In the Spotlight
Et in Arcadia lego, Paul Collinson‘s large-scale photo realist painting (pictured below), has been given a whole room to itself at Dean Clough Galleries, following its appearance in the John Moores exhibition. Deciphering the ideology of landscape, Collinson’s starting point for his paintings are scale models he constructs himself.
13 June – 6 September 2015, Dean Clough Galleries, Halifax, Yorkshire.

100 makers and designers will be selling their work, selected by the people behind the MADE Art Fair brand. The fair will also feature live music from The FB Pocket Orchestra, entry to the West Dean Gardens (included in the fair’s ticket price), food stalls and a vintage tea room.
19-21 June 2015, West Dean College, Chicester.
An exhibition of alumni from Swansea’s Foundation Art and Design course celebrates over 105 years of ‘the Foundation pattern’ of teaching in the city.
