Mary Street is quickly becoming a pretty happening part of town.What was once a very much underused part of the city is being brought to life and it just keeps getting better. Alongside B&B, DED residing at number 99 are now are now making the street a pretty artsy area with semi-regular exhibitions and parties in the lovely little space they are now calling home.
They are kicking off their 2014 calendar of exhibitions with a rather interesting and definitely unique group show looking at the relationship between British pastoral traditions and contemporary culture.
A mixed media show, Folk Art, Let’s Dance features artists, makers, photographers, sculptors and film-makers exploring the lines between tradition and behaviour.
Their aim is to provide a plethora of art which gives a generous nod towards local tradition, craft and culture.
What they offer is definitely food for thought that certainly has the potential to make you cascade into a state of curiosity and wonder.
The show includes piecesfrom: Julie Ann Horan for Warp Films / Leah Gordon / Kid Acne / Luke Insect / Liam Sparkes / Katie Soze / Anthony Bennett / Gillian Nott / Lydia Leigh / Ken Goodall / Fuzi UVTPK / DED / Handsworth Sword Dancers.
