Pieces of Self: The feelings of fibromyalgia – Karly Michelle Whalley
(April 16 – 29)
From April 16 we warmly welcome Karly Michelle Whalley with Pieces of Self: The feelings of fibromyalgia. Karly writes of the exhibition:
“10 years ago last year I probably began to show symptoms if I’d known what to look for.
10 years ago just after Easter I knew something was seriously wrong.
10 years ago this coming December I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
Living with fibromyalgia, as with any chronic illness, can be very solitary as it’s difficult to communicate how comprehensively it affects your life and the lives of those close to you. This exhibition has been an opportunity for me, not to try and tell you exactly what it’s been like but rather to share some of the feelings with you – both the joys and the sorrows.”
As part of this exhibition, you are invited to participate in a series of workshops entitled The Moments of Rest, details and bookings for which may be found at http://www.karlymichelle.com
Opening: Thursday 16 April 7pm
Devonshire Tea/Meet the Artist: Sunday 26 April 4:30pm
We do hope you can join us for this insightful exhibition.
