NEW, bold and exciting artwork is being displayed in the stunning surroundings of the upstairs gallery at Gainsborough Old Hall.

Revival is an exhibition of sculpture and craftwork that is on show throughout the summer.

Urban Fossils by Vincent Canning is made up using pulped newspaper, where he has mashed up the shredded paper using a method like treading grapes, then he has casted found objects. Meanwhile, Ann Povey is exhibiting a hanging glass chandelier and some beautiful glass panels with inclusions of coloured glass and metal.

Julie Wiloughby’s textile pieces show a great use of embroidery and fabric layers in ‘an attempt to capture the curiosity felt when uncovering vintage wallpaper under the surface.’ Ceramic panels and vesels by Kelly Fisher adopt soft charcoal and black firing effects to tone well with the wood and plaster walls of the Old Hall.

Laura Mabbutt’s feltwork is made with natural, undyed fibres to ‘reveal the beauty and texture of the materials used.’

Revivalis on display at Gainsborough Old Hall on Parnell Street, throughout August until 30th November.

Admission is free.
