CHROMATOPIA

Congratulations to our wonderful sponsor LANGRIDGE ARTIST COLOURS on their new website and upcoming exhibition CHROMATOPIA – a history of colour.

Welcome to Chromatopia, an exhibition on the history of colour.
Spanning thousands of of years, travel through the story of pigments and their incredible journeys from across the globe.
Tales of dragons & beetles, alchemy & poisons, slaves & pirates, from the ancient world to the present come alive in this exhibition on colour’s creation.
This voyage of discovery features pigments made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, bodily waste, crushed insects and predatory sea snails. Colours dug simply from the ground beneath us, others so expensive that only kings and popes could afford them.
Within the exhibition, see the living process of historical colour manufacture in action.
Also featured is the new world of strange modern colours that only reveal themselves when touched, are invisible in sunlight or shine in the dark.
Opening 6:30pm on the 31st of May and on display from the 1st to the 18th of June 2017.
