The Art House is delighted to collaborate with The Royal Society of Sculptors (RSS) to stage The Gilbert Bayes Award (2022 Exhibition). The collaborative exhibition brings some of the most outstanding talents working within the field of sculpture production to Wakefield – a place with a renewed reputation as a city of sculpture.
The annual Gilbert Bayes Award provides vital support for early-career sculptors during what can be a difficult transition from their studies to professional practice. The exhibition brings together the 2022 awardees, including ten exciting artists; including Catriona Robertson, Emily Woolley, Iwona Rozbiewska, Lewis Davidson, Louisa Johnson, Rosalie Wammes, Sasha Tishkov, Veronika Neukirch, Yambe Tam and Zara Ramsay.
We are also excited to announce that the final works will be selected and curated by Thorp Stavri, a London-based curatorial platform, comprising exciting curators Eric Thorp and Nicholas Stavri. The exhibition will bring together an incredibly wide range of themes, from investigations of space and architecture to commentary on culture and social issues, from the environment to other-worldly realities, and much more.
