#LeftTurn by Manuela Hübner. EXHIBITION OPENING!

#LeftTurn by Manuela Hübner. EXHIBITION OPENING!

#LeftTurn
An exhibition of 125 left-handed portraits and new work by Manuela Hübner
11 March – 4 May 2017

Opening Night Saturday 11 March 2017, 6 pm – 10 pm
All welcome

Right-handed since childhood, Manuela was forced to use her non-dominant left hand in the summer of 2016. What became apparent was a lot of untapped potential.

Continuing to explore the left, she roamed through cafés and public places, sketching people.

Espresso Library eventually became her preferred hunting ground. Here, the idea of a Wall of Faces was born.

The drawings on show were created over a period of three and a half months and document the journey of what happens when you explore, play and persevere.

They offer interesting insights into the peaks, troughs and plateaus of a learning curve whilst illustrating the stages of artistic style development and the sheer power of pursuing a vision.

The visual works will be accompanied by the artist's observations on differences and similarities between left-hand/right-hand use as well as some surprising incidental abilities.

The exhibition is also a tribute to beauty and human connections – to all the people who have lent their face to this project by allowing me to capture their unique features and character, and not least to the Espresso Library for taking a gamble with this unusual and organic enterprise.

All portraits will be for sale. A gallery of all faces can be viewed via the social media links on www.manuelahubner.com.

Lacuna- New Art Exhibition Opening

We are delighted to invite you to a very special Private View of a new exhibition at Espresso Library. It's a colaborative show featuring works by three exceptional artists, who recently graduated from their MA courses at Anglia Ruskin University; Julie Sleaford, Chris Brown and Eleanor Breeze. First time in the history of Espresso Library's exhibitions, we present you with several different media; painting, photography and sculpture. We're looking forward to seeing you at the opening, meeting the artists and enjoying this extraordinary show!

______

The notion of absence is the thread that binds the work of the three artists in this exhibition, who graduated in September from the MA Fine Art and MA Photography courses at Anglia Ruskin University. Through the media of painting, photography and sculpture each in their own way engage with the flaws in representation as a conduit to knowledge. Missing information creates gateways for the imagination, allowing the viewer to create new narratives and contemplate the unknowable.

Scottish Hydro: New Exhibition Opening

 On Saturday night Espresso Library will host a New Art Show opening and it is a rather spectacular one - "Scottish Hydro" by Toby Smith. This "Renewables Project" is a series of stunning ultra HD photographs and also moving images, making this exhibition and the launch hard to miss. Join us for a chance to hear Toby talk about it over a glass of prosecco!

"Toby Smith worked closely with the communication and operations teams to research and safely access appropriate sites for the project based on aesthetic, scientific, cultural and historical significance. The project was conducted in the harsh winter of 2010 with Smith living and working from his converted 4x4 expedition vehicle. Much of the work is shot on Large Format Film with night exposures lasting many hours."
