Refreshments provided

Through September into October we have a two photographic exhibitions, Lost in Flowers by Dinah Kazakoff and Portrait of a City by Fanoulla Georgiou.

Lost in Flowers is new collection of images photographed by Dinah Kazakoff. Showing how during a time of darkness and despair that nature still holds out its arms and gives us beauty beyond measure.

Portrait of a City is a new body of work by Fanoulla Georgiou, showing photography, mixed media and poetry, to illustrate the concepts of space, existence and vision.

Her focus is New York, on detailing and observation; she breaks down her subject matter into layers of image, text and colour. From her perspective, everything is viewed as temporary and is a creative exploration of the world she has suddenly found herself in.

Monthly Featured Artist – Eden Leeds

Each month we want to share the work of an artist that inspires and encourages creative people at all levels to share stories about their work, journey, and life. We want to bring our audience closer to the process of making, thinking, and what it means to be an artist today.

This month we feature our artist interview with Josephine Sams who was selected by our volunteer curator, Parker Duma, from our recent To Portray or To Portrait online exhibition.
