Winter exhibition showcases top contemporary craft practitioners

Drawn to Craft
14 November 2019

Salisbury Arts Centre’s winter exhibition showcases work by some of the top contemporary British Craft practitioners. Drawn to Craft is inspired by drawing and reflects on the drawn line.

Drawn to Craft, which runs from 21 November until 18 January, is an opportunity to see and to buy work that is ceramic, woven, illustrated and printed alongside jewellery and textiles.

The artists exhibiting are Sarah Young (print); Jennifer Hall (ceramics); Jennie Gilbert (ceramics); Francesca Mclean (illustration); Louise Brown (baskets); Colin Chetwood (lamps); Sheila Herring (ceramics); and Bronwen Gwillim (jewellery).

Coinciding with the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 exhibition at Salisbury Museum, Salisbury Arts Centre will also host IMPRINT – Drawing on the Altar stage from 21 November until 18 January. IMPRINT was a drawing festival for families at Salisbury Museum from 29-31 October. On display at Salisbury Arts Centre will be a selection of outcomes from the Museum’s drawing workshops.

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize, formerly the Jerwood Drawing Prize, is the largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing prize provided the inspiration behind the Wiltshire Creative Drawn to Craft exhibition.

Drawn to Craft runs from 21 November until 18 January and can be viewed from 10am to 3pm Monday to Saturday in the gallery space at Salisbury Arts Centre.
