A Clay Hand
Moon Grove is pleased to announce ‘A Clay Hand’ by Patrick Hartigan, the artist and writer’s first exhibition outside of Australia and New Zealand. As a series of new paintings that open a conversation with the gallery’s Georgian architecture and garden, the works in the exhibition acknowledge a debt to historical and contemporary self-taught painting in Australia and Manchester, while showing a gritty amalgamation of unmonumental abstraction and figuration. Influences include early renaissance artist Piero dela Francesca and the Scottish-born Australian painter-wanderer Ian Fairweather.
Maker Space Showcase
Initiated in April 2021 and continuing to date, the Maker Space has been host to a wide variety of artists and makers – latterly including collaboration with artist members of Disability Arts Cymru.
