Material Matters Exhibition...

A new, and unexpected, venue for the visual arts opens its doors on May 19th for an exhibition which threads together traditional and contemporary art. 


From the 19th to the 26th of May the Bury St Edmunds Farmer’s Club will host Material Matters, a collaborative exhibition by artists Hazel Bradshaw, Sarah Valentine and Fiona Moran.

Their varied backgrounds, which include making hats for the High Sherriff of Suffolk, exhibiting in the Republic of Ireland and creating props for the Harry Potter films, coalesce around a love of manipulating materials, including metals, textiles and polymer clay, into works of art which are undoubtedly contemporary and yet retain a sense of the traditional. “The work we create is quite distinct from each other’s,” explained Sarah, “and yet the accord between our materials and the creative processes we use, give the finished pieces a harmony when they are exhibited together.”

Art and ceramics, millinery, wirework and jewellery all feature in the exhibition which is open from 10am until 4pm daily. Should you wish to find out more about the processes and inspirations behind the work then there is a chance to meet the artists on Sunday 21st, when all three will be at The Farmers’ Club from 10am until 4pm.
