Layered Meanings exhibition
Artspace Loughborough, 17 Nov – 8 Dec
The theme “Layered Meanings” has been interpreted in various interesting and thought provoking ways by the 19 artists taking part. Some have chosen to look at the theme in terms of layering of the painted surface, others have used words and phrases as a starting point to develop different interpretations through visual form. Painting the changing view from windows and using a historical figure re-imagined as a present day eco-warrior are other themes explored by individuals; another has used imagery from childhood. Some have used the natural world as their visual stimulus for developing imagery based on the earth and nature. The exhibits range from paintings and mixed media to photography, collage, 3D work and prints. There are also ideas and creative responses based on the recent lockdown situation to express thoughts and feelings about the world at large; the pandemic and how it affects us all.
The exhibition can be viewed during these opening hours:
Mondays and Fridays 9am – 5pm
Wednesdays and Saturdays 9am -1pm
Tuesdays and Thursdays 12 midday – 5pm
Due to Covid-19 these times may change. They are correct at the time of going press but please check the Library website for the latest information.

Thoughts Thinking Thoughts
Radar Loughborough (online), from 18 November
An online talk and discussion with Theo Reeves-Evison, exploring how artists have engaged with the shift towards economic thinking in ecology. In 1953 Eugene and Howard Odum published Fundamentals of Ecology: one of the first textbooks to elaborate a general theory of ecological interaction. In keeping with the systems thinking popular at the time, the Odums conceptualised ecological processes as energy flows using ideas drawn from cybernetics and electrical engineering.

Fermynwoods Podcast 7 – Geoff Diego Litherland
For the final episode of the first podcast season, host and Assistant Director at Fermynwoods Jessica Harby talks with artist Geoff Diego Litherland about his new album of music. Since 2016, Geoff’s practice developed from painting landscape to cultivating it. He grew a field of flax, harvested and spun the fibres, and then learned to weave his own uniquely textured linen canvases. This year, he turned those weaving patterns into sound loops to produce the basis of music, now available on his album Woven / Ground. Listening to the music, which runs throughout this episode, is listening not only to his paintings, but to the entire journey from cultivated dirt to finished work of art.
