Sami Greenhalgh, BA (Hons) Fine Art student at University Centre Somerset, has had artwork accepted into a project to brighten up the frontages of shops and empty units in Weston-super-Mare.
‘Weston-super-Shop Windows’, led by Weston Artspace and supported by Culture Weston, marks the recent re-opening of high street trade following lockdown, with window art installations designed by local artists.
Sami’s installation, ‘Evolve’, arises from research into life cycles and new beginnings symbolized by seed pods. She has created a series of giant, hand-cut, sculptural seed pods from fluted plastic board and enhanced them with coloured lights and reflective flooring.
The exhibition will be on display in Weston’s High Street, Orchard Street, Regent Street and the Sovereign Centre, where you will find Sami’s installation, until around the middle of May.
