Late autumn may not be the most energising of seasons when you look out of the window but there is plenty of new art to see and feel inspired by! Grab your brolly and pop into a gallery – here are our highlights.
Dreamy scenes meet painterly experimentation at the Hepworth Wakefield’s exhibition Andrew Cranston: What made you stop here?. Back in Manchester A Fine Toothed Comb at HOME explores the literal and metaphorical hidden depths of the city of Manchester and its residents.
In Liverpool, Tim Spooner: A New Kind of Animal at the Bluecoat brings much needed humour to the gallery walls and floors, with unique characters and animatronic creatures. Baltic’s Stepping Softly on the Earth addresses the currently prevalent topics of Indigenous wisdom and inter-species communication by gathering the work of non-Western artists in a varied, thought-provoking show.
Lastly, Rosemarie Castoro: Carving Space at Mostyn is a thorough look at the work of a feminist artist whose practice spanned Minimalist and Conceptual art, dance and much more. The display includes a gallery exhibit as well as an outdoor element with an installation on the beach.
