Tim Molloy's Idyll, his latest series of ink and watercolour paintings, is a sultry, occult sojourn into a stretch of his inner geography, drawing inspiration from (amongst other things) The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, by H.

Opening reception: Saturday, February 8, from 6pm – 9pm. Free entry. Tim Molloy will be in attendance.
