Open: Monday to Friday, 9am - 4.30pm

'Sweet Velvet' explores the artists' playful obsession with texture, colour and form. Simplified shapes evoke the body and natural landscapes, creating an intimate atmosphere where the pieces interact with the architecture on an introspective scale.
With Marine coming from a background in printmaking and Elizabeth coming from a background in jewellery design, both artists find ways to challenge the surface of the image with a tactile and delicate approach.
