People who have saved this event:



In this exhibition of installation works, Susan Collis explores trompe l'oiel effects, utilising high craft skills to recreate apparently ordinary objects.

A pair of overalls hung casually on the walls of The City Gallery, bespattered with drips of paint show the long history of wear that they have had. But look a liitle closer and the paint reveals itself to be elaborate embroidery.

At first glance The grand scheme of things has the appearance of a gallery space in disarray between exhibitions. However, on closer inspection visitors will be in for a few surprises, there are bejewelled walls, intricate embroideries, beautiful drawings .
