Exhibition Two – Lee Harrison, photography
The Fiddlers Ferry is a major art projects of two Artists (Lee Harrison and Shaun Smyth) and painters TUBES Gallery art curator and consultant Denis Taylor.
The project was started over three years ago. The ambition of the project is to record the changing environment of the North West England. Fiddlers Ferry is part two of four parts, of this art project that has run from 2015 through to 2025.
The photographer, Lee Harrison, was aware of the work that Shaun Smyth had began with the Mersey Gateway Bridge Project that TUBES was also advisory and consultant to (2015-2018). The project was completed towards the end of 2018 and exhibited at the Brindley Theatre Gallery. Lee Harrison, joined the creative team as photographer to add another dimension to the second part of the Fiddler Ferry Art Project. Fiddlers Ferry Power Station was to close in March 2021. Shaun, Lee and Denis (who had been involved since 2018 as the editor for painters TUBES®) worked closely to bring the first and the second part of the project to reality.
Fiddlers Ferry current work is now shown by painter TUBES® in the VR gallery in two sections with both monotone and colour, drawings and photography. The selected work is curated over in two galleries, one for Shaun and one for Lee and over four rooms.
