Fiona Halliday is a Barnsley fine artist and member of the collective Northern Young Artists. After struggling to find a local affordable studio space decided to create her own. Northern Young Artists worked in partnership with Leeds based contemporary art organisation East Street Arts to create a new exhibition/project space could be adapted for different uses including larger visual project work or a rehearsal space for performance work, within a long since dissused unit in Redbrook Business Park.
Fiona explains that ‘at Redbrook we aim to provide local artists with affordable studio spaces and a large exhibition/project space. There are around six private studio spaces ready to be used and will be rented at affordable rates, in negotiation with Northern Young Artists & East Street Arts. The private studio spaces would be suitable for artists working in a range of media, they range in size from approximately 10 – 16 m2 and the exhibition space is approximately 370 m2.’
Northern Young Artists are developing an exciting exhibition programme and are looking to showcase a range of contemporary work from emerging artists in the area, with the launch exhibition taking place this coming Spring.
