THIS EXHIBITION HAS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE VIEW OUR CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Curated by Sandra Porter RWA, Gentle Geometry brings together the works of four artists who delve into the possibilities of making meaning through geometric shapes and forms in various artistic mediums, including painting, sculpture, and printmaking.

Geometric shapes were central to the ideas and representations of the late Denny Long RWA. Recent works on paper by sculptor Tim Harrisson RWA suggest an evolving structure of landscape. Carol Robertson RWA has consistently embraced the circle as a central motif throughout her career. Additionally, Sandra Porter RWA's 'Stations' series reinterprets the Stations of the Cross through the lens of abstraction.

This is a free exhibition in the Kenny Gallery, upstairs at the RWA, and runs alongside our major exhibition, These Mad Hybrids: John Hoyland and Contemporary Sculpture 

Join the exhibitions curator, Sandra Porter RWA, for a FREE exhibition tour on Saturday 2 March 10:30am
