Curious Alchemy – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Curious Alchemy. Opening on at 7pm BST on 9th October and running until 30th October, the exhibition features over 40 incredible international artists and consists of close to 50 fabulous artworks.

Curious: [adjective] Strange and unusual.

Alchemy: [noun] A seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

The mysterious and magical act of artistic creation continues to intrigue through its process of taking the ordinary and transforming it into the extraordinary. For centuries, humanity has explored the act of transmuting thoughts and emotions into tangible artefacts that question, arouse, endear, and surprise, to name only a few verbs we associate with our deeply rewarding interactions with art.

Here at WOW x WOW, we pride ourselves on celebrating creations that traverse the entire gamut of human emotions, ranging from the light and joyous through to the dark and tortured. However, one thing remains constant; all the artists involved participate in the development of their own uniquely rich and ‘Curious Alchemy’.
