Awakenings

New work, Summer 2021

In recognition of this strange period in our lives the group have come together again with their new  'Awakenings' exhibition.  Much of the work focuses on the natural environment and the artists’ individual reactions to the pandemic.

As often happens with their group exhibitions, the works chime together in interesting ways to complement and enhance one another. The Collective believe that art is crucially important in the healing process, both personally and at a community level.

A full price-list is available on request.

Rupert Copping
