ART inspired by Alice in Wonderland is part of celebrations at Oxford Castle ’s O3 Gallery this month.
It features everything from paintings and digital soundscapes to this installation featuring familiar Alice trademarks and memorabilia.
This year marks 150 years since Lewis Carroll told the story for the first time to young Alice Liddell in Oxford.
Volunteer Hannah Penny said: “I really love the exhibition, especially how women artists have responded to the idea of Alice.”
She is pictured with an installation using old toys and music playing equipment. Ms Penny is also holding Alice: Down the Hole by Elena Kalis. The picture on the left is called Follow the White Rabbit by Katarzyna Widmanska.
The exhibition runs until August 5.
Co-Curator Joao Philippe Reid said: “This diverse group exhibition showcases an array of artistic techniques and methodologies from artists who have all drawn inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s famous story.”
