Clare Newton, British female inventor of the year actively pushing boundaries. Over the last two years Clare has already achieved a number of community inspired projects; delivering 300 meter display in City of London Corporation’s West Ham Park, Tate & Lyle’s factory, Trinity Buoy Wharf and ExCel’s Victoria Square.
Clare’s work has received the support of local councils, MPs and dignitaries as well as cultural societies and trusts such as English Heritage, Museum of London, Heritage of London Trust and Architectural Heritage Trust. She has also caught the media’s attention with BBC1 News, BBC Online website, articles in local newspapers and interviews on radio.
Her first outdoor show, Summer 2009, Clare was invited to present the installation to the The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Ian Luder, on 17th June, after which a banquet at the Salters’ Hall was held, with the Chairman addressing the Mayor and company, applauding Clare’s work:
“As Chairman, I did not imagine that we would ever have our own art gallery in the park, and once again the innovative West Ham Team has pleasantly surprised me. The open air art exhibition, documenting the disappearing heritage of East London, installed and inspired by local artist, Clare Newton, is truly wonderful. Thank you, Clare, for giving us the opportunity to showcase your work and for supporting the park in such a positive way.”
