Keith Bayliss: Swsana and The Elders
- 13 January — 27 February 2016 *on now
‘Swsana and The Elders’ is the title and is based on the story from the Bible depicted by so many artists from the Renaissance to the present day. Keith has wanted to create his own version on this theme and has produced a powerful exhibition using mixed media with three dimensional figures, reliefs and paintings. On the stairs are a selection of drawings in ink on paper from a series called Wandering Soul with accompanying poems by the poet David Thomas who will be part of an event along with musician Joe Bayliss at the closing of the exhibition on Saturday 27 February. Also, on Saturday 6 February at 2pm, Sally Moss curator and lecturer will be ‘in conversation’ with Keith so there will be another opportunity to meet the artist and learn about his work.
