CMR ART GALLERY & PROJECT SPACE presents.... ' In The Dark Times'


Here are the details to the show happening at CMR in Redruth.  Unfortunately due to my current circumstances and unforeseen events I'm unable to show my new painting based on this year's theme.  I will at some point show the completed work, once things settle.  In the meantime check out this show and support the gallery for the success of the CMR over the last 6 months.

   


CMR ART GALLERY & PROJECT SPACE presents.... ' In The Dark Times'

Fri 14 - Sun 16 Dec

Open 12 - 5pm


Social Event Sat 1 Dec, 6-9pm


After opening its doors in March of this year, Redruth based Contemporary Art initiative CMR is proud to present its sixth show 'In the Dark Times' which is their first solely members only show featuring a selection of some of the now 30 plus members and opens at the Redruth venue on Friday 30 November.

As it’s almost impossible to not respond to the time of year in one way or another, 'In the Dark Times' will see CMR become a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the high street, and a potential antidote,
for many, to the vulgar commercialism of Christmas.  A show that digs deeper than the surface of kitsch fairy lights, tinsel and delves into the darker themes of Christmas past, the rituals of winter solstice and traces Christmas back to its mythical roots creating a show of wonder and surprise that is much more than just another Christmas exhibition.

In the Dark Times is also a celebration of the success of CMR’s first six months of exhibiting adventurous work that not only responds to the buildings physical spaces but that’s also flexible in its attitude towards mixing and crossing forms in presenting a thought provoking, exciting and engaging shows.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition there will also be talks and workshops available such as a mask making project with Sara Bowler, culminating in a masked ball, a 'Sunday Saturnalia', on 16th dec, 6pm.
