Chill out to this vision of Antarctica

Until January 26, Mon, Fri -amp; Sat 10am-5pm, Tues -amp; Thurs 10am-9pm

This open submission and invitation exhibition includes the work of 14 local or international artists.

Planned to coincide with the exploration of Lake Ellsworth in Antarctica the work explores the twin themes of scientific exploration and the physical landscape of Antarctica.

The images cover many aspects of the subject from the barrenness of its surface to the landscape of the sub-glacial underworld.

Some artists focus on the practicalities of scientific endeavour while others address the extreme conditions of life there and still others reflect on the human condition when faced with loneliness and thoughts of mortality.

One artist, Jana Winderen, weaves together sound recordings taken beneath the ice and reveals a little of the complexity and strangeness of that hidden world.

In an entirely different approach altogether, Damien Flood has created 'fantastical landscapes' which truly reveal his curiosity about exploration while Ruth le Gear, who recently completed a residency in the Arctic, is attracted by the scientific methods of investigating non-physical phenomena.

A very interesting exhibition with some beautiful imagery and that lovers of art should really see.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Responsibilities involving insurance, inheritances and taxes will command your attention. Don't put these matters off a moment longer. You may be busy with work and family, but these duties will never let up. If you continue to spend all of your energy on these things, you'll miss a golden opportunity. Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
