The Gravy Train and Roads to Recovery Exhibition

The Gravy Train and Roads to Recovery Exhibition A multi-media Outsider artist exhibition of craft work, fabric design, painting and installation by artists from the Margarete Centre and Outsider artist Kate Bradbury

The exhibition is linked to a major retrospective of assemblages by KATE BRADBURY who continues to build a recognizable and visionary achievement unique within current UK outsider art. A self taught artist from Birmingham influenced by travel to countries including Mexico, the artist collects items which are then transformed into meticulous creations with obsessively structured repeated patterns. ...After a celebrated display in DARE TO WEAR at the St. Pancras Crypt Gallery in 2012, Kate recreates new perspectives on earlier installations involving passengers made of suitcases and lampshades, dislocated shoes and a large scale train all moving together on journeys of their own. Mirrors complete a Cocteau-like feeling of moving from one world into another. The Conference Centre is pleased to present an exhibition of artwork from Service Users at the Margarete Centre. While treatment for substance misuse historically focused on harm reduction and substitute prescribing, other recovery methods emphasise equality, opportunity and equal access to society. “The artwork in this exhibition has been made by service users who, of their own volition, and without necessarily involving training or teaching, replace problematic substance use with creativity. This exhibition showcases outsider art work covering a range of years and artists reflecting a broad spectrum of style and creativity. This work combined with the visionary creativity of Kate Bradbury, makes for a fascinating multi-layered experience”. Quote from The Arts Project.
