Painting by Grace Currie

Former student Grace Currie is hosting her own art exhibition titled 'Hiding' at the Gateway Gallery in Shrewsbury.

In 2010, aged 17, Grace was involved in a serious traffic accident, causing a severe brain injury and leaving her with interrelating disabilities and a neurodivergent view of the world.

Her work uses these challenges to confront viewers and reflects her resistance to reductive labels such as 'disabled'. The exhibition will include portraiture, mixed-media, ceramics and 3D work from past performance pieces.

If you would like to view the exhibition, it will be running from November 10 to December 21 at the Gateway Gallery (open Monday-Friday 9am-4pm).
