Take Over 2024 — Lucy Turner: Close But No Varz

Tue – Thu, 11am – 4pm; Sat, 1 – 4pm

Shieldfield Art Works

Close But No Varz is a project exploring how the pressure of being a working class artist can turn passion into obsession.

What happens when a vase no longer works as a vase? What happens when an artist no longer works as an ‘artist’?

Take Over is Shieldfield Art Works’ annual programme showcasing emerging artists, as part of its commitment to support up-and-coming talent. Although each exhibition is individual, they are all united by thinking deeply about value and the importance of care. Join SAW for three unique exhibitions featuring artists Octavia Hands, Maura Hawkes, Bethan Harris, Liam Aldridge, Anna Muddiman, Lucy Thomas & Lucy Turner.
