La Niña Aurelia

‘La Niña Aurelia’ by Dolores Phelps

Exhibition in Gallery Two

Sunday 19 November – Sunday 3 December | Admission Free

This MPhil/PhD illustration research project is a visual response to a memoir left to Dolores Phelps by her late mother, who was one of the 4,000 children evacuated from Bilbao by the ship Habana to Southampton in May 1937.

Dolores’ images are an interpretation of her mother’s memories of living in Bilbao during the Spanish Civil War - air raids, starvation, then the terrible voyage and starting life in the UK. Her work is also shaped by extensive research into the collective experiences and memoirs of other Basque refugee children who had to flee their homes and families.

Opening times vary, please call ahead to check before making a special visit. Tel: 01453 763394
