Delicate forms of unusual work
HOW artists respond to materials characterised by unusual delicacy and high refinement is the theme of a new exhibition in Brent.
The contemporary group display, Ethereal Material, will investigate the ethereality of materials and how their fragility can be explored further.
Curator Lorenzo Belenguer said: "I was very impressed by the speed artists respond to current events and the different ways it is portrayed. Visual artists are supposed to work on materials that last and I am very interested in showing artists that work in the opposite direction with ethereal materials or being presented in an airy manner."
Work submitted by Nick Baelz, Lorenzo Belenguer, Abigail Dace (pictured), Richard Egere, Josie Graff, Alex Halfin, Emma Hobbins, Jolanta Jagiello, Mali, Belinda Opie and Sara Scott.

Snapping up delights of gardens
A GROCERY store-turned-art gallery in Harlesden is exhibiting pictures of gardens taken by Liz Eddison.
After leaving Harrow School of Art, she went on to work in the photographic department of Sotheby Auctioneers and then for advertising photographer, Bob Wallis as assistant and stylist and for some years following this she became a photographer's agent.
Frustrated with being on the business side of photography and not behind the lens, Liz decided to combine her passion for gardening with photography and founded a photographic rights company.
