collection as an alternative. The Krowji social media pages and website will promote makers works.

     

    Visit Trudie Moore’s artist studio by private appointment after lockdown

    Subject to restrictions, I am accepting bookings for socially distanced private views of works in my studio and appointments throughout the coming winter months as well as the Open Studios usual drop-in format. Please contact me to find out the latest situation.

    For my part, my website shop is still up and running. I have for sale original paintings, prints, Christmas baubles, painting studies and my back catalogue. I am working to bring the website shop up to date with all of the other items that are not listed on it however, please get in touch with me for a PDF price list while I do this.

    Smaller original paintings that are easy to post are currently for sale on my website shop but if there is something you have seen at a previous exhibition, open studio visit or on my social media accounts, please get in touch with me and I can send information and prices and arrange delivery and payment.

    I am offering private studio visits, in line with distancing measures (for example, if the rules state that you must not come to my space, we will arrange a date when you will be allowed, as of 5th November, Krowji’s rules are that visitors are not allowed inside the premises, but collection of pieces that takes place outdoors, would be OK).

    Collections and delivery

    Orders can be placed on my website for collection or delivery. If necessary, a courier can be arranged for delivery or I can deliver works in person within an acceptable distance. Work can be reserved with a deposit or paid for in advance and collected when restrictions ease.

    I can arrange for anything that is not on the website that you may have seen through social media, or in website posts, or at the summer Open Studios to be available for sale. I have a card reader for contactless payments, or you can pay by bank transfer, cash, PayPal in person or in advance by invoice.

    The best way to see original art is in person, with the artist – book a studio visit later in December

    Studio Visits are a brilliant way for you to see my work, my art is meant to be enjoyed by the natural eye for the greatest benefit of the colour, scale, textures, lines, edges, transparencies, surfaces. You can’t get a good enough impression of my paintings from an online image as it’s very hard to convey the experience. Coming to see me in person in the studio where you can come simply to chat and find out more will offer so much more.

    To receive latest news or get previews of new works sign up to my email list here.

    Seen something you like that’s not in the shop?

    If there is a piece of my work you have seen online either through my website, social media or through my old blog or old website, I can bring it to the studio for viewing. My back catalogue is in storage and not everything has been photographed, so if there is something you like and want to know if I have more of, I can email through images.

    Like something but it’s the wrong size, colour or you have an idea for a variation or a specific place?

    Likewise if you would like to discuss a commission or a project, I can compile examples for discussion and meet you to show you more!  Here is some further information on Commissions and projects and an outline on what you can achieve by commissioning an artist.

      Update Gray's Wharf Residency 1st September - 12th October 2020

      Latest plans for my Grey's Wharf Residency 1st September - 12th October 2020

      This is an invitation to join me virtually in my art practise as I embark on a 6 week programme of scaling up and generating new paintings that break through the boundaries in my current work.

      I’ll be occupying this beautiful studio at Grey’s Wharf on the river in Penryn undertaking an artists studio residency. I will be documenting the residency, my painting processes and development and creating a new, exhibitable body of paintings. I will be sharing my progress by streaming, blogging, taking video, and updating on my website and social media channels.

      At the end of the event I will be creating an exhibition of the new work.

      This is the first residency offered by Grey’s Wharf and I am very lucky to have been awarded this opportunity.

      We aim to enable artists to develop their practice by providing a space to explore concepts, experiment with scale and materials, test ideas or take a new direction. We offer a supportive, professional creative community with 20 practitioners based in individual and shared studios as well as additional gallery and events spaces.

      Through the residency I hope to:

      • Push the boundaries and take risks to advance my work.
      • Create a three dimensional experiential environment, amplifying the planes of colour (paintings as an installation to surround the viewer) with more 3 dimensional paintings that explore the use of different ‘canvas’ materials
      • Make work that literally pops out of the canvas, transitions out of the canvas and is on and off the walls, the canvas and other three dimensional pieces around the room.

