Moments To See:
  • Peninsula Arts Gallery, Plymouth University

Save event

It can sometimes be hard to notice and appreciate the world around us, we can so often be lost in a preoccupied world; yet we can find creative ways to disrupt our distracted habits.

This workshop, led by Duncan Moss, Lecturer in Clinical Psychology, Plymouth University and artist Karen Howse, introduces us to ideas and practices of ‘Contemplative Seeing’ – using something as simple as a pencil or pen, or reclaiming our gadgets as cameras, we can mark and celebrate moments of real awareness of the world.

If you have a phone/camera, pen and paper please bring it along, otherwise please just bring your eyes.

Date: Thursday 27 April

Visions Season - Visions of the past and future

Visions as a concept speaks of imagination, experience and the way we see the world and the effects of this can be seen no more clearly than in the work of contemporary artists today. For the 2017 Plymouth Contemporary, the selected artists have explored the theme ‘Visions’ in all its forms, from political to social, utopian to dystopian and more, and is representative of the turbulent social and political landscape today.
