What’s on at The Art House

Jill McKnight
Everything Is Still Floating

Everything Is Still Floating is an exhibition of new work by artist Jill McKnight, developed over the course of a two-month residency at The Art House.

The show presents a mix of sculpture, prints, works on paper, writing, and audio work. Each piece explores themes familiar to McKnight’s practice – feminism, the working-class experience, the connection between traditional industries and domestic life – whilst weaving the artist’s personal, familial and community stories through the exhibition.
