New Blood at International & Meme


New Blood at The International and MEME, Slater St. 5 to 14 September 2008

A most enjoyable show of works by mostly recent graduates of North West art schools.
Organised by the energetic Lindsey Tetlow whose work we remember from the Hope Uni degree show just a few months ago. She was helped by Bethany Shiner, also from Hope Uni and of course The Art Organisation who manage these two buildings.

There’s a good selection of work by the 15 artists. I especially like Mat Duff’s surreal photographs and Tracy E. Watt‘s honest paintings on drawings of women. In the back room of MEME Elli Logan’s ‘Stricken Lives’ is an interesting installation and video in response to the drowning of the village of Mardale to create the Haweswater reservoir in the 1930’s.
