The Colour Purple
8th Apr - 6th May 2017 Preview Saturday Apr 8th, from 4-6pm.
"The Colour Purple" exhibition takes its title from the American novel by Alice Walker, later adapted into a film. Set in rural Georgia, the story focuses on the life of African-American women in the South in the 1930s, addressing numerous issues, including their exceedingly low position in American social culture.
A line in the book and film exchanged between the two main characters reads, "I think it pisses God off if you walk by the colour purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it,"
The colour purple also has a long association with royalty, nobility, power, success and ambition.
The Colour Purple is a curated exhibition with artists including Joyce Gunn Cairns MBE, Jenny Matthews, Annette Edgar, Drummond Mayo, Megan Chapman and Jackie Gardiner contributing to what will be a beautiful exhibition.
