Ragley Hall Artist In Residence

Dawn Harris, Artist in Residence, Ragley Hall, UK
Ragley Hall has announced that Dawn Harris will be its ‘Artist in Residence’ during 2013. On select days between Easter and October, Dawn will be based in the Ragley Gallery & Studio, within the Grade I listed stables and will use the residency for reflection, research, presentation and production of work that responds to the Ragley environment.  Dawn, who was born in Birmingham, was previously in partnership with the National Trust as Artist in Residence.
The residency will enable visitors, local schools, universities and community groups to explore contemporary art through discussion, workshops and exhibitions within this valued heritage site. Dawn's residency will enable her to explore her practice within a different community; meeting new people, using new materials and experiencing life in a new location. This year Dawn will be considering why 'Heritage' is important to the community.
Dawn Harris stated ‘I am delighted to be Artist in Residence at Ragley and I am looking forward to developing the residency entitled: ‘Negotiating Heritage’. Through negotiation I plan to begin a dialogue that services my interpretation of the heritage of Ragley”.
Dawn will be engaging with visitors between 11am and 4pm on selected dates which can be found on the Ragley website. Engagement with Dawn is included in the Ragley Park & Gardens admission rates.
