We’ve got another minisode this week for you guys! Alice and Amy got an invite to check out an exhibition by Claire Dorsett that opened at Workplace Gallery in Gateshead the other week.

For this week’s episode Alice and Amy finally went on their ‘sister trip’ up to Edinburgh, where they checked out the ‘Beyond Realism | Dada and Surrealism‘ exhibition at The National Scottish Museum Of Modern Art. We do love a bit of surrealism and it was great finding some familliar artists work and learning about some new ones (well, new to us because surrealism is an old movement).
Exhibition runs until 25th October 2020.
Here’s some more information about the exhibition.
