Thursday 27 April – 14 May: Lewisham Art House presents Knots Exhibition
Lewisham Art House will present KNOTS, an exhibition of new work by Shiree Allen, Nancy Edwards, Jo Evans and Liz Workman. Knots are everywhere in our daily life, often overlooked but always invaluable. Working in print, photography, sculpture and works on paper, each artist has responded to the theme of knots: the literal (tangled, connected, binding, tension, repetition); the psychological and emotional (stomach knots, ‘certain knot of peace’, tying the knot); and the mythological (Gordian knots, Heraldic knots). A collaborative sculpture forms the centre piece of the exhibition.
Opening hours: 12-6pm Thursday to Sunday
Dates: 27th April – 14th May 2017
Private View: Friday 28th April
Address: Lewisham Art House, 140 Lewisham Way, London, SE14 6PD
