Art Exhibition: Forces

Alison McFadden Reduced

Body/Connect/Affect Yellow Blue by Alison McFadden

Forces is a mixed media, 2D, art exhibition by three artists - Alison McFaddenJulia Keenan and Morwenna Lake -  who have all graduated from UCA Farnham and are establishing their art practice. All have exhibited widely and this exhibition at the Phoenix Theatre & Arts Centre has been curated to show a particular thematic strand of their art work. These three unique artists, in Forces, present works which consider the power and nature of forces. Be it; the bursting of a seed head, the marks made by a tree branch moving in the wind or the trace of body movement marking the momentum made by swinging from gym rings, forces are at work.

The exhibition will be in the The Phoenix Foyer and Room 3 until Christmas and entry is free of charge.
