Be a part of the creative community and celebrate the opening of our new exhibition within Carillon Court, Loughborough. The evening will kick off at 7pm with drinks and DJs. ‘A Mountain is a Mountain’ will feature new work by George Chinnery, David John Scarborough, Tom Sewell and Rebecca Wymant as well as work produced in collaboration with the local community. The artists will exhibit ceramics, prints, sculpture, installations and photography, bringing together a range of ideas about the natural world. The title of the show takes inspiration from the Buddhist journey to enlightenment in which man attempts to understand reality, only to come to peace with the natural order of things. As we continue to superimpose our own ideas on to the natural world, nature continues on at it’s own pace.
OPENING NIGHT / 16 August 2019 7pm – 9pm
EXHIBITION CONTINUES / 17 August – 21 September / Thu-Sat 11am – 5pm
