Atelier Monday, the mentorship show

March 2017

Atelier Monday, The Mentorship Show is a group exhibition with our Atelier Monday mentorship group; Cara Bonewitz, Toby Mills, Liam Dunne, Leila Smith and Ewan Mitchell.

The artists work in various fields and with a variety of materials, so we are happy to be presenting both video work, a performance, installations and mischevious sculptures.

The exhibition will mark the outcome of a 3 months mentorship programme at 16 Nicholson street.

Since January we have met as a group and the mentors and mentees have had meetings and discussions individually. 
This specific opportunity for objective criticism, a sense of community, and the free use of exhibition space in an emerging gallery is what created the frame work for the programme.

We are very excited to share these newly produced works for you all, and hope to see you on the 31st of March.

Atelier Monday is a Glasgow-based mentorship programme for five artists, comprising of bimonthly meetings beginning on the 9th of January 2017 and culminating in a group exhibition in April 2017. The mentors involved (whose practices are described below) will meet their successful applicant twice a month on whatever basis suits both parties. The mentees meet every other Monday for group criticisms and informal events (screenings, talks, discussions) led by one of the mentors.

Catherine Cameron

Cameron holds a BA in Fine Art Photography from GSA 2013, and has worked as an artist since 2006. Her work has been exhibited worldwide and is represented in museums and private collections. She has held photographic workshops for skilled amateurs in Norway and also arranged workshops with internationally acclaimed photographers. Cameron would like to work with someone who is ready to dedicate time and effort during the mentoring period, who is interested in challenging their own comfort zone and visit unknown territory in order to move their work on. For Cameron, making art is more about lifestyle than practicing photography. Cameron does not offer technical tutorials. She is a deeply inspiring individual whose awareness of and commitment to art lends itself well to any aspiring photographic artist. At once compassionate and professional, she is an ideal mentor for anyone with a rigorous approach and ambitious personality. // Facebook: Catherine Cameron – Artist
