Pump House Gallery celebrates its second annual open call exhibition The Trouble with Painting Today, curated by Hannah Conroy and members from Wandsworth University of the Third Age (U3A).

Selecting works from over 260 submissions, curators from U3A will work with Hannah to explore painting in all its forms and varieties and present a reinterpretation of the medium.

By working with people new to the curatorial process, this exhibition will offer a new perspective to it, promising to engage the public in a thought provoking and stimulating experience.

The University of the Third Age provides life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities to retired and semi-retired people. Members come together to share their skills and life experiences.

Hannah Conroy is the current Curator of Folkestone Artworks. U3A is an organisation that provides opportunities to learn and discover for retired and semi-retired people.
