Wandering Rocks exhibition

Wandering Rocks follow-on exhibition

Six artists from As Time Goes By, the exhibition I have co-curated, have been selected by Stephen Snoddy, Director of the New Art Gallery in Walsall, for his exhibition Wandering Rocks at Stone Space Gallery. The exhibition will take place 26th July-19th August. The exhibition will feature selected works from the over 70 artists participating in the Leytonstone Arts Trail.

"It was a pleasure to go on the Leytonstone Art Trail and see so much art activity across all disciplines and to see the community embrace the visual arts. This can only go from strength to strength and I look forward to seeing 'Wandering Rocks' at the Stone Space Gallery.
‘Wandering Rocks’ is episode ten of James Joyce’s classic Ulysses. It consists of nineteen short views of characters, major and minor, as they make their way around Dublin in the afternoon. Within each subsection, short, disjunctive paragraphs pop up that depict a simultaneous action in some other part of the city. My concept is that Leytonstone becomes Dublin for the day and that 19 artists are chosen to reflect the day."- Stephen Snoddy

Selected artists: Paul Morris, Robert Jackson, Paul Tucker, Andrew Super, Gillian Drinkwater, Julia Spicer.

The As Time Goes By exhibition continues until July 21st.
