Landmarks opening day 1-3pm
Kate Davies | Sarah Feinmann | Maggie Hargreaves | Fiona Moate
The Gallery at St. George’s House is pleased to present an ambitious new exhibition by four Greater Manchester artists; Kate Davies, Sarah Feinmann, Maggie Hargreaves and Fiona Moate.
Collage and works on paper or canvas reflect the processes at work in our environment; the ways in which nature supports life and the ways in which time and people put their mark on nature. This exhibition looks at nature itself as well as at the traces, erosions and edifices, from wheel tracks to monuments, fences to hill figures: the results of time, history and people’s interactions with their surroundings.
Each artist brings a unique focus to the exhibition: Kate Davies looks at the overlooked and insignificant parts of the worked landscape and at the tracks and traces, sticks and stones which mark the land; Sarah Feinmann’s work uses juxtapositions of used and worn scraps and fragments of paper to examine the nature of time, memory, change and erosion; Maggie Hargreaves is interested in the natural environment and how the interactions within it enable it to function as a habitat for all; and Fiona Moate makes semi abstract paintings, which incorporate landscape elements, from ancient monuments to architectural landmarks.
Exhibition continues until 10 January 2019
