We are delighted that tickets are now on-sale for three out of the five venues we will be visiting on our upcoming tour of The Resonance of Seclusion. Tickets for Leeds and ALRA will be on-sale soon.
In the year 2000 artist Joash Woodrow left his home in Leeds for the final time to move to a new life in sheltered housing in North Manchester. Having lived as a recluse for almost 40 years few people could believe what was discovered when the contents of the house were finally revealed. Despite his apparent seclusion Joash had painted and drawn throughout his life filling, the rooms of the normal suburban semi with over 700 paintings, 3000 drawings and hundreds and hundred of books.
Join Small Things to discover an extraordinary story inspired by one man’s unstoppable drive to create and the equally unstoppable support of his family that made his artistic life a reality.
A story of amazing discoveries, journeys that last over the years and brothers quietly growing old together. And that questions what makes great art and what makes a great artist.
