Just For Fun - The Peter Hodgson Retrospective

We have brought together a collective of artists to help present and celebrate Lake District artist and maker Peter Hodgson and his lifetime of creative endeavour. Peter's work has influenced and been appreciated by so many of our visiting artists that it is about time we made a fuss of the man.

The artists are Endless Supply, Maria Benjamin, Graham Taylor, juneau/projects, Joe Hartley, Tom Philipson, Karen Guthrie and Laure Provoust.

The exhibition opens in Coniston at the Institute from 27th October and runs for 3 weeks before touring to Castlefield Gallery in Manchester, MIMA Middlesborough and further venues down south to be announced.

Nice Publication About Nice Things On Nice Paper

After Ford 151 is a hilarious romp through the Lawson Park design collection - originally published to accompany the exhibition of the same title it looks at the motivation and politics behind making, design and design movements. Lavishly illustrated with drawings by Jina Lee, accompanied by a preposterous text by Adam Sutherland. Ideal toilet book for the design interested at the startling price of £5 buy it here.
