March Exhibition 2009 - HUMOUR AND THE SURREAL
HUMOUR AND THE SURREAL
We hope that this exhibition proves to be the antidote to a long and dreary winter. Each of these makers has a special way of looking at and representing the world. Words such as surreal, humour and whimsy come to mind - anything but dull - to be taken seriously, but certainly not without a smile and maybe a few questions.

HUMOUR is described as the tendency of particular cognitive experience to provoke laughter and provide amusement. Many theories exist about what humour is and what social function it serves but people of most ages and cultures respond to humour.
Words such as SURREAL - bizarre or dreamlike, humour and whimsy come to mind – anything but dull. To be taken seriously but certainly not without a smile and maybe a few questions.
