Crafty Networking Event

Out of the Dark – Jay Blades

Thursday 30 July 2015, 18.00-20.00
Pitt Rivers Museum
    

Out of the Dark’s Director, Jay Blades, joins us to discuss the importance of getting new generations involved in traditional crafts, and the transformative effect that such involvement can have on young people’s prospects. OTD is a charitable social enterprise repurposing disgarded objects and giving them a modern twist while in the process, training, educating and employing young people form disadvantaged backgrounds. Jay will discuss how OTD founders set up the project and have built the support needed to allow it to continue and flourish.

Peter Care: Exhibition Preview

Friday 31st July, 6-8pm    

Join us at the gallery for a glass of wine on Friday 31st July, 6-8pm to celebrate the opening of our latest exhibition of paintings by Peter Care. Born Kent in 1952, Peter Care has for many years lived and worked on the continent, but in 2008 returned to live in England and now works from his home studio on the Oxfordshire / Gloucestershire border. During the 1980’s in the UK he was known primarily as a ceramicist working in porcelain. Peter Care still defines his practice as being closer to sculpture than to traditional painting as he uses the material (paint) in a very physical way.

Peter Care’s exhibition of recent paintings runs until the 23rd August.
