Art should be a tool, not a weapon. Not used for a vehicle to house the abuse of power, but a platform to exert feelings, thoughts, emotions, happiness or anxiety. - Gemma Moore

Gemma Moore from the AMASS arts collective has a new show opening in Leominster in October. The drapes will be pulled open on  Marginalised Represented on October 2nd, the show runs until October 30th at the Old Stable Gallery in Leominster. The show is presented by the Leominster Cultural Consortium. 

The exhibition commemorates Ann Barge, a tireless representative for marginalised groups and will feature work from Gemma’s 2022 show Our Distraught System and her 2021-22 series of paintings, Drawn In Time. 

While Gemma’s work embraces the polemical, the exhibition will also showcase a wistful side of her painting. The exhibition may represent the final opportunity in 2023 to acquire pieces of Gemma’s work which generally sell out very quickly.

One of the things we love about Gemma is her ambition to bring her challenging artworks to locales way beyond the art beltway. Her work has featured in locations as disparate as the Tate Gallery and the Ludlow Town Hall, or a boarded up shop front in Walsall.

This past summer saw her work on view as part of the AMASS Collective, Aftermath show in Wolverhampton. Gemma is an intrinsic part of this vibrant young art group, an alliance of MA graduates from Birmingham City Universities fine arts program.

Gemma says, “Art should be a tool, not a weapon. Not used for a vehicle to house the abuse of power, but a platform to exert feelings, thoughts, emotions, happiness or anxiety.”

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
