Joshua Rose: The Art of Ply11 April – 19 May
Joshua Rose combines his backgrounds in Fine Art and furniture making to create unique and original printed plywood furniture. A range of prints and artworks are also exhibited which have influenced the design of the flat-pack furniture, sometimes being printed directly onto it.
Rachel Barbaresi and Susanna Round:Where Clouds Are Made...23 May – 30 June
‘What?! No more Didcot cooling towers?! But that’s where clouds are made! (Or so generations of Oxfordshire children are told.)’Will Wiles on Twitter 19.11.12
This exhibition explores the power station’s role over the last 40 years in people’s memories and imagination. The gallery hosts an interactive installation which responds to archive material, conversations with employees, ex-employees and residents, and is inspired by the relations of scale between the town and power plant. Barbaresi and Round are working in residence at Didcot Power Station A during the first part of 2013, in a project funded by RWE Npower and managed by South Oxfordshire District Council’s Arts Development Officer.
EXTRA EVENTS Free tours of the exhibition, with the artists, on 8 June & 22 June at 2pm, and a themed creative workshop for children on 28 May from 1-3pm (see Half Term for details).
The exhibition tour on the 8 June is led by James Attlee, writer on the Train for First Great Western and Oxford based author of Isolarion: A Different Oxford Journey and Nocturne: A Journey in Search of Moonlight.
Open Exhibition: The Colour Green
Thursday 11 July – Sunday 17 August
This year’s open exhibition takes a colour for inspiration. The colour green has many associations, some in conflict with each other. Linked with nature and also sustainable living, it can also be the colour of fantastical creatures, or even the poisonous potion of a wicked witch, who might be green with envy.
All visual artists can apply and you can submit up to four pieces for consideration.
To be considered for the Colour Green exhibition, you must complete the Open Exhibition application form which can be downloaded from the green box above. You will need to include images (hard copy, on CD or emailed jpegs) of the work you are submitting.
The deadline for applications is 19 May 2013. Applicants will receive notification of the outcome of their application by 7 June.
To submit: All applications should be marked Visual Arts and Crafts Application and
