Phoenix Futures: Meet the artists
We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest art exhibition! ‘Perceptions’ is an exhibition by people in recovery, inspired by the perspectives of the residents of Phoenix Futures’ Possil based Scottish Residential Service. It is to open in our donated gallery space from 16th October to 10th November 2017.
You can take the opportunity to meet the artists on Tuesday 17th October from 1.30pm in Skypark 1 Reception.
The exhibition is the product of a series of creative groups run by artist and former Skypark exhibitor Jenny Robertson, on behalf of Phoenix Futures Scottish Residential Service, which supports individuals and communities in their recovery from drug and alcohol misuse.
Commenting on the exhibition Jenny Robertson, who will also show some of her own work on the same theme, said: “The collection is called Perceptions as each resident will depict something they perceive as important to them, or something as seen from their perspective: a narrative will accompany each piece to give the viewer an insight into the mind-set of each artist.”
Jenny added: “My pieces depict ways in which perception can be distorted according to the viewers’ own experiences, anxieties and fears.”
