Walking the Line opening this Saturday!
There is many an artwork gem to be located in the stockroom of Arts project, or perhaps a more accurate statement, a veritable plethora of jewels to be found.

In this instance the ‘jewels’ I was looking for to put this show together have included works that feature line and mark making. Whether using pencil, charcoal, nib pen, paintbrush or etching tool (to name a few), line and mark making is perhaps one of the simplest and most immediate means of communicating an idea.
In this show expect to see a broad range of linear applications from the use of pattern and repetition seen in the work of such artists as Alvaro Alvarez, Fiona Longhurst, Scott Ferguson, Warren O’Brien, and Dionne Canzano to the gestural and lyrical works of Lai Lai Gong and Leo Cussen, to the rhythmic and kinaesthetic light drawings of Cameron Noble.
