    faithfool
    26 October - 27 November
    Guild on Show

    An elderly man, disturbed by scientific evidence that suggests the moon is gradually receding from the planet Earth, endeavors to invent ways to slow down what could become a disastrous event for mankind. His creative mind, extraordinary faith and determination leads him to transform the roof of his humble home into a site for his interstellar operations. Is this a case of lunar lunacy or simply a man on a moral mission?

    Audacity of Faith
    Anne Walmsley
    19 June - 17 July

    This exhibition is the second Guild On Show exhibition for 2009.

    In this exhibition I continue to look at transitional phases triggered by grief, loss, faith and reflection. These works use architectural spaces, found materials and garments as metaphors for personal histories and states of becoming. The painted works use interior spaces as imagery to depict quiet reflection and the use of manipulated garments symbolize the 'wearing' and 'shedding' of ways and beliefs.
    - Anne Walmsley
