Artists in Wonderland commemorates the 150th anniversary of the first publication of Alice in Wonderland.
Artists in Wonderland Webpage Private View: Thursday 4 June 6-9pm
"The exhibition reveals the artists’ distinctive interpretations of the classic children’s stories. From tiny details through to sweeping concepts, each artist brings you their own unique insight into the world of Lewis Carroll: here visitors can enjoy a range of exhibits from an interactive, mechanical sculpture, bespoke hats through to imaginative character portraits. Running for 12 days the exhibition includes tea parties and talks for visitors.
The Alice stories have inspired a wealth of artistic responses. The subjects and styles are wonderfully diverse. The artists’ reactions to the Alice theme have resulted in a unique, thoughtful and challenging body of work. The exhibition brings together a wealth of complementary artwork and opens up a dynamic and intimate dialogue with you, the viewer. Please join in by visiting Artists in Wonderland. As with other Espacio exhibitions, the artists are actively involved and you will be able to discuss the works with several present at the gallery each day."
