    The Hive, Sawmill Walk, Worcester WR1 3PD

    A micro exhibition by Jilly Oxlade-Arnott of Archiimp (WOS Artist No.13). Colours at Play - this exhibition explores the colour palette. Colour is everywhere in our lives and influences us daily. From the prominence of a brand, 'Ferrari red' to which shade of shoe we buy, we make choices with colour in mind. Do the colours collide, co-ordinate, interact or blend? How do they may us feel?”

    This will be a ‘Hive Exclusive Preview Exhibition’ of the Archiimp Vivid Range launch due in October 2018 (and also directly linked to the Worcester Stands Tall giraffe created by Jilly, which will be on display in Worcester during this period).
