The Art Space will be host to the “Visible Mending Project” organised by Carol Parker, and now going on tour! Starting May 2nd in Wisbech, then travelling on to Unique Cottage Studios.
See here for more.
All the postcards have been made by artists across the country. Various methods were used to mend gaps and tears made to each postcard. A really interesting project and great pieces of artwork. I look forward to seeing more being added as they go on tour.
Visible Mending Exhibition originally shown in:
