Creatures from the feral state exhibition @ Spout Coffee Shop.


An exhibition of new paintings by local artist Laurel Gallagher will be on display in the Spout coffee shop, Leek from 24th October.

Enter a world of lost children, spirit animals and feral Goddesses where you are not only a viewer but the storyteller; weaving the characters together to create your own narrative.
Artist Laurel Gallagher’s paintings form part of an artistic process exploring the Feral in human nature that she describes as “our inner creativity which works on subconscious instinct and cannot be tamed”
