The latest exhibition at Qube in Oswestry is called ‘Process’, showcasing the work of twenty-three different artists using various materials.
The exhibition aims to demonstrate the background work that goes into creating a finished artwork, including everything from initial drawings, sketchbooks, models, samples, testers, and even complete failed attempts.
Most of the artists in the exhibition are local to Oswestry, with some from further afield, including Liverpool, North Wales, and Walsall. The exhibition covers textiles, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery, glass, printmaking, painting, cyanotype printing, illustration, rag rugs and stitching.
Qube’s Art and Creativity Officer, Gemma Manning-Bentley says “In the spirit of “New Year, New Me” we know that many people try out new crafts and skills. It’s easy to become disheartened when we don’t master things immediately, but it’s important to remember that anyone good at anything has put in lots of time and effort to get there!”
As well as the exhibition, there will be opportunities to meet with artists during drop-in sessions on Saturday mornings, from 10 am until 12 pm, workshops with some of the artists to allow you to learn their craft, and there will be a Crafty Evening on Thursday 29th February from 6-8pm, where makers to bring along their current projects.
