Extract from A Story of Painting by Becca Harris
To celebrate the opening of the new gallery and studios, there’s an exhibition on until May 19 entitled Curating Curiosity, featuring work by Ragley’s Artist in Residence Dawn Harris and 12 other artists selected to be in the exhibition through an Open Call.
Artists include Stuart Layton (video), Karen Gazey (projection), Tor Hilyard (print), Zarina Keyani and Carolyn Morris and our own Studio Artist Deb Catesby (paintings). There are also works by the sculptors George Wagstaffe and Brian Cook. Exhibition texts have been provided by Becca Harris (edited by Denise Startin, Studio Artist).
