Opening Night – ‘Memory Banquet’ by Carla McRae

Big thanks to everyone who joined us for the opening of Carla McRae’s solo show Memory Banquet.

Friends shared a bevy whilst soaking up Carla’s beautiful, vibrant work. Conversations buzzed of childhood memories and how tasty the meals in Wallace and Gromit looked! The gallery was packed, with bodies spilling out into the back lane to soak up the warm December air.

Carla’s beaut show explored the memorable and delightful meals from the cartoons of her youth through both oil pastel drawings and tactile wooden sculptures. Embedded in her mind through repeated views, for Carla, these humble meals have become more memorable than the narratives surrounding them.

Cheers for joining us for this visual feast!
