AN art studio will become a spiritual space when it plays host to a new exhibition.

Creative Cohesion in Sunniside is preparing for an exciting six months of diverse programmes.

The series will open with a show by American glass artist Criss Chaney called Sacred Spaces.

Criss, who has exhibited work in the UK, Europe and the US, says she will be focusing on spirituality and the subconscious mind – showcasing pieces that exploit methods of working with both glass and metals.

The artist, originally from Seattle, Washington, said: “It’s great to be exhibiting with Creative Cohesion, an organisation that I’ve been involved with since its birth.

“I’m really looking forward to catching up with old friends, seeing how the charity has grown, and sharing my new work with them.

“In my work, I use caves as a metaphor for the subconscious and spiritual dimensions of human existence.

“Using the archetypal female form and its close associations with caves, this exhibition explores a common and deep-seated intuitive attraction to these forms and the mysteries they present.”

A series of exhibitions and events taking place between November 13 and March 22 next year at Creative Cohesion, in Nile Street, will also feature work byartists Chris Hamilton, Adele Cutter and Hanna Herrera.

Sacred Spaces will run from Friday to Sunday, October 12.

Criss added: “Spaces like Creative Cohesion are crucial. The other artists and people you meet when you get involved in an organisation like this can be the key to your success.”

A preview of Sacred Spaces, will take place on Thursday, from 6pm to 8pm.
