The Inbetween – Rose Maher

Tuesday 30 May – Sunday 25 June

Rose Maher’s paintings explore perceptions of reality, of dreams and what lies inbetween. They create spaces and states which offer the viewer opportunities to find new ways of sensing both inner and outer landscapes so that a new awareness can unfold. The paintings often start with an emotion, and an urge to connect in a non-linear way. They are an attempt to examine deeper parts of the unconscious while surveying the untapped narratives and pathways in our lives.

Ruskin Mill College End of Year Exhibition

Saturday 8 July – Sunday 10 September

The summer exhibition represents and celebrates every student who has attended Ruskin Mill College in the previous academic year. During their time at college, each student follows a personalised curriculum based on Ruskin Mill Trust’s unique method, Practical Skills Therapeutic Education. Their student journey offers a wealth of opportunities, reflected in the rich displays of craft, art and culture offered here.
