Jerwood Makers Open, now in its seventh edition, is a biennial opportunity that recognises and promotes the significance of making and materials within contemporary visual arts.
This exhibition showcases new works and installations in textiles, ceramics, wood and metal, by five contemporary artists. The artists were selected from over 300 applicants in response to a national call for proposals from Uk-based makers and collaborators. The award and exhibition, which will tour to venues throughout the UK, feely allows makers to develop their creative ideas, constituting a fresh and exciting direction in their work. Each artist has received a bursary to support experimentation and the making of new work for this exhibition.
