Opening night will also include the launch of a book ‘Truth or Dare’ detailing Wendy’s accomplishments and many of the exhibition works. Wendy will be in attendance on opening night and will also conduct an insightful floor talk discussing her inspiration and practice in the gallery at 11am, Saturday 11th May.
