Current and Forthcoming Events
Eden, Participate Contemporary Artspace, Shrewsbury
5th August to 26th August 2017
(11am to 5pm Tues – Sat)
One of my drawings, “When Adam Delved” will be included in this show, curated by Katie Hodson.
“Eden is an exhibition comprised of selected submissions and invited art works. The exhibition explores the notion of “constructed paradise” through utopian and dystopian ideas, sited in response to its title. Urban aesthetics sit side by side with rural ideals, juxtaposing our fabricated urban environment with the naturally occurring. The exhibition explores the labour of the construction process – building, making, growing”

Paola Alessandri-Gray / Peter Barnard / Sarah Boulton / Charlotte Brisland / Coral Brookes / Melmel Chen / Maria Foskett / Jayne Gough / Kaori Homma / Jill Impey / Louisa Johnson / Bridget Kennedy / Dolly Kershaw / Rhianne Masters-Hopkins / Jenni Moffitt / Zoe Needle / Richard Reynolds / Joe Stogdale / Gunhild Thomson
Your Perfect High Street!
Art Workshop, Unitarian Church, Saturday 9th September 2017
Many people might think Shrewsbury’s High Street is near perfect as it is. Here’s your chance to team up with me and have a go at designing your own perfect high street in an art workshop at the Unitarian Church as part of the Heritage Open Day events.
Think about what you like and don’t like about the town’s main street and then try planning all the things you’d rather see and do in its place. Participants will create a collaborative artwork for display. Drop in to take part in a short visit, or pre-book to join the design team for the whole workshop. Booking advisable as places will be limited. See poster below for further details.

There were workshop events by several of the artists to encourage participation in collage.
