Farming as a craft

Come and see artist Maria McKinney in the ‘Make Space’ at Jersey Museum as she works on her creations for The Jersey Genome project - sculptural works that explore the notion of farming as a craft.

Maria creates colourful objects, placed on the back of the bulls, which are made from semen straws – the storage receptacles used in the artificial insemination process. They come in a variety of bright pop colours, perfect for creating some art!

She is in the ‘Make Space’ daily  between 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm until (Monday to Friday),  visitors will also be able to try their hand at making corn dollies.

The ‘Make Space’, kindly sponsored by the Association of Jersey Charities and Channel Islands Lottery, is part of the new ‘Handmade Jersey’ exhibition, which celebrates local artists and crafts people.


THE JERSEY GENOME
Semen straws sculptures and the craft of cattle farming. The artist Maria McKinney reveals The Jersey Genome at the Jersey Museum, a unique and fascinating exploration into the complex discipline of genomics and how this is shaping the future of the Jersey Cow.

The Jersey Genome is presented by The morning boat and Jersey Heritage in collaboration with the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural  Society, produced by ArtHouse Jersey and supported by the One Foundation and the Arts Council of Ireland.
