      Within and Between: Women / Bodies / Generations

      Join us this spring for a diverse exhibition of sculpture, photography, film and video by artists Clair Chinnery, Janice Howard and Lisa Richardson. This exhibition will bring together individual practices of three mid-career artists providing opportunities for audiences to consider not only the social positioning of ‘women of a certain age’ but also the inner worlds of those whose lives pivot on the cusp of change, often measured through life altering events.
