New Member of the Month!

Member of the month is......The Click!

The next Member of the Month is a big one – it goes to The Click for smashing print room records in terms of prints per hour and for sheer dedication in following through this project right from design to actual printing.


The Click is a creative design consultancy based in Norwich, England. Established seven years ago, it is made up of five members of staff and works with clients across the UK.


The Click first came to Stew Print Rooms for a team building session and liked it so much they came up with The Print Sale project which they explain more about here:

“The Print Sale has been set up to capture ideas flying around the studio, get them on paper and support good causes in the process. The posters feature thoughts, ideas and little witticisms dreamt up by the team at The Click. Each one is screen printed with vibrant inks on GF Smith Colorplan stock. Print runs are strictly limited and all profits are donated to good causes.
100% of profits from sales will be shared between a selection of charities that hold significance for members of the team. These are: Age UK, Alzheimer's Society, Asperger East Anglia, Bowel Cancer UK, East Anglia's Children's Hospices and Mustard Soup.”

So for the perfect Christmas present go to http://theprintsale.com/ you will be spoilt for choice!!!!

New Show at Stew

Stew is proud to present Joni Smith - Over your cities grass will grow. 
Preview from 7pm on the 3rd of November

We hope very much to see you there...

Statement from Joni Smith.

This exhibition is a collection of thoughts that surround a certain genre of scientific enquiry. Theories such as Quantum Physics, String and Chaos theory act as starting points for quasi-scientific investigations. Research into branching theory for example looks into the world of river systems, tributarys' and road networks, resulting in the use of map as vessel to convey the mathematical thinking behind this theory. A map is a visual representation of our world. I take fragments of this representation of reality and reconfigure the pieces as if i were assembling a jigsaw puzzle; resulting in a new reality that obeys different laws, whilst still retaining aspects of own familiar world. During its assembly this puzzle follows certain rules in it's creation that echo the assembly of our own world: by using atom-like building blocks, a new kind of existence is painstakingly mapped out. Each investigation leads to a personal translation or understanding of each theory, designed to create metaphors and conversations between the works themselves, and the viewer.
Often the work is labour intensive giving the impression of a kind of natural formation, where rocks and land are slowly formed, or reformed. As each piece takes shape it is clear to see one world breaking down whilst another emerges. During the Stew residency I have been allowed the freedom to explore these ideas in a more physical way, and create work with which the viewer can become more involved. The difference between the installation works and the more mediative pieces highlight an important contrast which demands different levels of attention and enquiry from the viewer, as if they were exploring the theory themselves. In one instance the viewer would experience the excitement of the discovery of an idea or theory; an in another they may develop a more calm and considered approach to the work, echoing the concentration and dedication a scientist or mathematician needs in order to map out a formulas and equations that will support their theories.
