Please check for opening times and for up to date information, if you wish to visit this exhibition, as some gallery areas are temporarily closed.
This fascinating exhibition features the work of 34 self taught artists, some of whom face personal barriers including health issues, disability or social circumstances.
Joanne B Karr
'Pair of Looped Boots'
(Please excuse the selfie!)
I loved these so much, it was amazing to see the layers inside the pieces.
Wire, stitch and metal plate
Mixed Media Sculpture
This piece was made from items washed up by the Thames river.
Dalton M Ghetti
'Small Is Beautiful'
Graphite and Wood
Ghetti produced these sculptures onto discarded carpenters'pencils to challenge himself to create the smallest sculptures he could physically produce.
He used a sewing needle as a carving tool, and each piece could take up to a year to produce as he could only work on them for up to two hours a day, as the work was so intense.
'Bridal Headdress II'
