PAULA REGO & REBECCA SCOTT
Thursday 28 June 2018
We’re delighted to have welcomed our first guests at the opening event for Cross Lane Projects on 28 June, Cross Lane Projects is a new art space in Kendal founded by Cumbria-born artist Rebecca Scott and her partner Mark Woods, a sculptor. The event included a special preview of our inaugural exhibition Female Trouble – Paula Rego & Rebecca Scott.
Scott and Woods have established Cross Lane Projects with the aim of bringing new contemporary art and debate to Cumbria and will present a curated programme featuring the work of local, international and British artists. The space will present a regularly changing programme of three exhibitions of contemporary art each year, accompanied by public talks and discussion events.
Cross Lane Projects is situated in a former Kendal Mint Cake factory in central Kendal.
