Pop Up Arts Shop
Pavilions Shopping Centre, High Street, Birmingham
2 April – 7 April
The finest locally hand-made contemporary arts and designer crafts will be available over the Easter holiday in another pop up shop set to open in the Pavilions Shopping Centre. Following from the success of the Brilliantly Birmingham Pop Up the centre has embraced the art community this time giving space to 25 artists and designmakers from the region (image Nisha Grover).
Co-ordinator of the popular monthly Moseley Arts Market Jamie Lewis has been tasked with filling the five day Pop Up Arts Shop with gifts, jewellery, art and homewares directly from the designers at prices ranging from £10 – £500.
Artists scheduled to showcase their work are Jan Bowman, architect turned painter and illustrator; Dudley based glassmaker Ian MacDonald; jeweller Ettore Consorte (Smethwick) digital illustrator Jane Anderson (Bearwood) and Nisha Grover who produces various different artworks such as acrylic painting, textiles and murals.
As well as providing valuable retail space for the artists, the shop will also act as a gallery space, showcasing a wide selection of art from Midlands artists. Among the work on display and for sale will be the acrylics, oils and silkscreens of Emma Hardicker, who will also be compiling collections from eight fellow members of Birmingham Printmakers including Harborne based Anne Crews, Tim Southall and Phil Wilkinson.
