Shrewsbury Streetscape Project: The First Five Years
16th February – 12th March 2024 Exhibition by James St. Clair Wade

DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival Special Exhibition

In April 2019 local artist and architect, James St. Clair Wade began work on an ambitious survey of the historic streetscape of Shrewsbury in a series of unique architectural views allowing the whole length of each street to be seen simultaneously. Now, nearly five years on, this exhibition presents a selection of the extensive volume of work produced, and highlights the richness and variety of the town’s architecture, building by building, like a library stocked with shelf after shelf of well-loved books. The exhibition will include a short film entitled ‘The Mount in Miniature’ by Andrew Spicer of Fairholme Films, which documents the process of producing a Streetscape drawing, using Darwin’s birthplace as a case study. The exhibition will coincide with the DarwIN Festival Shrewsbury and includes a number of buildings associated with his life.

All welcome to the launch night on Friday 16th February @ 6.30pm.

15th March – 16th April 2024 by Ming de Nasty

Shrewsbury LGBT+ History Festival Special Exhibition

The exhibition is a curated selection of new portraits by Ming de Nasty, photographs collected from participants and accompanying texts drawn from people’s memories during participatory workshops.  Made during 2023, with a group of LGBT+ older residents of Shropshire, the pictures reflect on age, identity, rights, and representation within a community that have lived and experienced radical change.  They serve as prompts to how we must continually consider care, social justice, and the politics of recent history and now.

Commissioned by GRAIN Projects in partnership with SAND, and generously supported by Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
