Art show begins at Sledmere

SCARBOROUGH artist Kane Cunningham is curating an exhibition of contemporary art at the Triton Gallery, Sledmere House.

Selected artists have been invited to exhibit work in the gallery that explores the narratives of space, the politics of now, the local landscape and the history of The Wolds.

The artists work in a variety of mediums to include sound, print, digital technology, textiles, paint, photography, performance and sculpture.

Kane Cunningham, artist and curator of the show, said: “Sledmere is a space where artists can explore new ideas, experiment with new technology and offer something different to the viewing public.

“The work is often challenging and indeed often thought-provoking.

“In the exhibition we have several political works that explores government cutbacks, an installation from invited artists worldwide and photographs from Buenos Aires.

“These are photographs of The Mothers’ of the Plaza de Mayo, which is a unique organization of Argentine women who have become human rights activists in order to achieve a common goal which is to find their missing children.”

The exhibition which includes 10 artists is on until July 29, from 11am to 4pm. The gallery is closed on Saturdays and Mondays.
