FORGE | ART PREVIEW
Craft in the Bay, Cardiff
Sat 2 Sept – Sun 15 Oct
The award-winning gallery Craft in the Bay gallery is to get its turn in hosting the touring exhibition Forge from Ruthin Craft Centre until the middle of October. The gallery aims to present itself as the regional hub for Craft and Applied Art in Cardiff and is Cardiff’s only dedicated Craft and Applied Art Gallery. The gallery itself has been recognised for its architectural significance and is thus a perfect venue to host inventive and pioneering art works.
The touring exhibition, Forge is set to display a wonderful range of contemporary forged metalwork from a range of international artists. Each selected artist has been marked as having a notable impact upon the discipline. Moving away from traditional blacksmithing, the work, curated by Delyth Done, Course Leader of Artist Blacksmithing at Hereford College of Arts, celebrates exciting and innovative ideas within forged metalwork.
The artists represented include Claudio Bottero, Ambrose Burne and Leszek Sikon, with each of the fifteen artists showcasing their abilities and progressive ideas. Having built a reputation for providing the public with a number of opportunities to view and interact with high-quality craft and applied art exhibitions Forge promises to be an interesting and engaging exhibition that will showcase metalwork of the highest calibre.
