Greer Twiss: Theatre Workshop

Greer Twiss: Theatre Workshop

Event Details

The Greer Twiss: Theatre Workshop exhibition is a selective survey covering over forty years of the artist's practice.

The ruling themes of theatricality and workshop culture run through the exhibition as interpretational guides or starting points to give the viewer a purchase on what is a rich and diverse body of work as well as a consistent set of sculptural obsessions.

The exhibition is not exhaustive, it does not represent all aspects of Greer's oeuvreby any means - but it will go some way to showing why Greer Twiss' career as a sculptor in this country has been an outstanding one.

Free Admission thanks to the generosity of three private patrons.
