Surface Gallery is very excited and making preliminary preparations for Tom Lovelace's 'The Cut' exhibition that is due to open Friday 3rd July. Tom is expected to be in the next couple of days working with our volunteers on his return to Surface Gallery to exhibit a solo body of photographic work. His images which he himself crafts, installs, and excavates are of industrial scenes, which ultimately create ephemeral objects and environments that exist solely for the camera. Each scene is constructed life size, presenting disconcerting scenarios that lie in the cusp between reality and fiction.
On Thursday 2nd July from 6-8pm there is a Private Viewing of Tom's work, which is not to be missed! It gives you the chance to view his work and meet the artist and also listen to a talk given by him at 7pm.
Here, at Surface we are also in the preliminary stages of collecting submissions for our Open Show exhibition which will be held 27th July - 7th August. We are receiving daily applications that show promising artists working in a variety of media. It is still not too late to enter, as the deadline has now been extended to 9th July. An application form is avaliable for download from our website, so have a look and also browse our upcoming events!
