Catherine Reed: Journeys
When: 18/08/2017 – 30/09/2017
The next fabulous exhibition opening at pythongallery is on Friday 18th August, from 6:30-8:30.
It is a solo show by the artist Catherine Reed.
The exhibition features Paintings and sculpture which are alive with colour, movement and vigour. Inspired by Catherine’s childhood growing up in Africa, the work crosses the boundaries between Western and African art, and between Abstraction and Colour. It is visually rich, dynamic and enthralling.
In Catherine’s words:
An exciting and colourful exhibition by North East artist Catherine Reed, showing work inspired by a
life in Africa and travels around the world.
The title of the exhibition is taken from the Swahili word SAFARI (Journey) – the exhibition itself
reflects the proverb Kusafiri ni Kujifonza ,meaning ‘Travelling is Learning’
The exhibition features vibrant oil paintings, mixed media works and enamel on glass. Along with
sculptures made from welded scrap metal inspired by African street art this is a must see exhibition.
As always we will be offering refreshments and nibbles courtesy of TP CoffeeHouse, our amazing on site partners, so come along and enjoy an evening of colour, art and life!
