Abstract Edge Exhibition

Conversation between the generations exhibition.

Come to the Discovery Centre and be inspired by an exhibition of powerful works by Abstract Edge local artists and a new film made by students at Hereford College of Art (with music by local composer David Gaukroger).

The exhibition and the film arise from an innovative partnership involving the Discovery Centre, Abstract Edge, Hereford College of Arts, Rural Media, and the Millichope Foundation. They have been curated and organised by local artist Jane Harding FRSA and inspired by David Powley’s poem on climate change, Yesterday.

The short film will be shown for free in the Discovery Centre’s cinema every few minutes every day between 4 and 5 pm May 2-31. 

The exhibition will be on display every day from 10 to 5 in the same period.
