HORSEBRIDGE EXHIBITION 2023

15/02/2023

The theme for our Spring 2023 exhibition at the Horsebridge Arts Centre is Masquerade and Celebration and the show is a celebration of our members work over the past year.

We all dress up for a party, but is it the real you or are you putting on a disguise? We have explored the themes of wearing a mask, of costume or disguise and of deception. But we also wanted to emphasise the fun of having a party and "letting your hair down".

Here is an article from the Victoria and Albert Museum website - https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/creating-new-europe-1600-1800-galleries/the-making-of-the-masquerade
