Welcome to the Emporium

Paula & Jane's Emporium of Curious Objects

Preview 4th October 7:00 - 9:00pm.
In their installation Paula and Jane's Emporium of Curious Objects artists Jane Fairhurst and Paula Fenwick celebrate the seemingly arbitrary nature of the collections of objects found in cabinets of curiousities of the eras of the Renaissance and Enlightenment.
Both avid collectors of stuff, Fenwick and Fairhurst want to share something
of their collections and their artwork.

Like a museum of curiosities or an old fashioned shop, their Emporium of Curious Objects will be a sourse of wonderment for all ages; a mix of the fascinating and the curious, the strange and the uncanncy, the real and the imagined, the freaky and the downright funny.
Jane Fairhurst and Paula Fenwick, having found common ground in their fascination for collecting, have joined forces to create a 'cabinet of curiousities for the 21st Century', which like the cabinets of old include the genuine alongside the illusionary.

As curators of the exhibition Fairhurst and Fenwick have invited artists including;
  • Kat Button
  • Stephen Cunliffe
  • Carys Ann Hughes
  • Vikki Hughes and Tabitha Kyoto Moses
  • Steven Heaton
  • Anna F.C. Smith and Neil Warburton
to show work alongside their installation at the
Cross Street Gallery in Standish.

Exhibition opens Mondays,
Wednesdays and Saturdays from
12:00 - 4:00pm or by appointment.
