The Ropewalk – Now and Then Exhibition

Spurn Point provides the inspiration for a body of work by husband and wife team Madeline
and Martin Pick. The couple have worked on the project over the past few years exploring
the evocative mystery of Spurn and witnessing dramatic changes at the sand spit as time
and tide continue to erode and reshape its landscape.
Madeline, working primarily with paint and mixed media on canvas, has approached
the subject by working and building layers of texture and meaning into her pieces. “You
respond at many levels to Spurn. It arouses emotions as you consider the lives lived and the
events witnessed and it stimulates memories as you enter the time capsules represented by
the prefab buildings and consider the paths of your own life.”
Photographer Martin sees Spurn Point as a unique and fascinating landscape. “We are both
impressed by its remote beauty and ability to stir memories, bringing them to the surface.
We have tried to represent and record our response to place and the interaction of successive
generations of people with it.”

Hull City of Culture – The Ferens – Barton Civic Society

As part of our continuing celebration of Hull City of Culture 2017, Kirsten Simister tells the story of the city’s Ferens Art Gallery from her perspective as Curator. The Art Gallery opened in 1927, founded by Thomas Ferens, who was MP for Hull East for thirteen years. The permanent collection of paintings and sculpture spans artistic periods from medieval times to the present day. The newly refurbished Ferens will host the 2017 Turner Prize, one of the biggest events in British art, as part of UK City of Culture, and there is a major new exhibition unveiling for the first time Pietro Lorenzetti’s stunning panel painting, Christ between Saints Paul and Peter (c.1320), following its recent acquisition and conservation.

The talk takes place at the Joseph Wright Halls, Queen Street at 7.30pm. For up to date information visit: www.bartoncivicsociety.co.uk
