Sat. 26 th May – Sat. 14th July.

There are only two weeks left of this uplifting and atmospheric exhibition capturing the subtle colours and textures of the natural world, through the eyes of Mary Whitthread.  ‘When technology offers an infinite array of the clearest of image, I can only offer a more personal diversion, of basic senses, light and shade, colour and texture that stimulate **a memory of somewhere or something, a feeling, almost intangible, slightly out of reach of the purely photograghical. These are my own…’Mary Whitthread
