MALCOLM SMITH GALLERY
Scott Eady: 1 AND ALL
5 March to 14 April 2018
Opening Saturday 3 March, 2.30PM
A drainlayer, a fabricator, a builder, a Scout, a potter – unlikely partnerships, initiated through Scott Eady’s personal connections to local residents will develop to create a space for exploration and consideration, bringing an understanding of the local and connection to the immediate.
We want your woggles: Scott Eady, 1 And ALL
a loop or ring of leather or cord through which the ends of a Scout’s neckerchief are threaded.
Scott Eady’s exhibition, 1 and ALL, opens at Malcolm Smith Gallery in March. As part of the exhibition he would like to include woggles of all shapes, sizes, colours and materials.
If you would like to be part of the installation, simply drop your woggles into us at Uxbridge Arts Culture or post to PO Box 38591, Howick.
All woggles will be returned following the conclusion of the exhibition.

9 April – 12 May
As part of the Arts Out East Festival in May, Veronica Herber will be creating an installation at UXBRIDGE.
Veronica Herber began using masking tape as a medium during her visual arts degree as it offers immediacy and the ability to create works at scale. Alongside her trademark tape fabric and large-scale outdoor works Herber also creates indoor installations utilising Japanese Washi tape on paper.
Her installations deal with materiality and transformation and aim to engage the audience by encouraging observing and ‘staying’ with the piece, made all the more poignant by its temporary nature.
