Spanning three generations, creativity connects the very different specialisms and approaches to the production of artwork. From mixed media drawing to woven textiles and illustration to conceptual painting, the artists all engage with material expression and hand manipulated media in their practices.
Featuring works by Ellie Foreman-Peck, Anna Garrett, Glynis Lamond, Betty McGimpsey and Stephanie Rolph.
Everyone is welcome to visit the exhibition and meet the artists on Sat 08 July.
