Horsham Museum

February 17, 2018 - March 24, 2018

The great thing about artists is that they can see the world totally differently from how you perceive it. If they match that vision with technical ability, amazingly different art work can be created. That is the experience that the public will get when visiting Responses and Reflections: the sculpture and art of Carol Wagstaff at Horsham District Council’s Horsham Museum and Art Gallery. Using sculpture, print, photography and painting, Carol explores and then translates the atmospheres, interior or historical significance of spaces to create a response to, and a reflection of, her experience thereby producing a distinctive and unique art work. Exhibition curated by Jeremy Knight.

Worthing Museum

March 26, 2011 - July 6, 2011

Carol, was recently given the opportunity of a residency to research and create a body of work for Worthing Museum, now showing in the Norwood Gallery. She was requested to select an object/subject from the Museums extensive collection; the privileged position then ensued of looking behind the scenes under the expert guidance of chief curator Emma Walter and her team which revealed the treasure trove of delights of one of the most interesting museums in the South East. Her residency began from October 2010 through to March 2011. Her eventual line of enquiry for the project evolved after seeing a small selection of Fans displayed within an extraordinary Library, cylindrical in shape, and beautifully ornate, situated in the heart of the museum. Worthing museum has a very comprehensive Fan collection, the largest outside of London and with the support of the curators, the story of the fan emerged, alongside the invaluable written history of the fan by Helene Alexander and Julia Hutt both experts on the subject. The many facets of this object were gradually revealed and surprisingly the many uses, some religious, some political, others romantic, whilst many were created for the sole purpose of advertising and propaganda.
