4th June – 27th June 2021 Unit 9 Gallery
Patricia’s felt pieces are inspired by the landscape, seascapes and elements in nature. She spends hours watching and photography the sea observing the power the waves generate splashing onto the rocks and cliffs and the intriguing effects of colour and light generated by the aspects of weather at different times of the day. Pat Belson considers felting to be akin to painting with wool and is a favoured material to work with. Lending itself beautifully to capturing the textures and colours of aspects of nature.
In our first exhibition in the Unit 9 gallery since closing in November for building refurbishments, we are pleased to welcome back Unit 9 collective, a long standing part of South Square Centre.
South Square is a collection of 19th Century workers cottages, in the old Yorkshire village of Thornton, famous for its Brontë connections and its impressive 20-arch viaduct.
Renovated as a community arts centre in 1982, South Square Centre is now home to ten studio spaces for a variety of artists, as well as a gallery, community spaces, archive, fine art framers, bar and a cafe.
The centre hosts community events and activities for all ages, including an ongoing workshop programme and provides community spaces available to hire.
