Casting Shadows – Group Exhibition


Gallery Open Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 5pm (Closed Monday/Tuesday)
Meet the Artists Reception: Saturday, March 2nd, 1-3pm

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
– Robert Louis Stevenson

And now for a little science: shadows need two things to form, Light, and an Object that does not allow light to pass through. Light, which can only travel in a straight line, will then go sideways and, voilà, a shadow is formed.

Casting Shadows, an open-call show, is a brand-new theme for Coast Collective Gallery. Twenty-seven artists have submitted works that shine a light upon shadows – paintings, photographs, sculptures, textiles, mixed media, and even a lamp made from upcycled automotive parts.

C’mon – no need to be afraid of your own shadow.
