29th June – 17th July

In line with Scottish Government guidelines, Upright Gallery will reopen its doors to the public, with hand sanitiser provided and all post-lockdown precautions observed; the exhibition that was showing at the time of closure due to the pandemic, Jenny Pope’s Evoking Change will have an additional three-week run until 17th July. 

In Evoking Change, Jenny combines old objects, with layers of meaning and past uses, as a metaphor for the layers of past experiences and influences that have shaped us as people. With a background as a graduate of ceramics and sculpture, Jenny practises as an artist from her WASPS Studios base in Edinburgh and is a practitioner in mental wellbeing work and life coaching. Experimentation with the limits and possibilities of materials such as porcelain, found objects, felt, ink and paper, she uses the analogy of weathering of objects to suggest the uncertainty and changes we all face as human beings.
