This is part two of a two-part exhibition that began at the Godfrey Pilkington Art Gallery in its historical home of the Gamble Building and concludes in it’s new location of the World of Glass. ‘Presentation’ is an exhibition that showcases the artwork that was produced during a fortnight period at the Godfrey Pilkington Gallery in the Gamble Building, where studio spaces were created in the gallery. Artists worked in the gallery showing visitors the processes behind creating their art works and allowing artists to share their practice with each other. In this intensive period 12 artists have produced new artworks in the gallery studios; a selection of the artworks are shown here at the new Godfrey Pilkington Gallery, covering a diverse range of disciplines including painting, drawing, photography and sculpture.
