‘SUBJECTS AND STRUCTURES’

Exhibition with music


1st August to 15th August  2015


OPENING NIGHT SATURDAY

 1st August 7pm


CLOSING NIGHT SATURDAY

 15th August 7pm


This exhibition is a duo show of work by Derby artist and musician Walt Shaw and visual artist Andrew Coates from Birmingham. Their work displays similarities in approach, but with distinctly separate voices in style.

The work consists of constructed sculptures, both relief and free-standing, assemblages and collage. They are made from wood, metal, plastics and a variety of objects, carefully chosen from urban, rural and coastal sites as well as from junk stalls, charity shops, skips etc. The objects all have their own resonance and histories and the juxtaposition of different types produces a definite magic, where each participant celebrates the other.

The exhibition, ‘Subjects and Structures’, opens on Saturday, August 1st and runs to Saturday August 15th. The exhibition is open each Wednesday to Saturday, 12 to 5pm.

The exhibition has two musical performances, which will celebrate the richness and complexity of improvisation, as well as reflecting similar open-ended processes of working by which the art works have achieved their uniqueness. The musicians are significant improvisers on the national and in some cases, the international scene,
including Derby’s very own Corey Mwamba.

The opening is Saturday, August 1st at 7 pm, 
 the band is on at 8.30 pm.

It has Bruce Coates on saxophones, Alan Jenkins on bass clarinet, Lorin Halsall on bass and electronics, and Walt Shaw on percussion and electronics.

The exhibition closure is on Saturday 15th August at 7pm.
The band is on at 8 pm.

It has Paul Dunmall on saxophones, Bruce Coates on saxophones, Corey Mwamba on vibraphone, Seth Bennett on double bass, Mark Sanders on drums and percussion and Walt Shaw on percussion and electronics. The show and music are free and offer a rich experience for eyes and ears. Do come down and enjoy it all!
