The Edge

11 Sep 2010 - 06 Nov 2010

Inspired by Harry Ousey’s remarkable series of paintings called ‘Edge Movement’, this quirky exhibition shows ‘the edge’ explored by artists. Whether it is images of the sea meeting the shore, woodland meeting fields, light meeting the sharp blade of a knife or colour touching shape.

Among the artists featured will be Adam Lowe, Grace Gardner, Charles Napier Hemy RA, Kurt Jackson, Ian McKeever RA, Kenneth Newton, Breon O’Casey and Robert Jones.
