'ART IN A BOX', 3 MAY-28 JUNE 2014

Boxes speak of opening and closing, revealing and concealing, of surprises and disappointments, treasures and collections, and of intimate spaces. The pieces in this exhibition might speak of these things too, and more.  Expect to embrace the cusp where fine art and craft meet, where something new and unforeseeable has emerged – deconstructing and re-assembling the object and its many connotations in two, three, and four dimensions.

'All Star', Hitesh Natalwala

This was an open submission exhibition. Artists were invited to make works not merely in a box, but under, over, around, about or from boxes.

'FLOTSAM', SPACE 2 GALLERY, 3 MAY–28 JUNE 2014

A solo exhibition by Jo Atherton at Space2 Gallery, Watford Museum.

The exhibition showcases her unique tapestries, comprised completely of flotsam and marine debris gathered from shorelines around the world. Through her striking weavings, it is possible to examine our throwaway culture and question the untold stories of the orphaned objects used in her work - who owned them and how did they arrive on a beach?

The exhibition runs until 28 June and can be viewed Thurs–Sun in Watford Museum.

To find out more about Jo’s work, please visit her website, www.flotsamweaving.comSee full article.
