Margaret Ashman Saturday Debut 5th November 2011Posted: 07/11/2011
This weekend Margaret Ashman along with a printing press a couple of old trunks and took her place in the Debut window for a particularly interactive Saturday Debut.
The first few through the door were lucky enough to get hold of a free unique print made by Margaret especially for the occasion, but those who arrived later won’t have been too disappointed. The printing press wasn’t just there for decoration, Margaret came in with a selection of copper plates inviting everyone to create their own prints. People could choose between images pre-made by Margaret or if they were feeling adventurous could even design there own.
Alongside all this the window space was filled a selection of older 3D works, evocative pieces printed onto hand stitched dolls and sheets of muslin were displayed in her grandfathers old wartime trunks. The rest of the gallery had on display a number of more recent pieces, photographic etchings of dancers Shrimati Susanna and Chisato Minamimura were presented as part of her all new body of work.
