‘Personally I Would Never Do That’ is the debut solo exhibition of artist Susie Rose Dalton, winner of the Leith School of Art Wasps Award 2021. Susie’s ceramic-based art practice uses simple and thoughtful ways of working with materials to put form to tender experiences. ‘Personally I Would Never Do That’ showcases new work, taking a playful and sensitive approach to exploring the space between fixed states of being.

Dalton’s award-winning artwork ‘Flare’ will also be on show, comprised of 459 photosensitive porcelain tiles featuring irreversible records of the light in the artist’s living space over lockdown.

Movement workshop led by multi-disciplinary artist Ashanti Harris set in ‘Personally I Would Never Do That’ – Friday 11 March, 3.30-5pm
