Artwork by Sharon Baker

Sharon Baker – Manhole Covers: Pictures Beneath Your Feet

  • 16 December 2017 — 28 January 2018 *on now

Bold and colourful images fill the room for this unusually-themed show. Drain covers, hydrants and boundary boxes are part of the often overlooked scenes we see everyday, yet their designs are creatively celebrated in this fun show.

Bold gestures and vibrant colours make the well-known designs appear less familiar – these artworks are sure to have you spotting manhole covers all the way home!

  • Any age

Artwork part of Object Relations exhibition

Object Relations: Images in photography and painting

  • 23 December 2017 — 11 February 2018

Photographs and paintings of everyday objects are displayed alongside each other in this exciting 2-person show. Artists Christian Mieves and Euripides Altintzoglou present a body of work which plays with ideas of uncertainty and surprise. The images exhibited show objects which should be familiar to the viewer, yet they are depicted in a way which makes the items less easy to understand and recognise. Does this show make you think differently about the way objects are usually represented in pictures? Are you mostly looking at the object or at the image? What do these images say to you?

Suitable for

  • Any age

Admission

Entry is Free.

Artwork in Subjectively Objective

Subjectively Objective

  • 6 January — 11 February 2018

Recent graduates of North Warwickshire and Hinckley College present this selection of photographs of different places. Some are abstract, and it is difficult to recognise the type of scene shown. Others focus in on a specific place or section of an area and the great news is that they’re all for sale!

The artists include Jasmine Gandy and Gayle Baker, who both obtained their degree in Visual Media from Coventry University having studied the course through North Warwickshire & Hinckley College.
