New exhibition 'Altered' at Bury Sculpture Centre
  • Moss Street
    Lancs BL9 0DR
A major solo exhibition and catalogue by British sculptor and disability rights activist Tony Heaton OBE is coming to Bury Sculpture Centre.

Opening on 5 March, Altered includes early work from the National Disability Arts Collection and Archive – which he initiated - to more recent work including direct stone carving.

Tony says: “I am concerned with my own existence and my interaction with both the material and non-material world. In my interactions, I am almost always reminded that I am perceived as a disabled person, and much of my work explores my personal analysis of these everyday interactions. As the artist Georg Baselitz said, “you cannot escape your history and the trauma of your experience ...What are the echoes that follow you...”?’

The exhibition opens at 2pm on Saturday 5 March, when visitors are invited to meet the artist and talk about his work.
