A question of balance requires you to assess the perception of your surroundings, decide where you want to go, examine the consequences, and then move on. A Question of Balance is also the title of an exhibition at the Qube Gallery in Oswestry. On display will be more than 50 exhibits of traditional and contemporary art, textile, film, sculpture and clever things which can be seen from 7th February until 9th March 2020.
Exhibition curator, Ruby Reseigh, gained the opportunity to use the whole gallery display area in recognition of winning the Open Art People’s Choice Prize 2019. This award was decided by vote from all visitors to the gallery over two months in the late summer of last year.
The theme of that competition was inclusion – a particular passion of Ruby’s. “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.” Her piece was entitled ‘Let’s Dance’.
Appropriately, Ruby has continued the theme of inclusion by tapping into her creative community and inviting a wide range of contributors with varying art experience, different genres and diverse life backgrounds to join in and respond to ‘A Question of Balance’. Some are well known as professional artists, others have never exhibited before. In tune with global concerns, many artists have been inspired by environmental issues.
In collaboration with fellow artists and co-curators Rob Woods and Annie Day, Ruby has sourced and presented an exciting, eclectic and intriguing collaboration of artistic responses to ‘A Question of Balance’.
