Whats On     

Doug SelwayShelf Lives

Wednesday 6 May - Sunday 21 June

Shelf Lives is much more than an exhibition but an interactive experience that binds together exciting and original combinations of paintings with small installations, film and performance.

Starting with a residency, artist Doug Selway offers open access sessions and workshops as he makes new work in response to his residency and prepares the space for the launch on Spring Bank Holiday weekend.

Doug's motivations are individual memory and how it enlivens our shared history. He is interested in how many meanings and objects we share and how many of them remain after we are gone. His hope is to encourage an active audience, who feel able to bring their own memories and responses.
