Cannon Hill Art School Summer Show
Sat 18 Jul – Sun 6 Sep | First Floor Gallery | Tue-Sun 11am – 6pm | Free
For one term only curator Trevor Pitt in partnership with mac birmingham set up its very own art school – the Cannon Hill Art School.
As part of their attendance students are preparing to exhibit their final projects at the inaugural Cannon Hill Art School Summer Show.
‘The Open Project’ invites artists of any age and art discipline to share their work this Summer at mac. Curating the art – making decisions about how the work is selected and displayed – will be the responsibility of emerging young creatives (aged 18-24 years) through mac birmingham’s Next Generation programme. They will have the enormous task of curating four exhibitions, leading to a final ‘salon’ exhibition’ where every piece of art will be revealed. Continue reading
This is your last few days to see Stewart Easton’s digital prints that have been hand embroidered at mac, Birmingham. The show, curated by Trevor Pitt, closes on Sunday the 22nd January.
All the works in the exhibition derive from a set of illustrated picture-book stories by Easton, written about a group of fictional characters who inhabit a creative community. Each of The Four Tragic Tales is set in a mythical place where the main characters are blessed with youth, beauty and creativity, spending their days in the pursuit of music, theatre and the arts, until war descends upon them and brings a premature end to all.
