Past Artwalks 

29 September 2021

We returned on 29th September for the last Artwalk of the Summer, with 23 venues opening and 26 events across the city. The much anticipated exhibition Fred Tschida: CIRCLESPHERE launched at The Art House and Neon Workshops' 7A, demonstrating the power of neon as sculpture. Wakefield One was a hub of activity, with Ranya Abdulateef Artwalk commission 'Honouring our Refuse Collectors' taking centre stage in one of the Atrium cases. KRAFT turned their barbers into a gallery with paintings by Jake Mullins and The Polka Hop displayed the work of Rebecca Asquith which reflected how memories change and fade over time.
