Notts artist, Julian Bray, as featured in our May/Jun 2018 edition of Made, returns to The Harley Gallery with his third exhibition ‘Lost Architecture’.
Julian continuously develops new ways to perceive the world through his artworks. He celebrates shape and colour, which he uses to influence the viewers’ perception of their surroundings, skillfully transforming and reimaging architecture into eye-catching compositions.
Sculptor Michelle Reader has been making art from waste for over 22 years. In her work, she asks audiences to reflect on our over-consumption of natural resources and how we can reduce waste through re-use and recycling of materials.
Through a series of sculptural installations made from an extraordinary array of ordinary waste, Michelle highlights the links between the things we consume and the destruction of wildlife habitats, while at the same time portraying the beauty and wonder of the natural world. In her exhibition ‘Force of Nature’, three large sculptures are accompanied by film, sketches and preliminary drawings. Join Michelle on Friday 27th November 2020 for an online discussion.

Sculptor Phil Neal, featured in our Sept/Oct 2020 edition of Made, has created four humourous, mechanical sound contraptions which invite play and interaction. An old church organ, a guitar, several pianos and over 12 brass instruments have been pressed into service to create four sound machines. Come and enjoy the Heath Robinson world of Phil Neal.
Michelle and Phil are both members of the Harley Studio Group. The Harley Studios are home to over 20 artists, conservators, ceramists and sculptors.