      The residency offers me space in which to both do some big paintings, and also to stand back to review, critique and judge them. As a part of the residency, I am lucky to be able to gain critical feedback from artist practitioner Naomi Frears who is not only a hugely successful professional visual artist, but also tutor at the St Ives School of Painting.

      I have already been starting to work out what I need to order to achieve a project over the 6 week period. I’ve downloader an AR (Augmented Reality) app to help with planning for the space and to help me to visualise the end result I might achieve. This is a jump forwards in my process from simply jumping in to ‘doing’ from my head or from a quick sketch. I’m investigating the processes that interior designers use to show prospective designs to clients (and if you are an interior designer reading this, then please do get in touch with me if you are happy to share your tips!). I hope to be able to post visualisations prior to the finished work being created.

      Having visited Grey’s Wharf Studios yesterday I now have canvases to order, suppliers to research, materials to test and decisions to make as to what the end result is going to be.

      Get Involved!

      Trudie Moore abstract painting geometric 2018

      Open Studios Cornwall 2020

      Open Studios Cornwall is from 29th August to 6th September 2020.

      Open Studios Cornwall is a coordinated Cornwall-wide event where artists from all over Cornwall open their studios at the same time, 

      creating a county wide festival of art, design and craft.

      More than 200 artists, designers and makers are taking part in the Open Studios, 30 of those are located at Krowji in Redruth and so if you plan to visit me in my studio there, you will be able to see an even bigger selection of the wealth of creative talent Cornwall has to offer all in one place.

      I am aiming to create a gallery-level experience during this event, so whilst you might have been missing the pleasure of visiting exhibitions and galleries for contemporary art in the spring and summer this year, I will be bringing a feeling of this to you through my plans for an integration of in person, virtual (videos & documentation) and connecting with me live through a stream of me at work.

      Visit Trudie Moore’s artist studio in August and September

      Because we have had a little longer to prepare for the new dates of this event, I have come up with more of an experiential format for the event incorporating exhibition, private views and appointments, online (virtual) videos, a documentation experience streamed from my live residency and, of course, the usual drop-in format.

      On show at my studio at Krowji, Redruth –

      Gallery style exhibition, private appointments, drop-ins at the main event and a live stream to my residency.

      Open studios are a brilliant way for you to see my work, my art is meant to be enjoyed by the natural eye for the greatest benefit of the colour, scale, textures, lines, edges, transparencies, surfaces. You can’t get a good enough impression of my paintings from an online image as it’s very hard to convey the experience (one of the reasons I have started doing talk-through videos on IGTV – Instagram TV, so show and describe the work). So coming to see me in person in the studio where you can come simply to chat and find out more will offer so much more.

      I will be showing a selection of recent and older work, and I will have pieces for sale to take away with you.

      Come and have a chat with me about my work, how I work, what my work is about, buy a painting or even give me critical analysis! I have loads to talk about, The Christmas Open Studios at Krowji delivered some really deep and insightful conversations that were enjoyed immensely on both sides.

      A virtual window into the creation of my newest work – streaming from my residency 1st-4th September

      I will be working from a residency in Penryn on the weekdays of Open Studios and so I am working to create an online journal/ diary of me at work on my new project. The residency commences on 1st September and runs until 12th October and so you will see me via a stream, blog, video and IGTV in the studio there between 1st to 4th September and be able to chat to me on 5th and 6th about it, and my ambitions for the future in person at Krowji (Studio 108c!).

      This will be an additional experience to visiting me in Krowji as my space in Krowji is small it doesn’t allow room both for showing work in progress as well as visitors and exhibition/ viewing and so by making my big residency project available by documenting it online, not only will you be able to share in the experience of this online documentation (and I will be collecting the documentation by way of a critical aspect of my work) but you will also be able to get an insight into the future of my work, it’s direction and the ambition and scale I have for it. I will be aiming to set up a screen in my studio to show me at work at the times I’m not present at Krowji.

      If you are still in Cornwall, or back in Cornwall in mid October 2020 I am hoping to hold a Private View of the new work. To be invited to this please request to sign up to my email list here.

