After the festive celebrations, many people feel low when returning to the daily grind of work. But as January comes to an end, so do the famed ‘blues’ associated with the first month of every new year. January is a busy time for change, both personal and professional, and Primavera is no exception. In between stock checks, seeking potential artists and the rearrangement of our upstairs gallery, Primavera has been a buzz of activity as we welcome the New Year and the changes 2019 promises to bring.
Primavera’s Upstairs Gallery have undergone a significant change as glass work, ceramic animals and stunning sculptures have been separated into three distinct rooms; the Glass Room, Charles Lamb Room, and the Animal Room. Pieces within the Glass Room includes works by artists such as; Tim Harris, Peter Layton, and Gemma Corvalan. Per its namesake, the Animal Room is a menagerie of ceramic creatures ranging in size, shape and species. Within the historic room where the famous poet Charles Lamb and his wife lived, sculptures and ceramics alike proudly overlook the beautiful King’s College.
At Primavera, we show our appreciation for some of the finest art and craft from around the UK by giving the public the chance to interact and touch the art, as well as the opportunity to view a selection on our website. Our aim is to deliver the best possible exposure for our artists and makers. A recent visit to Top Drawer, had us reaching out to independent artists we hope to display within the near future, and aid in their development within the artistic community. Exciting things are sure to come to Primavera as we receive new stock from ceramicist Stephen Murfitt and Julia Roxburgh.
