After a successful first year hosting the Jerwood Drawing Prize, we welcome back Jerwood Visual Arts to our Gallery for Jerwood Makers Open this autumn.
Following an open call for entries, Jerwood Visual Arts has announced the artists selected to exhibit in Jerwood Makers Open – a unique commissioning opportunity recognising the most exciting new talents in contemporary applied arts.
The artists were selected by an independent panel comprising Grant Gibson, Editor of Crafts magazine, Isobel Dennis, Director of New Designers, and Michael Marriott, leading product designer and curator.
We welcome these artists to our Gallery to promote the significance of making and materials within the visual arts arena and to give an insight into how these contemporary artists are defining or challenging the boundaries of what has traditionally been described as applied arts.
The awards gifted to each artist afford them a rare opportunity to freely develop creative ideas central to their individual practices independently of specific commissioning structures.
You can also see our photos from the launch of the show here.
