10 to 25 September 2011
Admission to the gallery is free
A mixed show celebrating the enormous amount of talent cultivated during the New Brewery Arts weekly programme of classes.
At New Brewery Arts we are keen to encourage professional development in artists at any level, from beginners to practicing craftspeople.
The decision to show Raw Talent in the gallery provided an ideal opportunity for students to experience a formal selection process and see their work exhibited in a professionally curated exhibition.
All students at New Brewery Arts were invited to put forward pieces for a formal selection process.
The criteria for selection were:
- Originality and creative approach
- Skill and technical ability
- Demonstration of the range and breadth of the courses on offer at New Brewery Arts
Two external artists/arts educators, hugely impressed by the quality of the work submitted, took a day to reach their decisions. The result is an exciting exhibition of prints, textiles, stained glass, painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, wood and stone that gives the work the prestige it deserves.
The Raw Talent private view evening was hosted by Sewell Mullings & Logie solicitors of Cirencester.

The 'Raw Talent' exhibition was amazing - so much talent - inspires me to try other courses eg sculpture.
The embroidery is fabulous. So is the stained glass.
