By Sara Hurley
Sara Hurley presenting a selection of her drawings on paper and canvas. Her subject matter is visitors of galleries and museums where they form a relationship with an art work; they become the art themselves.
You are invited to a Meet the Artist event with Berkshire based artist Sara, taking place in our Gallery on Sunday 3 February between 11am -4pm.
In this exhibition, the artist presents paintings that explore choice, decision and chance as a metaphor for the process of living in a modern, complex world.
The aim is to make enigmatic, poetically powerful, contemplative objects expressing a sense of the continual struggle between necessary order and desirable anarchy.
Working with local Maidenhead schools, this interactive exhibition is part of the brand new Quest Family Fest.
Navigate your way through a host of creative adventures and fearlessly explore a land where imagination rules supreme.
Led by Clare Lynskey.
