Crescent Arts supports and promotes contemporary visual arts practice; we nurture emergent artistic talent, and enable greater access to the visual arts. Crescent Arts focusses its work in three main areas: an exhibition programme; subsidised studios and open access facilities for artists; opportunities for learning, training and development for artists, visitors, young people and all other members of local communities.
Artist studio or collective, Gallery
During exhibitions, the gallery is open from Thursday - Saturday between 11.00 am and 4.00 pm, or as advertised. Visitors are also welcome by appointment.
Admission is free
Crescent Arts provides a workshop programme and access to facilities in printmaking and ceramics. Artists and groups can hire space and facilities on a daily basis by arrangement and booking.
Wheelchair access is difficult, but we are happy to assist through prior arrangement.
- 1 — 20 December 2014 *on now
Footnotes presents work by four artists taking up studios at Crescent Arts in 2014; Sarah Coggrave, Serena Partridge and artist partnership Caitlin and Andrew Webb-Ellis.
By siting specific examples of their work together the exhibition references the broader practice and concerns of each artist and work that is to come. It invites comparisons and visitors to the exhibition will most probably be struck by contrasts between the works and use of very different media and approaches. However, there are parallels that become more apparent on closer scrutiny.
Open 11.00 am – 4.00 pm Thursdays to Saturdays, and by appointment.
