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.
