An exchange of metal-based craft ideas has resulted in Craft In The Bay’s COLLOQUY exhibition
June 11 @ 10:00 – 17:00
Curated by Mary Ann Simmons, Beate Gegenwart and Kye-Yeon Son, this exhibition’s title means conversation, and has communication and discussion at its centre. Whether to share thoughts or create future opportunities, Colloquy features pieces including 3D works, wall pieces, jewellery and intricate makes. A partnership between UK and Canadian artists, all with an interest in metal, it brings together a culturally diverse group of individuals united by a love of metalwork. Having shared their ideas amongst each other for the past two years, each artist has a unique style.
The artists which feature within the exhibition include the Gower Peninsula’s Beate Gegenwart, whose work with copper, steel and brass focuses on themes of belonging. Mary Ann Simmons is a more complex box maker of sorts, and creates three-dimensional art pieces using scoring. Sculptures by Rauni Higson depict the rolling mountains of Snowdonia, while Llŷn Peninsula-based contemporary silversmith Yusuke Yamamoto’s work is often a manifestation of everyday observations.
