Art Exhibition: Jellytastic – Trudi Lloyd Williams ** 15-20 Oct 2014 ** ONCA, Brighton

 

Artist, Trudi Lloyd Williams, has spent hundreds of hours sculpting jellyfish out of recycled plastic bottles. The resulting pieces are beautiful and delicate, just like the actual jellyfish which visit our shores each summer.

This exhibition highlights the wonderful marine life found in our seas and is a culmination of many months of work engaging people with a Jellytastic world.

The exhibition also highlights the incredible quantity of plastic bottles we use in our daily lives, so many of which we could quite easily do without. The masses of plastic bottles which are used in this exhibition were collected by school children and the public over last summer. The public have also been contributing to the project by reporting jellyfish sightings and making their own jellyfish sculptures.

Trudi will be running jellyfish sculpture workshops at ONCA on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October. Drop in anytime between 12noon and 3pm to have a go at making your own Jellytastic art.

Come to the exhibition to find out more about the jellyfish living in our seas and what we can do to reduce our plastic consumption. Visit the project website to see what jellyfish sightings have been recorded by people this year: www.makingwavesproject.org.uk/jellytastic

Opening Hours – The Jellytastic exhibition will be open Wednesday 15th through to Monday 20th October.

12noon – 7pm on weekdays and 11am – 6pm at the weekend.

Jellytastic is a joint project between artist, Trudi Lloyd Williams, Sussex Wildlife Trust and Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the National Aquarium Ltd, and the New Forest National Park Authority.
