The Secret Staircase is an exhibition/installation by artist Caroline Isgar and writer Michèle Roberts. Inspired by the eighteenth-century tokens left by mothers with their babies at the Foundling Hospital in London (and previously shown there) it comprises artefacts, an incised table-top which also serves as a woodblock, a woodcut, a text, and an artist’s book, and explores mother-child separation in our own day.

There will be a private view and informal talk
by Michèle Roberts and Caroline Isgar
on Friday 14 October 2016 at 5.30 pm. All welcome.

Exhibition runs from Sunday 2 October to Friday 21 October 2016. Open daily from 10 am to 7 pm subject to College commitments. Visitors are advised to ring the Lodge on 01865 274100 beforehand.
