On a cool November afternoon Sime Gallery held it’s 1st Annual talk at St Mary’s church Worplesdon. The talk was given by Mary Branson contemporary light sculpturer and artist. The iconic New Dawn piece is situated permanently in St Stephens Hall, Houses of Parliament. This celebrates the centenary of the suffrage movement, 168 “venus “symbols made of glass discs representing the women who fought for the right to vote, over 100 years ago.
Nearly 100 people attended the talk and enjoyed tea and homemade cakes afterwards. Then on leaving the church, Worplesdon Parish Council Christmas lights both on the Christmas tree at the church grounds and local trees on Perry Hill Green were alight. A perfect end to New Dawn inspiration to the installation talk given by Mary Branson.
