Multi-sensory collaboration by artists
By David Wood
Where: Chapel Arts, Cheltenham
When: Until June 30
An innovative new exhibition, Mining Perceptions, has opened at Chapel Arts in Cheltenham.
The exhibition is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between renowned glass artist Sally Fawkes and Oxbridge composer Alex Ho.
The centrepiece of this exhibition is a multi-sensory music and video experience created by both artists, surrounded by glass sculptures, drawings and photographs by Sally.
The project takes as its starting point an expedition Sally undertook in 2016 to Scandinavia where she spent a month sailing along the coastline of northern Norway aboard a tall ship, observing and recording her response to the extraordinarily powerful environs. Her experiences were as much physical as visual and it is therefore perhaps unsurprising that Sally was drawn to the idea of a multi-sensory exhibition to capture those experiences artistically
Chapel Arts is also delighted to have an exhibition by local artist Sallie Taylor. A collection of etchings, oils and drawings illustrate moments and conversations that accompanied her travels through the English countryside.
Tomorrow (Friday) Dean Close Junior School will be giving a free concert at Chapel Arts at 1pm as part of the Young Musician Concert series.
Chapel Arts is open Wednesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.
