Humanity has a long history of creating extraordinary tales from ordinary things.
Featuring skeletal sculptures by autistic artist, Sonja Howard, Impossible Things is a celebration of the infinite possibilities of evolution, imagination, and the eternal beauty of the natural world.
The sculptures in this exhibition are created by combining the remains of different species, similar to the "mermaids" of humbugs past, and the dinosaurs-made-dragons that have lead to countless legends all over the world.
All pieces in this exhibition have been ethically and legally sourced and treated with the utmost respect - no animals were harmed for the purpose of these artworks.
Details on the origins of each piece will be available in the exhibition. Artworks will be available for purchase at the exhibition. Prints, cards, and jewellery will also be available.
Daily talks at 12pm and 6pm about the work.
Accessibility: - Wheelchair accessible (inc. bathrooms) - Some artwork can be experienced via touch.
