Power of Ten
Curated by Andy Christian

Andy Christian has sought out those whose work might unsettle the viewers, in the hope that visitors might leave this exhibition viewing the world in a slightly different way. He has tried to avoid the decorative in favour of works that might provoke a sense of disquiet or invoke wonder.

Artists exhibiting are Susanna Bauer, Ann Goddard, Sumi Perera, Anne Jackson, Kerry Jameson, Susie Gillespie, Katy Luxton, Shuna Rendel, Rozanne Hawksley and Caroline Dear.

Red Cross Series
Ruth Harries SITselect

The ‘Red Cross Series’ reflects on the invaluable work of the Red Cross Organization and the role of women during WW1. Using mixed media, the Crosses  re-present the diverse range of manual jobs including upholstering, trimming and other skilled operatives, undertaken by women. The Red Cross was instrumental in organizing the constant supply of soldiers clothing.

Organised by SIT, showing as part of the Museum's World War One programme.
