'Into The Light'

As the UK opens up in the wake of lockdown, the Society of Designer Craftsmen is pleased to present ‘Into The Light’, a celebratory exhibition at Chichester’s historic Oxmarket Gallery, bringing together exciting work from over 30 artists working in contemporary crafts including textiles, ceramics, glass, wood, paper, silver and jewellery.

The selected exhibitors have responded to the ‘Into The Light’ call in a variety of ways. For many, whilst lockdown was challenging, it fuelled a new body of work which they are keen to share in the emerging real world. For others, the title promised the prospect of life returning to normal, stimulating a resurgence of their creativity.

All have produced work to the highest standards of originality and craftmanship. The magnificent setting of Chichester’s Oxmarket Gallery, a deconsecrated medieval church in the heart of the city, forms the perfect stage for this new unveiling.

Ranging from the sumptuous darkness of tapestry-weaver Margaret Jones’ ‘The Way of All Flesh’ to the glorious luminosity of Fabrizia Bazzo’s glass panel ‘Inside Out’, the works selected for this exhibition are an excellent reflection of the skills, ambition and creativity of members of this renowned Society.

All work in the exhibition will be for sale and commissions are undertaken.
