At the Jam Factory - a 3D visual feast

Susie Duggin's Autumn collection is a prelude of what's to come as you enter the gallery.
Inside, on the right, in Gallery 2, a series of delicate objects depict the global consumer culture in Julie Bartholomew's "Global Markings" exhibition. I left with the feeling that I'd rather be there than in a shopping center.
Gallery 1 is a collection of colourful weird, playful, sometimes grotesque objects. "Figuration", the work of Stephen Bird, Michael Doolan, Jenny Orchard and Mark Thompson is like a festival.
The Jam Factory is such an intimate place, where, in spite of the cameras placed everywhere, one feels at home.
It was a real pleasure to visit the current shows that run until the 21st of June.
If you haven't already, get out there! Treat yourself! It's free!
