THE CURATOR'S VIEW- APRIL 2014
Spring marks a new season for Bevere Gallery. Not only is there exciting new work, but Easter also brings the opening of the first of three shows in the Gallery Outside over the summer months.
Art for Outdoors will reflect the philosophy of the gallery. We have selected outdoor work by twelve makers who demonstrate a singular voice and high levels of craftsmanship. Each show will have a distinctive character. All the work will be for sale. It is our hope that, over the four months, visitors will see how art can enhance any outdoor space and bring with it as much pleasure as the art and craft that decorates the home. I am looking forward to the opening of what should prove to be a stimulating series of events.
Carolyn Genders will be one of
Jin Eui Kim is a ceramic artist,
We are also showing a new body of pots from master potter Chris Carter.
Barry Stedman has many admirers as evidenced by his previous sales in the gallery. His use of colour in the abstract decoration of his vessels is one reason why his work has captured our visitors’ interest; the other is the presence which his decoration generates, whether they are tea bowls or his larger pieces.
Whilst we have themed shows from time to time, it is the featured maker programme which is designed to provide vivid contrasts in style and technique and to reinforce the incredible range and diversity of ceramic art and craft. If you enjoy the shows as much as we get pleasure from setting up each event, then we will have done our job well.
I have also had confirmation that we will have new work from Bridget Drakeford
