RAW CRAFT @ THE CIVIC GALLERY
NOV 14th – DEC 28th

Raw Craft captures a contemporary craft movement, presenting works characterised by a deliberate transparency of technique, materiality and process evident in their look and feel.

Focussing on furniture, the work displayed reveals a subtle originality in the way that skills and resources are employed, imbuing the furniture with a simplicity, and yet still retaining a high quality. For the makers featured, explicit making skills and materials are the central means for exploring ideas.
Curated by the Crafts Council with Michael Marriott, designer, and Brent Dzekciorius of Phillips de Pury (as curatorial advisors), the exhibition presents one-offs, limited editions and prototypes from makers including Peter Marigold, Oscar Narud and Fabien Cappello. The exhibition will be designed by Tomoko Azumi, with graphics by Turnbull Grey.

BONESHAKER 365 @ THE CIVIC GALLERY
NOV 14th – DEC 28th

Joe Armitage is BoneShaker, a Sheffield-based photographer and designer presenting works from his 365 project.
This exhibition required Joe to take a picture a day, every day, for a year. The pictures were then uploaded to the website http://www.blipfoto.com/boneshaker and created a ‘blip’ for each day. Through these ‘blips’, Joe has been able to document his year on a daily basis illustrating each shot with comments and thoughts.
Photos range from quick snaps about daily life to finished shots from commissioned photographic work and personal projects. More from BoneShaker Photography can be found at:
