Join us on Thursday 16th June for an in-conversation between writer and critic Hettie Judah and Candida Powell Williams, from 6.30-8pm at our Dilston Gallery.
Together we will explore Candida’s new exhibition Tilt Shift: Shadows of the Seasoned Sun, within the context of her vast research practice which explores the mystic, mythical and metaphorical associations with the female body, motherhood and histories of landscape.
The exhibition will remain open to the public on the day until 6.15pm at both Dilston & Lake Gallery so that you can spend more time with the work before we meet Hettie and Candida.
Refreshments will be served at Dilston Gallery from 6pm. If you need assistance with your visit please contact us with your query and we will do everything to make sure you have a positive experience.
