New Brewery Arts’ latest exhibition is inviting gallery-goers to slow down and stop to think about the landscape in Close to Nature, being held in Cirencester from Friday 27 May 2011.
Showcasing sculptural work from an array of contemporary artists, the new exhibition aims to explore our connection with nature – spanning a variety of subjects and mediums.
Highlights include Adam Buick and Caroline Sharp’s incorporation of natural materials such as clay, seaweed, wool and chalk in their work; and Ruth Moilliet’s metal and glass sculptures inspired by the plant kingdom.
Celia Smith draws delicate birds with wire; Catrin Mostyn Jones’s ceramic forms are inspired by creatures of the sea; while Dorothea Reid juxtaposes trawling nets and debris with porcelain and bone china.
Organisers say: ‘make time to stand and stare at beautifully serene pieces and arresting colourful work, and enjoy sculptures that make us think about our world.’
Please note, the dates listed here apply to the opening fortnight of this exhibition. Full dates for this exhibition are Friday 27 May to Sunday 10 July 2011.
