Cathy Lomax Exhibition: a preview

Last Friday, there was a lot of drilling going on at the museum, I thought perhaps the ropey canopy was being taken down, but no it was Sophie Cummings and Cathy Lomax putting up the new exhibition in the small section of the main gallery. I hadn't expected such a hands on approach to hanging, but here are a few of the photos I took, they give a bit of a taster of the exhibition which will be officially open to the public tomorrow:

The museum's website describes the exhibition like this:
'Cathy Lomax’s work is a contemporary and personal exploration of popular culture, beauty, celebrity and identity. Her projects have included an ongoing Film Diary, ‘Mock Tudor’ inspired by the art of Hans Holbein, and American Tan, which explores Hollywood glamour.
In 2016, Lomax won the inaugural Contemporary British Painting Prize. The competition was organised by Contemporary British Painting in order to celebrate and share the many important and exciting contemporary painters working in Britain today.
This exhibition showcases recent and paintings and three dimensional work concerned with reflection, the gaze and female identity.'
To find out more, come to Cathy's free lunchtime talk tomorrow, Wednesday 6 September at 12.30pm, or the Friends' talk at 7.30pm on Thursday 28 September. Tickets £6/8
