After a 10 day residency with us at Art Gene, Sophie and Di have left Art Gene – leaving artworks installed in our Main Gallery, which will become an important part of our next gallery exhibition (sign up for our newsletter below to keep informed!).

In addition, Di and Sophie have now permanent Residency Artist pages on our website, where you can see images of the artwork they produced. You can also hear from them about what caught their interest in both the area of Barrow-in-Furness and Art Gene’s own research and project work – and how that then evolved into some different artworks. There’s a couple of short films clips to watch too.
