Artists include Harry Pye, Nicola Hicks, James F Johnston, Corin Johnson, Cedar Lewisohn, Kate Murdoch, Gordon Beswick, and Morrissey & Hancock.
From as far back as anyone can remember people have built boats that are too big for any one individual to push out to sea. There has been an element of collaboration and team work in getting the boat to take off and set sail. James Johnston and I have carefully picked a team of artists. Each one has a way of looking at the world that appeals to us or has a story we want them to tell. We hope this show features enough wit, warmth and wisdom to delight and inspire you all. Please note this exhibition is only here for a few days so come and see it before it sails away into the sunset. - Harry Pye
