Dec 19 – Jan 2: March of Progress by Chris Foster
Gallery Hours: 12pm-5pm Mon – Fri
During his residency, Chris Foster will be developing a new installation called ‘The March of Development.’ The work will transform the front windows of the Art Hut into a giant revolving shadow lamp, exploring imagery taken from the vernacular of urban high rise development. The revolving tableau will grow and change over the course of the two week residency. The Artist will be present throughout the residency between the hours of 12:00 – 5:00 pm.
