Organic – Jo Jones

Sculptural and hung textiles work based on organic structures. The main body of work is hand dyed wool and silk fibres which are machine embroidered and embellished with silk rods and cocoons. The pieces explore the theme of ‘organic’ looking at microscopic cell structures and the intricate patterns and formations that they create.

Pulling Strings – The Engine Room

Coming soon to the Peacock Gallery…

2 – 16 December 2017

In, Pulling Strings, our latest exhibition, The Engine Room seeks to observe and define how we are both puppeteer and marionette and deconstruct that relationship: to notice not only the strings that are pulled but the hand that guides them. We do not necessarily contend that influence or control are in themselves undesirable but that we require awareness of how we are being persuaded and the consequences of that persuasion.

 

The Engine Room is an independent arts and mental health project initiated by a group of creatives with enduring mental health issues for individuals living with mental health issues across our local community. Our aim is to create a space for individuals to access independent free thinking creative experiences of quality with professional facilitators that will promote empowerment, recovery and healthy human development in a nurturing and safe space across our local community through a programme of weekly drop in sessions. Our wish is to enable individuals and groups with mental health issues to connect with our local community to look at creative ways of how we can nurture and help build mentally healthy communities and society as a whole, through peer supported arts programmes.

My World by Martin Creasey

New exhibition coming soon to the Peacock Gallery

4 – 23 November 2017

Artist Martin Creasey is showing a selection of oil, acrylic and watercolour landscapes, drawing on his many years of experience as a Graphic Designer, which has helped to bring an understanding of colour, shape and form to his paintings. In particular, his watercolour paintings often show great vibrancy of colour, with strong use of greens, yellows and reds, whilst his acrylic paintings show attention to detail, in both composition and technique.
