We are delighted to announce that Leicester artist Sarah Kirby has brought her work to St Martins House Conference Centre in a permanent exhibition.
A large part of Sarah's work features the buildings in and around Leicester that are part of the fabric of city life. These are a mix of iconic public buildings (such as New Walk Museum and Leicester Cathedral) and those more familiar yet nevertheless architecturally notable (such as Blunts Shoes or the Turkey Café).
Much of Sarah’s work explores how buildings are imbued with meaning as a consequence of repeated use across different generations; how they acquire emotional significance for local inhabitants; and how they become repositories of memory. With so many inspirational buildings in and around Sarah’s city, her work with iconic landmarks is ongoing.
The works on display at St Martins House Conference Centre are all original linocut prints and are available to purchase.
