Click to enlargeLOIS WALPOLE : WEAVING GHOSTS
May 24 - Sep 8, 2019
Lois Walpole: Weaving Ghosts is an exhibition that focuses on ghost gear*, basketry skills and sustainability. The work of Lois Walpole is intrinsically linked to the materials used to create it, and tells a powerful story of our attitude to the environment, exploring the artist’s personal history to express universal issues. Using ancient and almost forgotten basketry techniques, Walpole’s cheerful, colourful vessels belie a deeper truth and stand as silent testaments to the problems facing our planet.

RICHARD CLARE : YOU LEFT THE DOOR WIDE OPEN ALL NIGHT
May 24 - Sep 8, 2019
You Left the Door Wide Open All Night represents a small selection of the work Richard Clare has produced since settling in Letchworth in 2010. Previously an abstract painter while living in Barcelona, Clare’s recent work has become more figurative, developing a cast of characters and motifs that inhabit the artist’s ‘other world’, a psychologically skewed universe that, although dreamlike, they are given a realness and authenticity through expressive and intuitive mark-making.
