Join Explore Art Trowbridge (EAT) on Saturday 21st April for 3 exhibition openings across Trowbridge. You can find the programme for the day below.
This is the third collaborative event between Town Hall Arts, Drawing Projects UK and Trowbridge Museum to showcase the amazing and growing cultural + artistic offer in Trowbridge.
Town Hall Arts
Town Hall, Market Street, Trowbridge, BA14 8EQ
Join us 12-2pm for the launch of Paul Deacon: Modest Objects, and be among the first to see this exhibition of vibrant paintings in Town Hall Arts’ unique gallery.
In Deacon’s physically and conceptually layered paintings the status of ordinary objects is raised, and their meanings redefined. Viewers are offered an opportunity to conjure personal memories and associations from these surreal, playful and familiar images.
Paul Deacon trained at the Bath Academy of Art, and has worked as a teacher and artist in North Wiltshire for forty years. His working process is driven by discovery, and begins when he finds an object, place, image or situation which resonates with him in an indefinable way.
The Shires Shopping Centre, Court Street, Trowbridge, BA14 8AT
Between 21st April – 18th May Trowbridge Museum will be hosting its first ever Affordable Art Exhibition. Local artists have been commissioned to produce original works that will be displayed in the Museum’s Temporary Gallery; these will include ceramic items, glass- blown objects, photographic prints and large scale 2D artworks.
The exhibition will launch on 21st of April between 2-4pm with the chance to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments.
As well as being an enjoyable display the public will have a chance to purchase anything in the display. The exhibition will culminate in an Auction on 18th May when any unsold pieces can still be bid for.
Drawing Projects UK
Bridge House, 10 Stallard Street, Trowbridge, BA14 9AE
At Drawing Projects UK, we will be open 1-4pm for the exhibition Consequences.
Consequences is a collection of drawings, photography, prints and paintings that reflect on the notion of consequence, whether this be chance, intentional, inadvertent, deliberate, playful or fortuitous. Featuring works by Laylah Ali, Yvonne Crossley, Richard Dunn, Peter de Francia, Ilya Kabakov, Margaret Kilgallen, Christopher James and Bedwyr Williams. These images represent, in different ways, critical moments in narratives, relationships, single events, and identity.
