‘SOLSTICE – standing still’

21 June to 30 July 2017

The winter solstice, the rebirth of the sun, is an important turning point, as it marks the shortest day, when the hours of daylight are at their least.

SOLO EXHIBITION | Kelly John Gough

‘Grain of Hope’

23 September to 25 October 2017

Kelly explores the changed role of fine art at the beginning of the 21st century.

People turn to the arts, specifically to the visual arts for aesthetics, relief and hope.
