A Time and a Place

  • 17 January — 21 March 2015

Introducing the winner of our New Curator Open competition, Janice Botterill, as curator of A time and a place, an examination of artists’ residencies in the South West and how artists, designers and craft makers use drawing in the creative process.

At New Brewery Arts we love to be challenged, shook up and shown exciting, new things. And in line with our ongoing theme of professional development, we are committed to encouraging emerging talent. That’s why, this January, we are opening our doors to new, fresh ideas.

In our New Curator Open competition we called for people with a vision, asking them to come up with a concept, to design, plan and, ultimately, present an exhibition at New Brewery Arts.

Eau - Fibre - Papier - Metamorphose

  • 28 March — 30 May 2015

The French Association Chaine de Papier presents Biennial International des Arts du Fibre et Papier - an exhibition of handmade, 2D and 3D sculptural works exploring themes of transformation, metamorphosis and profound memory.

The exhibition shows that paper art can be an environmentally friendly fine art form. Artists can communicate ideas, philosophies, emotions and ideals using basic natural plant fibres and recycled materials.

Inspired by, and including works from, papermaker/artist Charmian Pollok’s Ghost Croft Archive (right), the exhibition includes complimentary works from international paper artists selected for quality and diversity.

The Gathering

  • 6 June — 11 July 2015

We are delighted to present the work of a closely knit group of makers bound together by the intensity and challenge of the Crafts Council professional development scheme, Hothouse, which offers selected makers a tailor-made, six month programme of business and creative support.

Makers are chosen for their high level of technical craftsmanship and originality, with The Gathering featuring the Hothouse 4 Midland cohort.

For over a year, The Gathering provided a focal point for artists including Brittany Delany, Katharina Klug, Katharine Eisenkoeck, Louisa Finch, Julia Jowett, Hilary Mayo, Sarah Brown, Sue Brown and Theo Wright. With backgrounds in a wide range of art and craft practices, all have generated new and exciting work for the exhibition.
