Curiosities Exhibition

Bankley member Helen Wheeler is taking part in the group exhibition 'Curiosities' at AIR Gallery in Altrincham.

Curiosities is an exhibition of extraordinary artwork that celebrates the curious and unusual in modern day art. Featuring the work of 12 prominent artists from across the U.K, this exhibition
aims to entice, excite and encourage visitors to explore.

Curiosity in itself is a fundamental part of any artist; that need to analyze, inquire and experiment is the starting point of any work of art. The inquisitive mind of the artist is reflected throughout the works on show, with artworks that dissect, transform and fall outside the usual constraints.

Exhibition dates: Thursday 2nd November- Saturday 9th December.

Opening Event: Thursday 2nd November: 18:0020:00

Andrea Cotton


The next exhibition in The Windows Project is opening at Nexus Art Cafe from 7.00 pm on Thursday 12th May and runs until July 12th. A new artist has joined the project - Andrea Cotton - with work based on objects found in the prison environment. My own work continues to be informed by what effect institutionalisation has on the individual's identity in such an environment.

On June 24th, there will also be an evening of performance, poetry etc. with a slightly humourous stance, called The Bright Club. You can access what all this is about on the Nexus Art Cafe website. The theme for this event is 'obsession'.
