18 January – 8 March 2014
The portrait has a long tradition of being represented by painter and sculptor alike. Some seeking to create an honest representation while others a thing of beauty. The celebrity culture that exists today has an insatiable appetite for images; here we see the work of seven artists concerned with notions of identity, truth and concealment
John Afflick, Stephen Brown, Lee Devonish, David Hancock, Errol Neil, Anthony Ogden, Pauline Parsons, Kyle Poulson, Leanne Richardson and Anne-Marie Wright.
Visitors will be offered a real insight into the creative process, from the generation of an initial idea to its realisation, and will even be invited to contribute to an artwork themselves.
