Cornerstone Arts Centre unveils a summer of self-discovery and cultural revelations

Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot is thrilled to unveil their upcoming summer season exhibitions.

From May to August, members of the public can immerse themselves in a tapestry of artistic expressions, delving into themes of self-discovery, social commentary, and community heritage.

Launching the new season displays is Eden Silver-Myer, whose exhibition ‘Befriending My Brain’ will be featured as part of Oxfordshire Artweeks throughout May.

Through a vibrant display of colours and textures, Eden invites viewers to delve into the depths of neurodiversity and personal acceptance. Each piece offers an intuitive exploration of the artist’s mind, providing a glimpse into the chaos and beauty of self-expression. Eden is also hosting free drop-in events in May ideal for children and adults seeking to unleash their creativity.

Another exhibition not to be missed is ‘Shouting Quietly’ by Clive Wright, featuring over 500 captivating paintings. From the 5 June to 27 July, Wright presents a curated selection that delves into the complexities of human existence, exploring everyday encounters and global phenomena. Each canvas resonates with layers of meaning, inviting viewers to decipher the hidden narratives beneath the surface.

‘Didcot Dairy Story’, curated by Dr Leah Hewerdine and Ruby Livesey, is at Cornerstone from 31 July to 31 August and is a must-see for anyone interested in Didcot’s history. This exhibition showcases the legacy of the iconic Didcot Dairy through an engaging display of artefacts, photographs, and cherished memories.

Visitors can soak up the nostalgia while supporting Sobel House Hospice and other local causes as part of this exhibition.

From intimate reflections to thought-provoking narratives, each exhibition promises to inspire, enlighten, and enrich the summer season at Cornerstone.

The gallery area is free for all visitors to view at the centre during its opening hours.

Cllr Maggie Filipova-Rivers Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing at South Oxfordshire District Council said: “I love that we can display these exhibitions for free to the public and they can experience such a wide range of art and artists at Cornerstone.

“I’d encourage anyone coming along to Cornerstone whether it’s to see a show or to enjoy some refreshments at Café Nourish to pop into the gallery and view the art on display this summer.”
