Gallery 1: Hi Vis - Elaine Goodridge, Ceri Muter, Penny McLaren & Lynn Pavey

'We are 4 women working with craft processes in fibre; Penny working with needle, thread and fabric exploring the aesthetics of pattern and texture through the motifs and methods of Sashiko, Elaine manipulating and upcycling thread and textiles in symbolic motifs to explore time and natural processes, Ceri manipulating diverse fibre and found materials with hands as tools to make works that serve as a meditative foci for both artist and viewer, Lynn constructing 3 dimensional forms with crochet and recycled textile, thread and plastics.'  

Gallery 3: The Macro in the Micro: Seeing is knowing - Karin Findeis

'This exhibition is the result of investigation into the intersection of light and jewellery via reflection and transparency. In my recent work I have been exploring light and colour. This manifests visually through material choice. Conceptually, I am interested in how these can shift our perception of what is going on around us. At its simplest this connects to how we see but also how light and colour can impact on us metaphysically. Culturally, looking and seeing are loaded processes; they can intersect but do not necessarily have the same results. These tensions are what I am working with.'

Gallery 3: Lost in thought - Zara Collins

'Trying to make sense of the extraordinary force of nature, the fragility of existence and a year of unprecedented upheaval internationally – this exhibition is a search for mindfulness in uncertain times.

Zara Collins’ ninth solo exhibition Lost in thought is focused on the horizon - the apparent line that separates earth from sky, the line dividing all that is invisible into two categories: what is earthly and what is not. Through paintings and ceramic vessels she creates a place for the eye to rest and the mind to contemplate the moment.'
