THOUGHT  WORMS & BEYOND: Coming Friday 2nd March 2018!

Our next exhibiing artist in 2018 is Level Best ARTCO volunteer Alison Hirst;

"This collection of work includes paintings and drawings created during a period when I was struggling with mental health problems. The combination of a life-long love of nature and newly discovered drawing skills, offered much needed respite from the anxiety I was experiencing as a cancer survivor.
I quickly discovered that charcoal, graphite and pastel would become my favoured media – the tactile sensation of powder and grit feeling earthy and energetic on my fingertips. As I smudged, scraped and swept marks across paper, coaxing to life images of natural forms around me, I began to reconnect with the vibrant world from which I had sadly come adrift.
Art became my healer and still supports me when the thought worms start to stir again". - Alison Hirst, March 2018
