  • Geltsdale Gallery - Contemporary Art Exhibition by Laura M R Harrison

    Geltsdale Gallery is hosting a Contemporary Art Exhibition by Laura M R Harrison, featuring film projection, photography and sound.  The installation runs until Tuesday 23rd June, with public access between 9.00am and 5pm 7 days per week.

    Starting in February of this year, under the cover of darkness, Laura has been a regular visitor to the waters of Tindale Tarn. In her practice Laura prefers to step out of routine, using the solitude of night-time to get a different view of location, to slow down, lose sense of time and to contemplate. 

    'The Lost Seer Seeks a Sage' is the conclusion of Laura's exploratory inquiry into the uncertainty of the future and how, through investigating notions of wisdom, we might approach the unknown. Through film, sound and photography, you are invited to explore Tindale Tarn through myth, magic and mayhem. 

    Laura is currently studying for an MA in Contemporary Fine Art at the University of Cumbria. This exhibition is a precursor to a further exhibition, to be presented in September, which will mark the conclusion of her studies.

    Please note:  this exhibition includes film shown in low light levels that may not be suitable for anyone who suffers from high light sensitivity.
