James Marsh Flights of Fancy

Wed 12th May 2021 - Tue 31st Aug 2021

Haddenham Arts Centre

Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 4pm. FREE entry.

"undoubtedly, the creative collaborations with Talk Talk remain my most enduring to date", says James Marsh about the legendary work he has produced over the years. On the occasion of Talk Talk's 40th aniversary, Hypergallery will present a pop-up exhibition at Haddenham Arts Centre, featuring Marsh's most interesting album and singles covers published in large scale format as exquisite limited edition prints.

James Marsh is a painter, illustrator, designer and author, best known for his striking album covers for new wave band Talk Talk. Marsh's art has been the perfect match to Talk Talk's music ever since his design for their debut album in 1982. It is a stunning catalogue of work, the product of a unique and very special relationship: the band have been devoted to their chosen artist throughout their career; the artist is a genuine, lifelong fan of the music.

In partnership with Hypergallery we present an exhibition of signed, limited edition silkscreens and archival inkjets showcasing the jewels in Marsh's impressive and distinctive portfolio. Still working with the band's legacy, Marsh co-authored the 2012 publication Spirit of Talk Talk. Copies of the book will be available at the exhibition.

Helena Greene: A Retrospective

Thu 10th Jun 2021 - Sun 1st Aug 2021

Helena Greene was an artist that loved the fresh and the new, from her early days studying art in Goldsmiths in London in the 1970s to her final years when she became fascinated by film - her art was constantly evolving. Her work draws on the verdant East Anglian countryside, the streets and gardens of Cambridge, the south coast and stretching to the many corners of the globe that she explored from Pakistan and India, to Mexico and Australia. This is a fitting retrospective of an artist who lived her art and saw art in everything she lived. The Gallery, 1st Floor. June 10th to August 1st 2021, closed Mondays and public holidays. Please wear masks and sign in using the QR Code or leave your details.
