About Places of Comfort: Exhibition of Wood Sculptures by Teresa Hunyadi

Preview: Friday 2 August, 6–8pm
Open: Wednesday to Sunday, 12–6pm, free

The works in Places of Comfort are realised through the artist’s response to an arboretum of starting points - from a decaying piece of Beech hundreds of years old, an Oleaster trunk formerly very much loved by beetles and a wind-fallen White Beam found around the corner from the artist’s home, to reclaimed wooden cutting boards from her home country.

Teresa’s interest in wood encompasses everything, from rare finds like bog oak, to construction timber or the odd chair found on the street. Her focus on following the grain in each work allows her to draw out the history of the wood, whilst transforming it into something new.

Visitors are encouraged to discover these stories by touch as much as by sight; touch gives the most direct access to the material and, therefore, the finished work.Access to the exhibition and all events are designed for blind, partially sighted and sighted visitors.

Touch Tours: Monday 5 and Tuesday 13 August, 11am and 1pm, Free.
Designed for blind and partially sighted visitors. Together with experienced guide and artist, Lynn Cowan, Teresa Hunyadi will take you through the exhibition to explore her artworks by touch. Patriothall Gallery is on the ground floor and has step-free access throughout. Friends and dogs welcome. To book a place on one of the tours, please contact Lynn Cowan on 07741 495450 or lynnmoorecowan@gmail.com.

Concert RawGreenRust: Saturday 10 Aug, 6–7pm, Free.
Laptop trio, RawGreenRust, will perform improvised electronic music that responds to the artworks in the space. Building on their long working relationship and musical intimacy, they will draw out another view of Places of Comfort.

In Conversation with Rosita McKenzie: Sunday 18 Aug, 1–2pm, Free.
Join Teresa Hunyadi for an In Conversation discussion with blind artist, Rosita McKenzie. In direct response to the exhibition, Teresa and Rosita will discuss how the tactile experience can support a deeper engagement with form, and support an extended understanding of sculpture, production processes and materials.
