Few subjects escape Ledger's gaze, whether it be on holiday or at work, children at play or at school, the washing on the line, a city skyline at night, or the corner shops and back streets populated by buses, dogs, lamp posts, the occasional drunk or shoppers with prams. Humour and pathos in her art works evokes another dimension, often providing the viewer a momentary smile. The show takes place 22 February
