The EICH Gallery in George Street plays host to two new exhibitions

from today (Friday 9th March).


Professor Des Crawley, director of the Centre for Digital Media at the University of Western Sydney, Australia, will be at a private view this evening (6pm until 8pm) of his photographic exhibition in the Cafe Gallery at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.


Prof Crawley, who is currently on a two-month exchange at the university, was Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Western Sydney and  Foundation President of the Photo Imagine Educators’ Association of Australasia.


‘Epiphanies’ forms part of the academic exchange programme and is a representative exhibition comprising work selected from various exhibitions staged by Prof Crawley over the last decade.


“The images are intended to celebrate beauty derived from place, people, prose and poetry,” commented Kathie Jenkins, curator of the EICH (European Illustration Collection Hull) Gallery.


The work includes some recent exploration of image and text which are preliminary pieces for a major forthcoming exhibition scheduled in Sydney in March 2002.


Meanwhile in the main gallery on George Street Prof Martyn Chalk, Phil Evans and Richard Hollinshead take a fresh look at ‘All Things Considered’, an introduction into sculptural thinking.


Both exhibitions will be on show until 13th April 2001. Entry is free and the gallery is open from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday.
