Exhibition: ‘Here Just Awhile”

Sun 5 May - Sun 26 May

A retrospective of the works of Geoffrey Payne. This includes ceramics, paintings, lino prints, screen prints, drawings, at least one chair and felted works.

There will be some images from a draft book of his work with short essays by artist friends about his life and practice. There will be an opportunity for you to order a copy.

While the exhibition works won’t be for sale at this time, there will be some of his screen prints on tea towels for sale. Please bring cash.

Celebrate the incredible breath of work, the intelligence and humour behind Mr Cactus and the love he had with the land around us. As he often said ‘Look at where we live!”.
