HEY CLLAY! PRRIVATE VIEW

 

 

Venture Arts would like to invite visitors to come and see artwork by some of our most talented ceramicists. Artists on show will include Barry Anthony Finan and Horace Lindezey.

 

 

Some of our studio ceramicists will be present to tell you more about what inspires them and will be on hand to show you how to take part in the creation of a live ceramics piece entitled Do you eat wedding cake? Inspired by the artists themselves.

 

 

Participants will look at Finan’s unique use of text and be shown various techniques of applying text to a large slab of clay. The results will be a collaborative piece in which participants will be encouraged to answer one of Lindezey’s favourite questions… Do you eat wedding cake?

 

 

The exhibition will continue throughout April and will coincide with Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April.

 

 

Please book if you are interested in attending this event
