The Dead Pigeon Gallery – Onsite: The Plasterer, 7th - 14th September 2017.

Josie is currently making new work which will be exhibited in a group exhibition at the Dead Pigeon Gallery, presented by Coming Home. The exhibition, titled 'OnSite: The Plasterer' brings together work by a group of artists, who were invited to exhibit by Coming Home, an initiative set up by Ronnie Hughes and Jayne Lawless who, along with their teams of builders, decorators and tradespeople, restore and rent empty homes in Liverpool.


Coming Home was created to help bring all of the empty homes in Liverpool back into use and turn them into secure, well-maintained homes to let at fair rents. The Dead Pigeon Gallery is part of a large disused building on Kempston Street, Liverpool, which is in the process of being renovated into a new creative hub called 'The Tapestry.'
