    What can you see, hear, smell, taste and feel?

    The five senses allow our brains to perceive and understand the external world, but how can they affect us physically or even emotionally? It has long been argued that viewing lighter shades of the colour blue can slow down our heart rate, and that smells and music can unlock memories in those of us who can no longer recall them instinctively.

    Light Blue aims to question how emotions can be explored through our senses. To do this, invited artists Alex Margo Arden (London), Hannah Bitowski (Liverpool), Kitty Jones (Chester) & Michael Lacey (Liverpool) have created a range of artworks including sound pieces, scented installations and tactile sculptures for visitor interaction.

    As part of this programme, The Royal Standard has also paired with WHISC (Women’s Health Information & Support Centre) to host well-being activities in the gallery, including yoga sessions for carers and those receiving care in our local community.

    Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 12-5pm

    Viewings throughout the week are available by appointment only
