Design for Living
Saturday 7 March - Sunday 26 April
Artists Clare Birks & Jaymini Bedia; both stimulated by Tendrings' distinctive sense of place, the wide open skies, its beautiful beaches, the flotsam and jetsam and its relationship with the sea have collaborated with local residents and students in exploring their community and environment.
The local residents have been encouraged to look afresh at their immediate environment and interpret their vision of and for their community, through various mediums. The community's work will be shared through this exhibition, empowering residents to become active participants in their community.
In response to the communities' work the artists have created an installation and performance piece offering an exciting new perspective on the regeneration debate.
Wednesday 29 April - 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 four week 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.
