25 May – 7 September, Gallery One
Todmorden-based artist Richard Wincer has created an ambitious new sculptural installation for Gallery One.
Drawing on his interest in Wild West cabins and the occupation of new frontiers, and responding to the present-day plight of many people who have been forced to leave or lost their home, this site-specific work assumes the form of a makeshift dwelling constructed entirely from wooden canvas stretchers and panels.
The imagery on and within Shelter has been informed by the diverse collections held by Touchstones, and the personal experiences and creativity of the people attending a weekly soup kitchen at the old Rochdale Magistrates’ Court run by Rochdale Community Partnership.
Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm, Art Cafe: 10am-4pm. Please check during holiday periods.
FREE admission to exhibitions and some regular activities. Talks, tours, performances, workshops and special events have a cost.
