Beyond Plastic


Featuring guest artists, curated by lead artist Michele Webber
Exhibition Open 5th - 30th August

An exhibition that explores our relationship with plastic, how it is impacting the seas, beaches and environmental landscape of East Anglia and beyond.

There are two parts to the exhibition:

A selection of solo artists, schools and organisations displaying projects and installations is complemented by an open exhibition of artworks in the Girling room.

*Artists were challenged to use materials already in the workspace rather than buying new supplies where possible.
