Thanks to our special relationship with Towner, we are pleased to be able to enjoy an exclusive out of hours viewing of one of Towner’s current exhibitions, TEN,
TEN, an exhibition of works from Towner’s own unique and extraordinary collection, celebrates the gallery’s tenth anniversary in its current location. It has been curated by a group of Towner’s team members who have worked and volunteered at the gallery since 2009 and who have chosen from works in the permanent Collection that have been acquired in the last ten years. The exhibition features an exciting range of painting, print and sculpture, and reveals new Collection works alongside some well-loved favourites.
Responding to the tenth anniversary exhibition, we’ve invited four original Blue Monkey members who have been part of the Network since its beginning in 2011, to talk about works in the exhibition. Members Sheila Hay, Paul Bartholomew and Mike and Steve Ring will select pieces from the exhibition which hold a particular interest or resonance for them, and will talk about the work from their own very unique perspectives.
We will also be joined by Stephanie Sutton. Steph will be working with Judith over the coming months to develop Blue Monkey Network’s future events programme and will eventually take over as Network organiser in 2020. Steph will also choose a piece of work in the exhibition to talk about from her own perspective.
Refreshments will be available (contributions welcome) or feel free to bring a bottle.
