About The Event

'An inspiring and uplifting speaker’ - Mary will talk to us about her background, the research and journey of her creative process. She is best known for her large-scale conceptual light works and installations, particularly the iconic ‘New Dawn’ 2016 sculpture in the Houses of Parliament, which celebrates the centenary of the Suffrage movement. It is the first permanent piece of contemporary abstract art in the Palace of Westminster. She has created light and sound works for the London 2012 Olympics, Royal Holloway University, Salisbury Cathedral and ‘Harvest’ a huge site – specific installation at Box Hill, Surrey in collaboration with Surrey Hills Arts, highlighting the plight of farmers facing climate change. She has held a number of artistic residencies, including for Parliament, the British Council, Crisis, RHS Wisley and Watts Gallery, where she led an art group for women prisoners at HMP Send. Talk is free for members, £5 for non-members.
