Shine a Light exhibition at Haarlem Artspace
Saturday 7th to Sunday 8th September 2019
at Haarlem Artspace, Derby Road, Wirksworth DE4 4BG
Monoprints created by Growing Lives participants will be exhibited as part of the Art and Architecture Trail at Wirksworth Festival next weekend.
Guided by contemporary visual artist Olivia Punnett, participants explored the collection at Derby Museum and Art Gallery, including the famous paintings by Joseph Wright. They chose works that personally resonated with them, and created artworks using monoprint and projection.
The project has been documented by photographer Jon Legge, and a of his images documenting the project will be available at the exhibition.
The Art and Architecture Trail is Wirksworth Festival's famous opening weekend event. The whole town becomes a gallery with more than 100 artists and designer-makers showing their work in over 70 venues. Tickets for the Art and Architecture Trail cost £7 and the Shine a Light exhibition will be at Haarlem Artspace throughout the weekend.
