The opening for Trying to Cope with things that aren’t Human (Part 1) attracted the largest number of visitors to a private view that AirSpace has had. Over 150 people came to the gallery on Broad Street in Hanley and it was worth it. Curated by Ian Brown the show had travelled from the David Cunnigham Projects gallery in San Fransisco, but the Stoke show boasted a few new works by artists such as Alan Currall, Heather and Ivan Morrison and Mariele Neudecker, never seen before.
What was brilliant about the opening were the familiar faces mixed in with the new. Local artists are still supporting the gallery and some people travelled from as far as Norwich and Liverpool (that’s not including David Cunningham who travelled from San Fransisco).
It was wonderful to see the gallery bursting at the seams with lively chatter and appreciation. The exhibition continues until the 2nd May and there are also limited edition publications for sale. For more information please visit www.airspacegallery.org or www.thingsthatarenthuman.com .
