Pathways

Group exhibition for Artwalk Wakefield
November 2021

A rare insight into the inspirations and processes behind the work of four artists, who are all studio holders at The Art House in Wakefield: Helen Riddle, Jim Souper, Helen Thomas, and Tony Wade.
In Pathways the artists identify a common thread that can be drawn through their diverse approaches, which include textiles, photography, drawing, walking and sound.

Xylem and Phloem

A micro-exhibition in the Prosaic Projects Gallery, Bloc Projects Sheffield, 2021

‘Xylem and Phloem’, curated by Sean Williams, featured ‘Yarrow and Nettle on Smyth Street’ by Helen Thomas ; ‘Meadow Saxifrage’ by Barbara Howey ; and ‘Dark Marsh: Winter Tangle’ by Judith Tucker

“three amazing painters who work primarily with images of plants. In so doing, they invite us to consider more carefully the various roles plants play in our lives. Their brushwork reflects the vitality, resilience, and vulnerability of the plants they depict.” Sean Williams
