Nature Nurturing
19 July – 12 August 2018

Nature Nurturing is an exploration of the fragile and complex physical world we live in, by feltmaker Ellen King and weavers Jillian Culey and Carolyn Dance. The woven and felted forms in this exhibition take their inspiration from how nature can both provide and receive nurturing. Felting and weaving techniques have been used collaboratively and independently to evoke the sense of power, vulnerability and caring apparent in the natural world, both underwater and on land.

Serene Reflections
19 July – 12 August 2018

Drawing upon the Serene Reflection Meditation of the Soto School of Japanese Buddhism, this photographic exhibition explores the theme of reflection which is characterised by stillness, serenity, and simply being. The images show how reflections change from moment to moment, highlighting the motif of impermanence and transience. The mirroring images point to our true mind as a mirror-like mind and to a playfulness of the Universe as the process that creates a kaleidoscope effect of various shapes and colours. The exhibition explores how a small ripple can cause a wave: a larger-than-life effect, both concretely and metaphorically.
