‘Curious Carnival’

3 November 2023 @ 10:00 am - 28 November 2023 @ 4:00 pm

Ceramics artist Anna Donovan uses clay to tell stories through figurative sculptures.

This curious exhibition will feature ceramic and mixed media sculptures playing with imagery inspired by a variety of mythological creatures combined with familiar carnival and circus tropes. Characters will have evolved from clowns, mermen, acrobats, strong men, and bearded ladies, to create a side show of curiosities!

‘Curious Carnival’ is the result of Donovan’s imagination, playing with, and nourished by childhood memories of funfairs, fairy tales, and legends.
