New Art West Midlands may currently be showcasing the best in emerging talent, but the first New Art WM Annuale will be celebrating the more established artists of the region.
Taking place from 20 March to 15 April 2015 at ARTicle Gallery, Birmingham School of Art it will include paintings, sculpture, drawing, photography, video and digital artworks by 14 artists who live and work in the West Midlands. All the exhibited artwork, plus further prints and paintings from selected regional artists, will be on sale, with price-tags ranging from £93 to £3500. The exhibition is designed to showcase the West Midlands’ leading artists and make it easy for visitors to buy and perhaps become regular collectors of contemporary art.
The exhibiting artists include Yvonne Hindle, who presents brightly coloured abstract paintings and photographer Vanley Burke, who shows prints from his classic series capturing life in urban Birmingham. Elizabeth Rowe – currently artist in residence at The New Art Gallery Walsall – will present works on newspaper, and the winner of New Art West Midlands 2013 Rafal Zar will show new paintings and sculpture. Other artists showing their work include Graham Chorlton, Lucy Hutchinson, Corey Hayman and Matt Westbrook.
