Unspoken, Truth and Silence at the Halpern Gallery, Chatham

Had a lovely day hanging the exhibition Unspoken, Truth and Silence at the Halpern Gallery, Chatham. It opens Thursday 18th through to 31st January.

This exhibition includes the collaborative project UMO (‘Unidentified Meaningful Object) the brainchild of artist Liesbeth Werts, supported by Cas Holmes which invites visitors to create their own interpretations and to contribute to the installation at the gallery if they wish.


Details of how to make an UMO can be found at the gallery or on this website link. Loving these ephemeral wrapped bundles by 3-4 year olds of Homestead Nursery, Gresford, North Wales

There is also a lovely little video by Liesbeth Werts. Other venues are planned during the year before returning to the gallery in 2025 so there is time to be involved.  Add you  piece to the collection on display in the gallery or post your UMO before 30th January. (Please note these will not be returned)

Contributions have been made by  the What We Value, What We Miss online group, Jumpstart and the Nucleus  Arts Centre 'creative family', particpants of the Mental Fight Club   as well as individual contributions sent in from all over the world. With special thanks to the Fibre and Form textile group for their contribution (and assisting with the installation) and to the Nucleus Arts Centre for supporting the exhibition.

I am also delighted to announce that the Gypsy Makers Tour opens with a launch at Tŷ Pawb on the 19th January 2024 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Illuminate by Art Textiles Made in Britain is currently on show at Queen Street Gallery in Neath. until 17th February.

And finally, we enter the last month of Storyellers exhibition at The Beaney in Canterbury there are only a few tickets left for my artists talk on Saturday 3rd February with Rob Smith. You can book a free place here.
