Six visual artists have collaborated to mount “Passing Through”, an exhibition of contemporary art, in the beautiful new Mountsorrel and Rothley Heritage Centre which is the culmination of the

Mountsorrel railway restoration project.

There are few inventions since the industrial revolution that inspire us in the way that trains and train journeys do. Artists, writers and musicians often turn to railways as a way of symbolising the passage of life’s journey – conjuring up images of adventure, love and hope, loss and sorrow. Views glimpsed and gone forever.

Mountsorrel and the surrounding area epitomises the state of journeying through in a physical sense, dissected as it is, not only by railway tracks, but also canal routes, roads and river, all of which bear the traces of human activity and industry of the past.

With all these ideas in mind, the exhibition explores the emotional and metaphorical potential of journeying, and will include painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics and photography. Artists include Sue Barry, Janet Foster, Jacqui Gallon. Nita Rao, Tony Thory and Katherine Moorhouse.
