LSA member Jo Sheppard is currently exhibiting 9 paintings in ‘Odyssey’,  a group show with the Charnwood based art group Artspace Loughborough

Some have chosen to explore actual journeys: narrow boat journeys in central England, photos from a train in India, the journeys of refugees to a safer life, Australian aboriginal songlines, wallpaper seen in an old cottage in New Zealand, shoes and other objects that remind us of travel.

Some journeys are imagined: the possible aftermath of a shipwreck, the exploits of a travelling circus. Other journeys have a more metaphorical quality: the artist’s own journey to develop their art or to find meaning.
