Lifeworld exhibition | November 2014 | Gallery 3

Lifeworld exhibition | November 2014 | Gallery 3

Saturday 8 November - Sunday 23 November
10:00 am - 6:00 pm

In Lynn Ahrens’ work, themes extracted from the origins of life through childhood, art and imagination recur and take new forms. Lifeworld is a selection of figurative paintings and paperworks exploring these human themes.

The situations in which Ahrens posits the figures determine the form they take, as much as they themselves inform the scenes around them. The arising interaction between subject and surroundings gives shape and colour to the metaphors Ahrens’ work explores.

Opens Friday 7th November from 6.30pm.
The exhibition runs until Sunday 23rd November.
10am – 6pm daily.

Free admission. All are welcome.

Spaces we live in and spaces we visit have an impact on our mood and well-being. They are especially important when we are not well. Some public spaces, for example Maggie’s Support Centres, Homoeopathic Hospital in Glasgow and Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, make us feel good even though we may have different tastes and ideas about art and design.

Expect to see paintings, greetings cards and prints for sale, alongside handmade crafts such as ceramics, soaps, candles and soft textiles.

This event will take place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 November in Gallery 2. The dates were selected with Christmas shoppers firmly in mind - though we do expect to see many visitors indulging in the “one for you, one for me” method of gift-giving!
