Contemporary Crafts Network
Tuesday 23rd July - Sunday 4th August 2013 SILVER
CCN celebrates its 25 year anniversary.
The Contemporary Crafts Network was formed in 1988 by Kate Naylor-High in Lincolnshire. Originally called Lincolnshire and Humberside Contemporary Crafts, the group aimed to form a self-supporting exhibiting group.
Over time the number of members grew to 25 and in 1997 Lincolnshire and Humberside disbanded as a regional arts board, this paved the way for the group to broaden its catchment area and re name themselves as the Contemporary Crafts Network.
Meetings are held regularly and are more than just business meetings to plan exhibitions and events; they form a vessel for valuable interaction for artists and makers to discuss and exchange knowledge, experience and ideas.
The present group consists of 28 members with specialists in the fields of ceramics, sculpture, felt work, weaving, textiles, silver, gold, jewellery, blown and kiln formed glass, paper, wood and furniture and mixed media.
This exhibition brings together work from all members, the theme of silver will run through the exhibition emphasising this anniversary and celebrating the achievement of working together across a range of medias for 25 years.
Private View which will be opened officially by Peter Moss on Saturday 27th July 2 - 4 pm.
Open daily 10am - 5pm
