Space2 Fluvial Exhibition by Claire Zammit and Beverley Purdue
- 30 April — 27 June 2015 *on now
With a particular relevance to the Three Rivers area, this exhibition explores water as a metaphor for the unconscious and the passage of time. Snapshots of both moving water courses and archival images are used as sources to create ethereal imagery where intimate narratives play with shared memory and experience.
A private view will take place Friday 8 May 5.30 - 8pm and an opportunity to hear the artists talk about their inspiration and collaboration will take place 20 June, 2 - 4pm. Free, but booking is essential.
- Any age
Free admission. Talk is also free, but booking is required.
