Ideal States And Sacred Places

Sat 4 November - Sun 26 November


Prepare to be mesmerised by the stunning beauty and boundless creativity captured within the artwork and book “Ideal States and Sacred Places”. The eagerly anticipated exhibition and book, featuring an exquisite collection of artwork from the artist Pennie Steel, is poised to become a visual masterpiece that will leave art enthusiasts, collectors, and connoisseurs in awe

“Ideal States and Sacred Places” is a celebration of an imagined state, with paintings and sculptures that draw you into the world of architecture and imagination. The accompanying book invites readers to immerse themselves, as each turn of the page unveils breathtaking artwork that transcends boundaries and ignites the imagination.

Attendees will have the opportunity to view these imagined cities on both canvas and in sculptural form which we hope will engage in conversations with the artist. Pennie’s book of the same name will showcase all of the art pieces featured. Attendees will have the opportunity to appreciate the artwork up close, witnessing the intricate details and the artists’ skillful techniques. In addition, throughout the month of November, there will be artist talks and panel discussions, providing insights into the creative processes, inspirations, and stories behind the featured works. These interactive sessions will foster a deeper appreciation for the artworks and facilitate meaningful connections between artists and art lovers.
