OPEN16: The Artist's Marks Exhibition
Revealing the ‘unfinished’ within the Chambers Archive
The Artist’s Marks exhibition explores the experimentation and thought processes that went into designing the ‘ideal’ artist’s mark to distinguish artist’s work for Pilkington’s Tile & Pottery Company. We do not know exactly who created these ‘unfinished’ designs, nor if these were for a commissioned piece but by examining the artist’s style of mark making, we can reveal if nothing else, natural talent which deserves to be exposed to the public.
What would your signature design look like?
See the exhibition handout for details about the collection and supporting context.
This exhibition is open in parallel with OPEN16, a fantastic event at which to celebrate the Peter Scott Gallery’s valuable collections and for the public to have a say in what we display next.
OPEN16 is taking place in the social space of the gallery from 21st April – 14th May 2016.
