Michele Morrod: Eclectic Mix

16 – 21 Aug 2022 // 10.00 – 17.00 // Free

“Some artists have a distinctive style or subject matter. I have a less defined approach (some would say random!) but if something attracts me, visually or intellectually, I use it as the starting point for a design.”

This open and exciting approach to art making has allowed Michele to bring a body of work which will have visitors asking whether this “eclectic mix” has really all been made by just one artist.
