Craft Goes Pop! | 24th January 2015 - 7th March 2015
Craft Goes Pop is a celebration of The Pop Art movement which emerged during the 1950s reflecting upon themes of popular culture, mass media, consumerism, means of production and bold colour statements. This exhibition will revisit the Pop Art movement through contemporary craft, bringing together a neon mix of works made by hand by various designer/makers working in a range of craft media.
In The Window | 1st - 31st January 2015
Partners in life and art, Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones operate from a studio in the village of Rosedale Abbey. Drawing inspiration from the elemental beauty of their rural surroundings, they have developed a unique aesthetic.
Their ‘defiantly decorative’ work can be found in both public and private collections locally, nationally and internationally.
