Call for entries - Behind The Smile

My experience of living with endometriosis and adenomyosis inspired me to create an exhibition to raise awareness of invisible illness. Together with other artists I am curating an exhibition for March 2018 at Banks Mill Studios, Derby.

Behind the Smile
An invisible illness exhibition exploring living with issues such as chronic pain, depression & anxiety. Aiming to break taboos & raise awareness.

The deadline will be 31st December.

Any artistic interpretation of invisible illness will be considered including pieces from a loved ones perspective. If you're not sure if your project is relevant please email to discuss.

There will be a voluntary contribution towards the cost of publicity and a private view event, this will be confirmed once I have an idea of numbers but no more that £20.

If you’re interested in getting involved please register your interest below

Time & Tide EcoCreate Exhibition

The launch of the Time & Tide exhibition was a great success, so pleased with the turnout. I have loved helping to curate this exhibition with Charlotte Rhoades as part of my role at the EcoCreate network.

Running until 27th Jan 2017 Mon-Friday 10am-3pm at Banksmill Studios we recommend calling ahead 01332 594170 We also have the open day Sat 21st still to come, see our upcoming events on Facebook!

Although I'm excluded from the judging process I do like to produce a piece for these exhibitions, this is my 'Father Time'.

‘Time rules the world’, magazine collage depicting Father Time watching the tide rise and the sunset on parliament. The stars become dandelion clocks as they fall, they read ‘Tick Tock’. Made entirely of ripped and cut magazines, on recycled board using non-toxic adhesives.
