One of our own members has a great Exhibition

Yet another great Exhibition to visit in the area, this time by one of our own members – Francesca Dent.Untitled-1Francesca says that she produced ‘In Memoriam’, a mixed media exhibition combining photography and poetry.

In Memoriam focuses on the belongings of a handful of men who fought for King and Country during World War One. I took artefacts from the Durham Light Infantry Museum as well as photographs and medals belonging to my Great Grandfather, a Stoker 1st Class in the Royal Navy and combined them with famous war poems to make people think about those that gave their lives for us.

Artefacts are reproduced with the permission of the Trustees of the former Durham Light Infantry and the DLI Museum.

In Memoriam can be seen in the Tyneside Coffee Rooms until March 2015
