Open 6 September-28 October 2016 –
[email protected] Exchange
In their latest exhibition, seven CHAS artists share new, original works exploring the theme of Exchange. The artists are Ruth Judd, Jane Spence, Eleanor Parkes, Wendy Palmer, Alex Clark, Patrik Kuziel and Matt Gale.
CHAS is a Birmingham artists’ group that grew out of a project called Cannon Hill Art School, conceived by Birmingham artist and curator Trevor Pitt. 72 artists came together for three months to share ideas and support one another, culminating in a summer exhibition at mac Birmingham last summer.
The central tenet of CHAS is that members learn together and from one another, exchanging knowledge, ideas and technical skills.
The second element of the exhibition is a CHAS postcard exchange project with the Preston Street Union artists in Exeter. Their work responds to CHAS postcard-scale artworks mailed to them in May and exhibited as part of Art Week Exeter 2016.
