Alice White

Alice White is a professional oil painter and art lecturer. She is regularly invited to speak on art theory and practice at institutes including Central St Martins College of Art and Design, Kings College London, Brunel University, The Art Workers’ Guild and The Courtauld Institute of Art. She is an Accredited Lecturer of The Art Society. Her essay ‘A Painter’s Perspective‘ is in ‘Alfred Cohen: An American Artist in Europe’, published by the Alfred Cohen Art Foundation and Ben Uri Gallery in Spring 2020.

Alice’s solo show ‘A New Wave: Art and Conservation Science‘ documented her year’s residency as Artist for Animals at London Zoo. The project highlighted areas such as the seahorse breeding programme, eel population monitoring processes, photomicrography, and cetacean pathology. Her current projects aim to spread the effectiveness of science communication within the arts and beyond.

Her recent collaborations with the SunSpaceArt project at the Science Museum in London and Torriano Primary School are designed to deliver STEAM workshops for children in situ, and to develop specialist Sci/Art online teaching resources.

Her lecture, ‘The Selfie and the Self’ is a key component of the Inspiring Minds project at Canterbury Christ Church University. The project aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds taking up STEM subjects in higher education by 2020 and is funded by the Office for Students (OfS) for the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP).

Alice’s forthcoming exhibitions include the Gustavo Barcarisas Gallery in Gibraltar and the Society of Graphic Fine Artists at the Mall Galleries in London. She was awarded the Russell and Chapple Canvas Prize at the Annual Exhibition for the Royal Society of Marine Artists.

She says: ‘The SunSpaceArt project is fascinating, timely, and a pleasure to be involved with. As an artist with a thirst for science, it is a joy and privilege to work with such a dynamic, committed team. Creating cross-disciplinary workshops with such a range of expressive, engaging specialists from across the fields of art, science and education is eye-opening. It has broadened my horizons, and I’m sure I’m learning as much as any of our young participants!’
