Opens 31 January 2019 at Jeannie Avent Gallery, 14 North Cross Road, Dulwich, SE22 9EU. The exhibition features photographs by Maciek Malinowski and ceramics by Joanna Szwej-Hawkin. Their work will be on display until 12 February 2019. “The Watercolour Rivers project was created to show the beauty of Iceland. Above all, the beauty of her nature, which is unique and unparalleled.