       

      Collect website orders from me in person

      If there is a piece you would like to buy in advance of the event, you can buy it through the website and collect it at Open Studios either when I am there, or by appointment. The website has a PayPal payment gateway and takes all mainstream card payments. If there is something you wish to reserve and pay by bank transfer or cash, please get in touch with me.

      Seen something you like that’s not in the shop?

      If there is a piece of my work you have seen online either through my website, social media or through my old blog or old website, I can bring it to Open Studios for viewing. My back catalogue is in storage and not everything has been photographed, so if there is something you like and want to know if I have more of, I can email through images.

      Like something but it’s the wrong size, colour or you have an idea for a variation or a specific place?

      How I will be opening my studio to visitors for Open Studios Cornwall

      Because the dates for Open Studios moved back from May to August, the dates now run at the same time as my residency at Grey’s Wharf in Penryn.  Here is how I will be opening up my studio:

      • I will be opening physically over the two weekends of Open Studios Cornwall in my studio at Krowji and so I will be present to welcome visitors into my space.
      • My space will be open when there are other artists present in my space as a gallery exhibit. I am hoping to be able to show the video/ my blog on some manner within my space and there will be contact cards to make an appointment to see me and there will be pieces hanging in the hallway to look at.
      • I will be opening virtually in two ways:
        • By updating my blog from my residency to show the progress I am making on the residency and by posting on Facebook and Instagram
        • By creating a video tour that will be uploaded to You Tube
      • By taking bookings to meet you at Krowji for an appointment

      Drop in and Visit me at Krowji on 29th & 30th August 2020

      Make an appointment with me for a studio visit during Open Studios 2020 on weekdays

      Available Hours: 9am – 8pm Monday to Friday

      I will be taking bookings to show you my studio in person during the week. If you can’t visit me on the weekends, if you are an architect or an interior designer looking to source artwork or discussion during working hours, or if you are worried that the studios will be too busy, I can offer you a quieter visit to see my work when the doors to my studio space are closed.

      I will be uploading a booking system to my website soon, in the meantime, Make an appointment with me by using my website contact form here.

      Protocol for visiting my studio and Krowji

      My space is small and I am hoping to rent a bigger room for the duration to allow for social distancing. But whatever the space available, there will be measures in place that visitors will need to adhere to to allow for a relaxed and safe environment.

      • Face masks will be a requirement to studio entry, I will be wearing a mask and I will ask that you do too
      • Hand sanitisers will be provided on entry to the building, and on entry to my studio room
      • As my space is small, I’ll only be able to welcome one person/ one ‘family unit’ / couple at a time
      • There will be a marked trail and marked waiting areas on the floor to create a comfortable flow and good spacing
      • The studios will have increased cleaning during the event and I will clean the space between visitors

      Where to find my studio

      I am usually in studio 108c but for the duration of Open Studios, to exhibit my work and allow for social distancing, you’ll find me in studio 220 on the 2nd floor of the Percy Williams building, just upstairs from my usual space.

      Open Studios artist listing for Trudie Moore

      Trudie Moore’s contemporary abstract paintings explore control and restraint in the painting process. These paintings have luminous fields of colour, transparencies and opacities that act as both a visual and an actual layer over one another, and which are layers upon the surface layer of the canvas. Paintings are priced from £45–2,000.

        Neon linings

        Back to school! Not the kind of BTS post that everyone else is sharing at the moment though!

        I’m very excited to say that today I picked up the keys to my new studio space @krowji_ in Redruth. After putting my back catalogue paintings into storage, my artistic move to Cornwall is complete.

        This is a new phase for my art career in Cornwall. The Krowji is a redeveloped Grammar school and home to around 200 other artists and creatives, I can’t wait to meet all the other tenants, see their work and businesses and get restarted.

        Every cloud has
        a neon lining

        So here’s to the neon lining on that cloud that’s emerged after saying goodbye to @twoqueensstudio 🥂

        Watch this space!
