Connie Liebschner
The recent Loughborough University graduate presents several digital and screen prints that explore the way we experience light and its relationship to time and place.

Colour Wheel
‘Colour Wheel’ is the final exhibition in a year-long programme of alumni group shows that celebrates ‘170 years of art education in Leeds’. It brings together the work of three female artists: Georgina Starr, Liz West and Georgia Lucas-Going.
Until 27 January 2017, Vernon Street Gallery, Leeds College of Art, Leeds.

Elena Kendall-Aranda, Digital Artist Residency
An intervention using Google Maps’ Street View feature, Elena Kendall-Aranda has populated the abandoned Spanish town of Oreja with ghostly figures. The work brings to light the country’s 2,800 deserted villages, considering their past and the strange new uses for them in the present as unlikely centres for tourism and health.
Until 31 December 2016,

I’m Feeling So Virtual I’m Violent
The seduction and all-consuming experience of online addiction is the topic of Ha Ha Gallery’s latest show. Information overwhelm and trashy consumption appear in video, installation and wall-based works from Claire Boyd, Liv Fontaine, Neil Haas, Vanessa Omoregie, Sarah Roberts, and Rafal Zjako.
Until 14 January 2017, Ha Ha Gallery, 9-11 Old Northam Road, Southampton.

Treebeard and the Trolls or Politician
In time for Hull City of Culture, artist Julian Barnard (unofficially) adds to next year’s programme a new public sculpture in the city’s popular Pearson Park. Located near residential streets, the gargoyle-like tree sculpture has taken almost a year to develop, its meaning, features and expression in part inspired by the antics of UK and US politicians who have made 2016 so memorable.
Ongoing, Pearson Park, Princes Avenue, Hull.
