The Jolly (Good) Show brings together eight artists who take a playful approach to making artworks. With a nod to the ‘make-do’ culture and village vernacular that has arisen in our current economic and ecological climate, many of the works shown are assembled using collage or sculptural techniques. Witty and occasionally sinister the works look at the quirks of human behaviour; obsessive collecting, ritual, story telling and folklore.
