Opening on Monday 27th November as part of Exeter's "16 Days of Action" is an exhibition of new printmaking and mixed media work by Catherine Cartwright and Bev Samler on the theme of strength in women.
CoLab is Exeter's well being hub that supports people to play a positive role in their communities. They have a beautiful gallery space in their entrance foyer with light that floods through from floor to ceiling windows.
Catherine Cartwright and Bev Samler have made new work for this exhibition. Bev, a South African artist now living in Devon, has often made wok on this theme having worked with communities in South Africa affected by violence, especially against women. Catherine was an artist in residence at Exeter's womens' refuge for five months until its closure in March 2014, making a film about the closure with filmmaker Josh Gaunt, 'The Last Resident'. This was followed by an arts project in 2015 'The Refuge Manifesto & Art House', an art project with and for women affected by abuse which culminated with an animated film about the nature of refuge (facilitated by artist Nicci Wonnacott and filmmaker Josh Gaunt).
