Today, ROSL ARTS are busy installing the latest exhibition to grace the walls of the clubhouse, First Look, which will be officially unveiled next week.
The exhibition introduces the work of six artists whose plans to display recent work has been “waiting for you to return”. Presenting a selection of photography, printmaking, textiles and ceramics by Diane Bresson, Ines Fernandez de Cordova, Mara Gajic, Eden Hawkins, Ruth O’Reilly and Felicity Royce, First Look can be seen as an opportunity to reimagine our freshly reopened surroundings. This idea grew from a short paragraph new ROSL Visual Arts Coordinator Robin Footitt wrote about changing how we perceive things at a glance in light of the past 18 months:
“So many relationships and personal stories which we have formed from spontaneous contact throughout our lives had to be paused over the past year. First sight turned into overfamiliarity with our close environment followed by a desire to be outside and experience living all over again. As doors reopen and we pass through, perhaps each new experience will resonate longer than an instant and love at first sight will span more than a glance.”

The exhibition will be up from next week until September, make sure to stop by and take a look on your next visit to the clubhouse.
