Riverside Gallery at the Old Town Hall : Virginia Woolf and the Hogarth Press

In conjunction with the Richmond Literature Festival, this exhibition will celebrate a century since Virginia and Leonard Woolf began publishing in Richmond. Named after the house they moved to in 1915, they established the Hogarth Press in spring 1917, to self-publish and also to provide an important opportunity for writers and artists to showcase their work uncensored and in small print runs.

About the exhibition

Through an exploration of the Hogarth Press, its unique aesthetic and the opportunity it presented for book illustration; contemporary artists will be given the opportunity to respond to Virginia Woolf, the Hogarth Press and its legacy.

Orleans House Gallery : Oui Neun Sprunt and Sarah Hacking-Brian: Lose Your Mind

"I am intrigued by a lady, paralysed from the neck down, on TV news. She feeds herself chocolate using a robotic arm controlled by her thoughts. I decide to explore thoughts, to create a space where thoughts exist."

About the exhibition

Lose Your Mind is an exploratory journey through the mind, culminating in an installation and collaborative video with singer-songwriter Sarah Hacking-Brian, highlighting the everyday struggles of mental illness. The hope is that this artwork will help break the stigma surrounding these illnesses that affect so many with an overriding message of 'You are NOT alone' The work incorporates sumi-e (Japanese ink painting), copper and aluminium leaf, plaster, light, sound design and video, combining to create a rich and highly textural approach.

This project has teamed up with the charity Mind, which will benefit from the proceeds of artwork sales during this run.
