People who have saved this event:


Tearing up the Rule Book is a an exhibition of new paintings by Day Bowman whose large scale canvases echo the marks, lines and shapes that she and her brother made as children in the wet grey sand of their hometown beach.

PRIVATE VIEW - Thursday 21 March 6.00 - 8.00 pm


Growing up in a holiday destination, small seaside town the artist recognises that her work has frequently referenced the sea, the beach and the littoral and, from an early age, was acutely aware of the life of the seasons with the tsunami of summer visitors followed by the closed-up, out-of-season, winter months.
In this current series of paintings she sees these works as squaring the circle of her life and reaffirming her sense of play along with a deep questioning of the notion of place, identity and belonging in present day Britain.

PRIVATE VIEW - Thursday 21 March 6.30 - 7.45 pm 

IN CONVERSATION - Tuesday 26 March 6.30 - 7.30 pm
