Curated by Wirksworth-based artists Amanda Wray and Johnny White, featuring the work of Andi Dakin, Tracey Keeping, The Singh Twins, Andy Plant and Tim Hunkin.
The exhibition takes the theme of family, linking their family home town, the Festival as a family occasion and the wide family appeal of White-Wray’s interactive work.
In The Maltings (formerly known as the Parish Rooms) will be a selection of work by Johnny White and Amanda Wray which is loosely based on their own family experiences. Alongside this will be a new series of paintings inspired by family photographs by fellow Wirksworth artist, Tracy Keeping, and an animation, funded by Arts Council England, by the Singh Twins.
In St. Mary’s Church, continuing the family theme, Hull-based artist Andi Dakin will be exhibiting a new body of work entitled Church Urchins. This will be a colourful and playful presence throughout the church.
Outdoors, close by to The Maltings and St. Mary’s, experience a family holiday of the future in The Astronauts Caravan, a collaborative work by Andy Plant and Tim Hunkin.
