FULL CIRCLE - GALLERY ONE - March 16th onwards
Preview 2pm - 4pm 16th March
Following on from our BIG ART and Size Matters Exhibitions, FULL CIRCLE is the third in our call out series to artists stipulating either size or shapes rather than subject matter. Using various mediums artists have used the format of
the circle to create, frame and challenge. We usually see art in rectangles, will
it alter our concept of what art is as the viewer to see work in the round? Does art in circles
makes us feel more at ease or are we always looking for the flat edge?
We look forward to you joining us for what will be another conceptual show.

Scenes of distant shorelines, vistas of far away lands and cobbled streets of foreign cities sit comfortable next to each other taking the viewer on a journey created by imagination, talent and watercolours. .
