"Out on a Limb"
Thursday 11th Feb - Sat 3rd April
Our first exhibition for the year is called ‘Out on a limb…..’which once again seems an appropriate theme given what the last year has been and with the possibility of more to come for a while yet.
This theme covers a variety of ideas and possibilities of interpretation. Many of us have felt a bit ‘out on a limb’ over this last year in regards to not knowing where we’re headed, dangling at the end of a branch, wondering and watching if we’re about to fall off or not. Many different opinions have been expressed around so many issues over the last year and when that happens, controversy can put one in a risky place and the phrase ‘going out on a limb’ can have that connotation as well. It also relates literally to a part of an animal or human body as distinct from the head and trunk. With tree limbs, artificial limbs, the ‘four limbs of a cross’ and “going out on a limb” the variety of work from the artists exhibiting makes for interesting interpretations.
The exhibition runs until Saturday April 3rd.
