The Lightness of Being
Last chance to see Amanda Baron’s new collection of glass works that have been inspired by a week-long residency at Sweeney’s Bothy on the Isle of Eigg. Baron, a skilled stained glass conservator, creates works that are influenced by details from the landscape through the application of traditional techniques, such as kiln fired enamel, which she applies to mouth blown glass.

Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception
This summer Compton Verney presents an overview exhibition that explores artists continuing fascination with the optical in art. Recent works by Jim Lambie, Liz West and Lothar Götz are put into context alongside works by stars of the Op Art movement such as Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely and Carlos Cruz-Diez. Tracing this history back to artists such as Georges Seurat and the influence of colour theories from the scientific community, this exhibition considers the ways that artists explore visual perception.
