Our next exhibition, starting this Friday (7th December) is ‘NOT WORDS’ - a Heritage Lottery Fund Project. During set up for this exhibition I spoke to Carole Copeland from Gekkota Arts to find out more information about the exhibition and it’s meaning.
The exhibition is a collection of artwork produces in response to NOT WORDS, a Heritage Lottery Fund Project celebrating the role of female artists in women’s struggle to win the vote. Artwork has been submitted to this exhibition by the local community and artists. Inspiration for all pieces within the exhibition was taken from NOT WORDS, Suffragettes and Women War Artists.
West Studios was chosen as the place to display this exhibition as we are partners on the NOT WORDS project.
The celebration event for this exhibition is on Sunday 16th December, 1pm to 3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend this event and it would be the perfect opportunity to speak to some of the artists and organisers behind the event.
