Every Inkfolk event will show an exhibition of artwork from all kinds of artists and we will also put on our own music night, Halcyon, where DJ’s will take you on a musical journey, full of eclectic finds and good times.
We have a fully licensed bar, serving local craft beers and wines. We also offer good teas, coffees, non-alcoholic drinks and cakes in a relaxed atmosphere with great music. Outside there is a lovely garden terrace which, combined with the exhibition space, makes Inkfolk a perfect place to meet friends, view artwork and enjoy good sounds.
Thursday 31st May 5pm – 11pm
Exhibition Opening : In Our Nature - Kris Tate and Charlotte Mellor Meecham
Inkfolk’s first exhibition brings together work from two artists, one who works with the human image and another who creates images of animals. This comprises a mutual theme whereby the human and animal worlds are not considered as separate but are linked together through the use of decorative motifs. Traditionally, decorative patterns included abstracted forms which linked the human to the habitat and this was seen as part of their identity. In this case the pattern is more ambiguous, derived from a sense that the visual image has become part of what structures our world.
Despite the interest of both artists in decorative motifs, the working methods of each artist differs, one displaying the sophistication of digital technologies, one relying upon the imprecision of the marks of the hand. Yet both artists gather materials and techniques together as a kind of visual remix. Photo-montage, painting and illustration combine, a contemporary response to a deep-rooted fascination with decorative pattern. These works reappraise the traditional and celebrates the anonymous faces of history whose identity remains unknown.
