Sculpture Open Exhibition at the RWA from Saturday 16th March until Sunday 2nd June 2019Posted on: 14 Mar 2019
Sculpture Open Exhibition will be on display at RWA (Royal West of England Academy) in Bristol from Saturday 16th March until Sunday 2nd June 2019.
Taking a break from the usual biennial open drawing exhibition, Drawn 2019 will occupy the main gallery spaces with a collection of pieces by internationally-renowned sculpters Ann Christopher RA, Daphne Wright and Kate MccGwire, Artistic Director of New Art Centre at Roche Court Stephen Feeke and RWA Academicians Ian Middleton, Simon Hitchens and Dallas Collins.
The exhibition will celebrate concepts of medium, diversity of form and scale, and will also include a bonus attraction in the form of The Sculpture Lab, which will encourage interaction with the pieces and the opportunity to engage, test, discuss, play and create, suitable for all ages and abilities.
Sponsored by Fresh Art Fair and Art UK, it's a different take on the usual artistic theme that showcases some of the best in sculptural techniques and innovative artistic talent. Opening times are from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
Tickets cost £7.95 for adults (including an 80p donation), £6.75 concessions (including a 70p donation), while under 18s and University of Bristol and UWE students get in for free. National Art Pass holders can also take advantage of a 50% discount.
