Art exhibition with a social conscience

THEY are a sight for sore eyes – and perhaps for a sore head.
Art featuring images of binge-drinking was on display at Art Jericho in Oxford.
It was the first time artists from Magdalen Road Studios in East Oxford exhibited their work at the Jericho gallery.
Among the work shown were ceramics with illustrations of binge-drinking women.
Rose Wallace, from Oxford, said her ceramic work “has a subversive, satirical edge, with social issues relating to binge-drinking, particularly involving young women.”
The exhibition, called A Grand Day Out, ran from September 1 until last Sunday.
Director of Art Jericho, Patricia Baker-Cassidy, said: “It was east meets west, with artists from Magdalen Road Studios bringing their work to us for the first time.”
