Contemporary Applied Arts : Gifted - Contemporary Applied Arts Christmas Exhibition

PV: 15.11.2012; 6-8pm.

Focus artists include Sasha Wardell, Susan Nemeth, Derek Wilson and Claire Partington

This year CAA has invited all their members to participate in a collaborative seasonal show based on the theme of gifting. The title also describes the talent of our members. Each participant has produced a series of up to five unique limited edition items, representative of their work and retailing at just £50, £100 and £200.

In addition to these specially made pieces we will show an extraordinary breadth of work that our members are renowned for, including seven focus artists.

Whether looking for an original gift for a friend or a loved one or perhaps a treat for yourself, ‘Gifted' offers affordable and unique pieces from some of the foremost applied artists of our time.

CAA staff will also be running a programme of FREE workshops for children where they can create and make, inspired by the gallery. For more information please visit

On Thursday 13th December from 6-8pm we will be holding a book launch for ‘Making and Drawing' by Kyra Cane. Informed by interviews with artists across a broad range of disciplines, and often with special access to their sketchbooks and studios, Kyra Cane explores the many ways in which artists use drawing to inform, inspire and create their work.

Makers at this event include (Members in Bold)
