INSIDE/OUTSIDE

10TH JANUARY TO 23RD FEBRUARY 2019

VENUE: Sock Gallery, Loughborough Town Hall.

A group exhibition by ArtSpace.

21 members of ArtSpace Loughborough present an exhibition on the theme of ‘Inside/Outside’. In varied media, they explore how the inner and outer worlds of our lives connect. Sometimes this is literally the contrast between interiors and outside as seen through a window or doorway, or hinting at natural patterns in a man-made environment. Some artists wanted to focus on their private creative thinking in relation to the bigger world. Some artists chose to think about the contrast between our inner lives and the self we present to other people.

Artspace @ Deda 5th Jan – 26th Feb

Artspace present an exhibition on the theme of ‘Seeing the Light’ at Déda Derby (Derby’s dance and performance centre) from Friday 5th January to Saturday 24th February 2018. Artists were asked to respond in their own way to the theme and with their chosen media.
Some artists have chosen to explore literal physical light in the world: how it continually changes and changes what we see, the contrast between darkness and brightness, the patterns created, and how it makes colours more vivid.
Some have interpreted ‘light’ as energy or primordial life.
Others have interpreted the theme in a metaphorical way – a desire for enlightenment and understanding of the world and ourselves.

‘Seeing the Light’, 5th January to 24th February,
Monday – Thursday 9:00 am – 9:00pm, Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm Saturday 9:00am – 4:00pm,

Déda Derby, Chapel Street, Derby DE1 3GU. Tel 01332 370 911. www.deda.uk.com

The PREVIEW EVENT  is on Thursday 4th January at  6 – 7:30pm.

Odyssey to Stamford 1st – 18th June 2017

Our latest exhibition is at the Stamford Arts Centre

1st to 18th June 2017

 

18 members of the artists’ group Artspace Loughborough explore the theme of ‘Odyssey’. Each artist has responded differently and with a variety of media to the theme of a journey.

Several artists have chosen to explore actual journeys: narrow boat journeys in central England, photos from a train in India, the journeys of refugees to a safer life, Australian aboriginal songlines, wallpaper seen in an old cottage in New Zealand, shoes and other objects that remind us of travel.

Some journeys are imagined: the possible aftermath of a shipwreck, the exploits of a travelling circus.

Other work has a more metaphorical quality: the artist’s own journey to develop their art or to find meaning.
