New Exhibitions

Two new exhibitions open at The Atkinson this weekend.

Courage & Devotion

26 June 2021 – 12 March 2022
This exhibition remembers the lives of the Polish Airmen based at RAF Woodvale, the iconic Spitfire and some of the stories associated with the area during World War 2. Along with the stories of the airmen and objects to help illustrate the story we have commissioned a replica scale model of a Spitfire Vb AB273 from paper artist sculpture Suhail Shaikh.

Paul Kenny: Seaworks

26 June – 23 October 2021
Working without a camera, Paul Kenny creates abstract compositions on small glass plates with objects found on beaches and crystallised sea water. Each glass plate is scanned to produce large-scale photographs and lightboxes rich with opalescent colours, which take on the form of imagined landscapes.
