Smashing Times are delighted to announce we have set up a new online exhibition hub. The exhibition hub goes live on Sunday 18 October 2020 at 7pm with the opening of the virtual art exhibition Emotional Landscapes featuring visual art, poetry, words, music and discussion. The exhibition is inspired by an artistic response to peace, health and well-being, influences of the pandemic, and intersections of time and space in a changing landscape. To accompany the exhibition Smashing Times have created an Emotional Landscapes Panel Discussion on the themes of Arts, Health and Well-Being which can be viewed on the exhibition homepage.
