Cloudy – a few isolated showers

23 November 2020—24 November 2021

In times of uncertainty, the sky is always there; blue, limitless and clear. Except for clouds. The sky evokes strong sensations in art, poetry and the gallery.

Clouds gathered in the Whitchell gallery - with historical and contemporary painting, photography, sound, watercolour and sculpture, curated by Jenny Long.
