Made in Kings Heath 2016 Invitation

image

Autumn has definitely arrived with falling leaves, frost and beautiful blue skies and so has November. That means this month also welcomes the return of our annual Made in Kings Heath open studio Christmas fair. We would love to invite you to come along on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th November to share a glass or two of mulled wine and festive nibbles. This year we have expanded to include two open studios and yet more Kings Heath linked artists, designers and makers for you. You can find out more about the artists participating this year and and the event at www.madeinkingsheath.com

Melanie Keevil at the RBSA

Ariel View of Birmingham

Ariel View of Birmingham

I visited the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists last week and caught Melanie Keevils’ (ARBSA) new exhibition of ceramic wall panels in the Craft Gallery. Many of the pieces featured are inspired by ancient civilisations, the colours and landscapes of France and Spain, and the geology of the Cornish and Welsh Coastlines. The ceramic panels have a 3d surface relief with each area of low relief filled with subtle coloured glazes. 

The show features a range of Melanie’s new pieces called Fragments and her ariel images of Birmingham. I loved these ariel wall pieces, both the stunning larger single panels (see above), and the smaller panels (below). The small individual panels work both in isolation or grouped together giving a wider ariel grid view.  Melanie’s work is an inspirational study of topography and her ariel interpretations of Birmingham are a cartographic delight. image

Get yourselves down to the RBSA to see the exhibition – it runs until Saturday 11th October at the RBSA Gallery, 4 Brook Strret, St Paul’s, Birmingham, B3 1SA. www.rbse.org.uk
