Yorkshire Sculpture Park presents Editions and Objects
Posted on by Beyond Bespoke
Question: What happens when two organisations committed to showcasing the work of inspirational artists gets together? Answer: a new exhibition showcasing the best of British contemporary art at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
For those with a passion for art, there’s a lot to love this summer, from that national treasure, the Royal Academy summer show, to the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery and many more besides. Added to that is a new joint exhibition with St Jude’s at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Editions and Objects, which opens this month and will feature 13 of the most well respected UK-based artists, designers and makers, from Mark Hearld and Peter Green OBE to Angie Lewin. Their work will be shown throughout the YSP Centre, with each artist showing a selection of limited edition two and three-dimensional prints and objects working with the theme of editions and multiples. The pieces will range from screen prints, lithographs, ceramics and woodcuts to jewellery and scarves.
Also accompanying the exhibition is a new fabrics launch from St Jude’s, a wood engraving workshop with Angie Lewin on 30 and 31 July 2016, as well as a range of exclusive merchandise designed by the artists, including a tea towel and mug, tote bag, tin of pencil crayons and a notebook. All works are on sale, together with a series of three limited-edition prints individually designed by Mark Hearld, Angie Lewin and Emily Sutton. Printed by Penfold Press, the series is available exclusively from YSP.
Editions and Objects expands on an existing relationship between YSP and St Jude’s, two organisations committed to showcasing the work of inspirational artists. Founded by Simon and Angie Lewin in 2005, St Jude’s collaborates with an eclectic range of artists — including Ed Kluz and Emily Sutton — to create and print unique fabrics, cushion covers and wallpapers.
Editions and Objects runs from 25 June-30 October 2016 and is produced in partnership with St Jude’s Gallery.
