Arts: New exhibitions open on corsets, landscapses and textures
THREE exhibitions come to Comet country over the next month providing a feast of artistic work.
Baldock’s Gallery 1066 hosts a new collection of works by Kim Major-George prepared exclusively for the gallery.
A Journey Through Texture demonstrates the use of collagraph – a technique of making a textured plate using many different materials – with Kim taking raw images and embellishing them with many interesting materials, creating detail, impact, light and shade.
The exhibition launches with a chance to meet the artist next Thursday, March 24, from 6.30pm to 9pm. For more information call Hayley Norman on 07974 246389.
Hitchin museum is also running two exhibitions this month as North Herts Sanctuary client Terry Waites’ work – depicting the diversity and beauty of the natural world, from wild landscapes to the portrait of a beloved pet – is displayed at the Paynes Park Gallery.
The exhibition, which is in conjuction with the Hitchin sanctuary, aims to highlight the issues and challenge the preconceptions surrounding homelessness.
The museum is also hosting Ladies and their Corsets, an exhibition on the history of corsets, with replicas showing styles from the 1600s to 1910 on display. Visitors will also have a chance to try a corset on.
