This exhibition brings together thirteen such artists, from across the UK, who explore ideas associated with the uncanny, from generating an eerie sense of unease to acknowledging the motifs and techniques advocated by Surrealism and Dada. Exhibiting Artists: Jane Barwood, Ruth Fuller, Barbara Jones, Linda Lencovic, Anja Lubach,Amanda Palmer, Kirsty E Smith, Holly Stevenson, Jacki Storey, Sally Waterman, Caroline Watson, Teresa Wilson and Phillip Woolway.
