Getting Away

Getting Away!

A group exhibition curated by Day Bowman, also featuring artists: Anna Barlow, Lydia Blakeley, Jake Clark, Marguerite Horner, Sophie Marritt, Kitty Stirling, Judith Tucker,  and Amanda Wallwork.

Based on the idea of the great British holiday and its importance in both nourishing the spirit and reconnecting with the self.  Even the great Samuel Johnson, known to espouse the merits of London living, wrote that: ‘The use of travelling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are.’

This exhibition stretches rather than regulates our imagination. Whether it’s the ceramic confection of gloopy ice creams, the collapsed and windswept deck chair to the remembrance of road trips, bank holiday traffic and curious holiday dwellings.  Paintings, floor-based sculpture, video and plaster work provide a playful glimpse of what we Brits get up to whilst getting away! 

Gallery open every Thursday – Sunday between 3pm – 7pm or by appointment
