Colour Theory

19 March 21 April 2018

This March, Contemporary Applied Arts presents Colour Theory, a kaleidoscopic selection of exquisite decorative and functional hand-crafted objects to celebrate spring. 

On display will be a spectrum of colour and style across our entire gallery and featuring beautiful pieces from all our represented disciplines to complement and enhance each other.

This is the first in a series of showcases and exhibitions celebrating our 70th anniversary year, in which we focus on the innate harmony between the work of all our maker members and on the non-hierarchical approach of showing remarkable objects of varying materials and styles side by side, which is so characteristic of our multi-disciplinary organisation. 

A wide range of our maker members working in ceramics, glass, furniture, jewellery, metal, paper, textiles and wood will be included in this showcase.
