The Dean Clough Studio Artists

The Dean Clough Studio Artists are a group of up to 20 artists that are given rent-free studios at Dean Clough.

The idea for the group was proposed in 1989 by Douglas Binder; one of Dean Clough's first clients and a nationally important artist in his own right.

The group is in no sense a 'school' and efforts are made to ensure that a wide range of practice - including various forms of sculpture, painting, illustration, ceramics and printmaking - is represented.

The Studio Artists frequently exhibit in the Dean Clough Galleries and have held 'Open Days' in past years. In the 80's the group rapidly became a model for similar groups around the UK, although its organisational structure is continuing to evolve.

Past studio artists have included Tim Noble and Sue Webster ('The Art Junkies"), performance artist Ivan Rados, Scrap metal sculptor Sahaja, and noted portrait painter Tom Wood.
