JANE EVANS: NORTH WALES HOLIDAY PHOTOS
With our maiden year in Chorlton we were very excited to be asked to be part of the Chorlton Arts Festival!
We are fortunate enough to be showcasing the work of local artist Jane Evans (MMU graduate), she will be displaying a piece entitled ‘North Wales Holiday Photos’.
This piece is around 40 different collections of photographs of holidays in North Wales that span a period from 1930-1990. The photographs represent the community of the holidaymaker, they exhibit a sense of belonging to the region though these people have never lived there.
It raises questions around place history and belonging and what a community can be.
The festival runs from Friday 17th May to Sunday 26th May and is FREE ENTRY! So no excuses, come and absorb some free art and why not have a delicious beer/cider or fine cocktail while you’re at it daaahling!?
There is also a sneaky peak preview night on Thursday 16th May – 7pm to 9pm for those who can’t wait! This night is also free, wonderful stuff!
