I was running errands on foot on the hottest day of the year so far so when I passed the city museum, with his cool inviting atrium… it was a no brainer!
I love The Wilson, it’s always beautifully curated, the permanent gallery is very interesting and it has an amazing shop full of beautifully crafted objects by local artists. Definitively worth a look if you need a present.
Anyway, I made my way to the second floor to see the space dedicated to Katy Welsh, the current artist in residence (till August 25th).
A joyous sense of colour, screen printing, mix media, fabric, paper, block printing… all combined with a nod to Matisse, and the Bloomsbury Group…
I loved it.
It’s not a big exhibition, but it’s a delightful way to step out of ”life’ and take a breath or two in the peace and quiet. I highly recommend it.
