By Hand / On Foot , Art Exhibition at Somerset College
The current art exhibition ‘By Hand/On Foot’ in the White Space Gallery at Somerset College features work by textile artist Debbie Smith and Photographer Zac Mead.
The exhibition includes a photograph by Zac of actor Michael Sheen, which was originally commissioned by the Welsh National Gallery and hung in the National Portrait Gallery in London - (see photograph above).
Zac’s photography redefines the notions of beauty by amplifying the mundane and overlooked expressions and locations in everyday life.
Debbie’s unique 3D Installations make icons of oft-ignored aspects of our surroundings and her tenacity with materials makes us look again. Debbie worked on-site at the College interacting with passers by including staff and students whilst creating the stunning 4mx4m Ship to Shore piece.
The exhibition runs until 27th November.
