An exhibition linked to the local ‘Jack in the Green’ Festival.
Over the last few decades, green has become an ideological and political colour as never before. At other times in history it has been associated with a host of contradictory ideas, which range from evil superstition and bad luck to love rebirth and health. It has been a courtly colour, a romantic colour, a dangerous colour, and a symbol of fecundity.
For their forthcoming exhibition ‘The Language of Green’, SoCo artists have been challenged to make a personal response to this colour through their own practice as painters, printmakers, sculptors, mixed media and textile artists.

Thursday 23 April to Tuesday 5 May 2015.
