New faces at Cirencester arts centre
NEW faces and projects are set to draw in more customers to an arts and crafts centre in Cirencester.
New Brewery Arts has welcomed two new trustees to the charity, who have been appointed to use their experience in education and the arts to take the centre forward in 2013.
Cirencester College principal and chief executive, Kim Clifford, has joined the team in the hope of forging stronger links between the organisation and the education sector.
Another new face at New Brewery Arts is Chris Eckersley, who is an internationally renowned artist and designer, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of the Chartered Society of Designers.
As well as a new team, the centre has unveiled a new term packed full of courses, workshops and community projects.
From this month, elderly carers and residents from Hunters Care will be ‘Making Memories’ in clay with the help of ceramicist and sculptor Claire Lodger as part of NBA’s focus on Participatory Arts for the Elderly.
A pop up exhibition of works by four distinctive local artists and sculptors, including the new collection by double gold Chelsea Flower Show winner Jack Russell, will also be on show this month at the NBA gallery.
