Have a spare 20 minutes and a curious mind? Here’s a veritable library of free art videos for you to select from!

Elevenses with Lynne

If you are on Instagram, you may have seen me live at 11am on any given Thursday morning. I started to broadcast livestreams called ‘Elevenses with Lynne’ in March 2020 and have continued to do so. As with most things, these broadcasts have evolved. They have ranged from being about specific artworks to any art that was / is weird and wonderful; the episodes with ‘weird’ in the title cover several strange works each with their own story to tell and most with a ‘eugh’ factor! They’re all loosely scripted, unedited, relaxed and around 20 minutes long.

To enable you to get more out of these videos, I am now writing a complementary Elevenses blog for all future episodes which means that you can easily see what each episode is about and access the relevant video from the post. I have, however, also included this free video content, along with the archives, below in the series entitled ‘Elevenses with Lynne’.

You can, of course, join me live on Instagram every Thursday at 11am for brand new material. I’d love to see you there!

Pepped up by Paintings and Curated Canapés and Cocktails – bite sized arty titbits

Armed with a green screen, microphone, lights and an iPhone, I started to make little films in my kitchen. The result was Pepped up by Paintings which morphed into Curated Canapés and Cocktails. These videos range in length from a minute to 7 or 8 minutes long and a few form their own little mini-series! Curated Canapés and Cocktails is taking on a life of its own and now deserves an individual page on the website, however, you can also view all the videos in the series here.

Titian’s ‘poesie’ series

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I adore Titian. The ‘Love, Desire, Death’ exhibition at the National Gallery (which is going to re-open in London as soon as the galleries are permitted to open again) prompted me to buy a green screen in the first place and make my first foray into creating videos. There are six paintings in this exhibition and I had so much to say that I made three 5 minute films about each. As part of these videos, I talk about the curious biographies of the works themselves, which was also the subject of my podcast with Jo McLaughlin which you can access on the Podcasts and Print page.

In each series, the most recent video will always be the one displayed but you can delve into the archives by clicking the three lines to the top right corner and accessing the playlist.

I hope you enjoy them.
