Goodbye Ben Burtenshaw!
Emerging Artist Benjamin Burtenshaw originally came to SSW for three weeks, but ended up staying for 6 months! It has been a pleasure to have had Ben here as an Emerging Artist, a Technical Placement and finally as Technician in Residence.
Ben had an exhibition here at SSW in December, Try As We Might and he hosted his event Pizza Evo 2.4 last friday, 29th April 2013, coinciding with his farewell. His event gathered the community together by inviting all to make a pizza, which Ben then cooked in his neon lit, granite pizza oven!
We will miss Ben a lot here at SSW, and wish him a very fond farewell. His next artistic adventure will be in Spain…..
