A major showcase of new work by 16 professional artists from the region, highlights new directions for many participants, including painting, sculpture, engraving, print-making, ceramics, silver smithing and installation.
Of Sense & Sensibilities, curated by Louisa Ennis-Thomas, follows the literary thread running through this year’s events. Artists reflect upon their outside influences, with a book from each artist’s personal collection accompanying their major work in the exhibition.
‘Sense & Sensibilities showcases some of our region’s best-known visual artists as well as a sneak peak at up-coming new talent. Each year the event encourages the development of a selection of early career artists from within our community’, says curator, Louisa Ennis-Thomas
