Exhibition at ‘The Crypt’

College is moving ahead fast, I think it is just 7 weeks to us having to clear out the studios. No pressure there then!

Below are the details of The Crypt exhibition so if you can please wander along and have a look. Wear your thermals as it is not a very warm place – it’s a Crypt what more can we expect. Do not think this work is anything like I have done before! I will be there for the Private view on Wednesday and on Sunday afternoon, apart from that it is still nose down at college. I will put a picture of the installation on the blog next week at the latest.

6-10 May 2015


opening times: 11-5pm daily

Private view: 6 May 6-8.30pm

13 contemporary artists, 13 highly skilled craftsmen, 1 extraordinary collaborative exhibition inspired by the overarching theme of the inaugural London Craft Week; ‘London’s Hidden Craft’, MAKE / CREATE will feature 13 craft scholars from Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) and 13 fine artists, selected by Griffin Gallery, in dialogue with each other. The spirit of the exhibition lies in the desire to demonstrate the contemporary nature of craft, and the craft involved in contemporary art – changing perceptions of both. The selected craftsmen and artists were placed in pairs by a judging panel that included Julia Robinson of QEST, Becca Pelly-Fry, Director of Griffin Gallery, Rebecca Byrne, Events Manager of Griffin Gallery, Steve Macleod, photographer and Director of Metro Imaging, and Richard Edwards, Visual Arts and Craft Lead for Arts Council England.
