• Exhibition: Quiet Spaces: A retrospective plus Lockdown Landscapes & Baskets


A joint exhibition by local artists Lee Shelden and Sally Roadknight.

Quiet Spaces reveals Lee Shelden’s desire for quiet, solitary spaces in a world where we are bombarded by noise and busyness. Her work focuses on small, simple, everyday things, presented through finely detailed pencil drawings. Lee says: ‘There is drama and mystery in the way the light changes the folds in a piece of fabric; warmth remains in a tattered moth’s wing’.

Sally Roadknight has always been inspired by the landscape, using and interpreting it in a variety of techniques and materials. During lockdown Sally has focused on a familiar and more intimate landscape – on drawing the everyday objects of her immediate surroundings and shaping baskets out of native grass and recycled fabrics.
