CEO/Artistic Director


Following a successful year of development of our Artistic Programme, including landmark artist residencies, the launch of our new artist development programme Field Guide and the key ACE funded Change Makers project, it is with regret that we announce our current CEO & Artistic Director Shân Edwards has taken the decision to step down from the role at the end of the year. She does however intend to continue working with us, developing major projects that aim to further our growth and ambitions as an organisation. We would like to thank Shân for her total dedication to the development of The Art House and wish her the very best for the future. 

'I've had an amazing time working with an incredibly talented community of residency artists, studio holders and colleagues and I'm going to miss working with everyone day-to-day during the exciting times ahead. However, I will not be severing my ties completely and am really looking forward to developing some fantastic new projects with The Art House in the future.' Shân Edwards

We are already in the process of recruiting a new Chief Executive/Artistic Director, and with support from Shân, a planned transition period will ensure the continued delivery of our Artistic Programme and development of our ambitious plans for the future.
