HUNGERFORD ARCADE MYTH OR MEMORY

If you happen to be in London around 
the 17th to 22nd March, why not pop down to Craft Central in St John’s Square and see Hungerford Arcade stallholder, Jane Corbett’s first London exhibition.  She will be resident for 6 days showing her decorative yet discerning mixed media sculptures.  Jane’s curious creations range from fragile porcelain and intricate textiles to botanically inspired sculptures in wax, paper and wire work all housed in antique glass domes, display cases and cabinets.

Jane lives and works in Hungerford and has run her own millinery business in Hungerford for 15 years.  Her clients include HRH the Duchess of Cambridge and she made Mrs. Middleton’s hat for the royal wedding. 
So, as you might imagine the exhibition will feature a sprinkling of millinery, but don’t expect anything as literal as a wearable hat!

Works in one section of the exhibition, including a velvet lined box housing inexplicable instruments, suggest that Jane has rediscovered artifacts belonging to a fascinating and largely overlooked 19th century collector known only as TM – but that is another story in itself.

The exhibition is called Myth or Memory and is on from 17th to 22nd March at Craft Central, 33-35 St John’s Square, London EC1M 4DS.
