One Way Or Another II @ Smart Gallery!

One Way Or Another II is the current exhibition at Smart Gallery and features a range of work from Lesley Logue, Eric Great-Rex, Sarah Taylor & Lewis Paul. The artists were brought together by Logue who wanted to look at the ideas and process of her contemporaries, staging a show based around un finished works which can still comfortably sit in a gallery setting.

The works cross many areas including sculpture, print & ceramics, all mixed together across the 2 rooms at Smart Gallery. I really love the bear sculpture in the window, complete with its bullet holes and shooting markers, standing tall in the window silently watching the world outside drift by! Another favourite is the wicker boat. Its such a unique shape, instantly recognisable and yet due to the materials completely unpractical for taking out on the water. Perhaps in the future it will be given a skin but for now its great to see each beam tied into place, each knot taut against the pulling force of the bent rods which help give the piece its shape.

The show is running from the 4th of May until the 9th of June so if your looking for something to do then pop along to Smart, have a chat with whoever is looking after the gallery that day and see some cool work! You can also find out a little bit from the artists in the short video below!
