North Member Programme

Join us for the chance to hear Leo Fitzmaurice talk about his work in the context of his latest exhibition, Blank Stir, with fellow artist Paul Rooney at the Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool.

Fitzmaurice, winner of The Northern Art Prize 2011, makes work that looks afresh and finds new potential in familiar things. His new installation for Blank Stir makes use of various humble tapes used for packing, sealing and masking, to upset the classical Edwardian symmetries of the gallery.

This event is part of a series of events programmed by the Contemporary Art Society in the North West. Membership costs £50 per year / £25 for students.

If you are not yet a member and would like to join, or to receive further information about the organisation and its activities, please contact Mark Doyle at or call 07891 880 498.
