It is surprising how quickly our cycle of exhibitions comes around and here we are about to have our 13th Annual Graduate Show. We have always seen this as an important event for a number of reasons. Firstly, it provides new and emerging talent with a chance to show their work in an established ceramic gallery. From our perspective, it is also a major opportunity to add new voices to the wide range of ceramicists we represent, indeed a number of graduates have become established exhibitors in our maker portfolio over the years. It is also heartening that the exhibition is so well attended as so many of our visitors welcome seeing and purchasing previously unseen work of quality and originality.
This years exhibition has 12 participants selected from across the UK.
All our visitors will be asked to cast their vote for the Graduate they most admire and the one with the most votes at the end of the show will be represented by the Gallery over the following year. We will also draw one of the voting forms out of a hat and the lucky one will win a voucher for £100 to spend in the Gallery.
We hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be a most stimulating show.
