RACHEL GOODYEAR : CATCHING SIGHT
May 26 - Sep 3, 2017
The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present a brand new body of work by British artist Rachel Goodyear. Goodyear is renowned for her drawing-based practice which hints at a world of the unconscious mind. Her cast of characters, sourced from old magazines, books and anonymous photographs, often appear within claustrophobic spaces or are set against heavy and brooding washes of ink and watercolour.

SOHEILA SOKHANVARI : HEART OF GLASS
May 26 - Sep 3, 2017
Soheila Sokhanvari is an Iranian-born artist whose multidisciplinary work weaves layers of political histories with bizarre,humorous and mysterious narratives that are then left to the viewer's own sensitivity to complete.
Sokhanvari is drawn to traumas that linger in the collective consciousness or cause mass amnesia, and yet resist conventional representation,

Aug 11 - Nov 19, 2017
Private view Thu Sep 21 6pm - 8pm
Barbara Nicholls’ monumental watercolour works emerge by manipulating the behaviour of pigment in ever-increasing quantities of water. They have associations with geological forms touching on collective memories of the experience of natural spaces, of the landscape and of the body.

LEGACIES : JMW TURNER AND CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICE
Sep 22, 2017 - Jan 14, 2018
Private view Thu Sep 21 6pm - 8pm
A master of history, landscape and marine painting, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) challenged accepted conventions in art, often shocking his contemporaries with his techniques and candid portrayal of the modern world. Legacies will consider the impact of JMW Turner through the lens of contemporary art, highlighting the ongoing relevance of his work for artists practising today.
 
Tate is home to the largest collection of works by Turner. Legacies will present a selection of paintings, sketchbooks, diagrams and works on paper from the Turner Bequest, alongside existing work by contemporary artists who have made work after Turner or evoke typically Turnerian subjects in their work. Dorothy Cross and Jonathan Wright have been specially commissioned by The New Art Gallery Walsall to produce a new work each in response to Turner’s art.
