Join us on a visit to Chapter Arts Centre, the vibrant creative space at the heart of the community, currently home to Garth Evans’s latest sculptural exhibition.
As I walk through the doors of Chapter Arts Centre, I’m greeted with the weekday afternoon hustle and bustle of Canton’s creative and artistic hub. The café, directly in front of me as I walk in, is full of a diverse range of visitors, chatting and enjoying a tea and bite to eat in the calming, minimalistic, white space.
I turn left to enter the current art exhibition: British artist Garth Evans’s ‘But, Hands Have Eyes’. This striking sculptural display is the favourite of gallery invigilator, Jemma Roper.
“When you walk in, it visually affects you straight away,” she says of Evans’s art. An artist herself, Jemma finds working at Chapter inspiring for her own multimedia artistic pursuits, which are currently focused on painting.
Housing a cinema, theatre, art gallery and café, Chapter is a dynamic social and cultural centre which welcomes nearly 800,000 visitors per year.
