Experience Artwalk at The Art House on Wednesday 30 January, 17:00-21:00
Kicking the year off right, we’re pleased to present a new exhibition by Wakefield-based Yoke as well as a showcase from our latest graduate residency.
The Italian coffee and bakes that you’ve come to know and love will be available from Laura’s. Plus, our pop-up shop has transformed to become a permanent fixture in the foyer. Drop in to explore our range of beautiful handmade cards, gifts, homewares and more.
A new exhibition by Yoke, Undercurrent draws upon research and personal experience of the Aire & Calder navigation and its surrounding waterways.
The exhibition is the resulting showcase of Yoke’s project ‘Akkyduck’ through which Yoke have been exploring the stories past and present of the inland waterways, specifically Stanley Ferry, Wakefield.
Focusing on the physical and psychological tensions that arise from a rich history, re-appropriation after economic decline to a leisure pursuit, and from the constant pressure, flow and strength of the water Undercurrent hopes to explore the place where tranquillity, excitement, dread and fear collide.
Kindly supported by Arts Council England and The Art House.
