Through this exploration, a few have branched out into working with film.

Subplots to a City

Subplots to a City: Ten years of In Certain Places explores how In Certain Places’ work has influenced approaches to art, culture and urban development by revisiting its activities over the last decade. Alongside photographs of all the projects, the publication also features interviews with artists and project participants, archival material, and contextual essays and contributions by Paul O’Neill, Jonathan Vickery,Owen Hatherley, Lubaina Himid, Sophie Hope, John Newling and Becky Shaw. As a case study, the book, which is edited by Gerrie van Noord, Charles Quick and Elaine Speight, provides a useful resource for other public art commissioners, artists and students interested in place-based art, while contributing to the critical discourse surrounding such practices.

The book launch will take place at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery on Wednesday 18th February and will include a short presentation by the writer and broadcaster Bob Dickinson, followed by a drinks reception. The event is invite only and all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the publication (RRP £15).

Oxheys Winter exhibition – Private View

Our Winter exhibition is always popular and a good excuse for a pre-Christmas party with opportunities to buy artist-made cards and small gifts at affordable prices. We hope you will join us again this year. For the first time it is not an ‘open’ exhibition but one featuring work by resident artists, along with a few invited artists whose work we like and who have shown us great support. Alongside the exhibition will be a good selection of ceramics, prints and craft items along with a unique selection of hand-made cards. For a truly different experience, come and do your Christmas shopping at Oxheys this year!

The Winter show opens on Thursday November 20th with a Private View from 6-8pm, refreshments available. Do come along and please tell your friends. The show is then open Fridays and Saturdays from 12-3pm until December 20th with a series of workshops running each Saturday with activities from drawing to cracker making, textiles to ceramics, photography to festive box-making.
