CULPTURES mim­ick­ing blood cells and tun­nels in the shape of hu­man bones are part of a new ex­hi­bi­tion at Cen­tral Art Gallery in Ash­ton, open­ing this week.

Vis­i­tors to Gen­er­a­tion AIR will have a mul­ti­sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence, with mag­i­cal sound and light­ing, and op­por­tu­ni­ties to han­dle parts of the soft sculp­tures.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is de­signed to be en­joyed by young chil­dren just as much as adults.

Gen­er­a­tion AIR has been cre­ated by artists Spacecadets, who have de­lighted au­di­ences all over the coun­try with their other-worldly in­flat­a­bles.

AIR is one of four in­spi­ra­tional ex­hi­bi­tions tour­ing gal­leries in the north of Eng­land un­der the name of Gen­er­a­tion.

The two-year tour is spe­cially de­signed to en­cour­age fam­i­lies to visit con­tem­po­rary art gal­leries.

The sculp­tures were in­spired by the theme of re­gen­er­a­tion in­side the hu­man body.

Be among the first to see the ex­hi­bi­tion and meet the artist by com­ing along to the pre­view on Thurs­day, April 30 at 4pm.

There is also an event day on May 5, from 11am to 3pm, for pre-school­ers to ex­plore the ex­hi­bi­tion through sto­ry­telling, dance and pup­petry, and an­other on Fri­day, May 29.
