Rivers of the World - Wed 29 Aug - Sun 9 Sep, 11am – 6pm

A magnificent exhibition of river-inspired artwork created by young people around the world working in collaboration with professional artists to explore and express what rivers mean to communities today.

This year we have worked with young people from Barking & Dagenham, Exeter, Worcestershire, Kenya, Malawi and Palestine who are in year one of the project alongside Bromley & Bexley, Hull, Reading, Nepal, Nigeria and Sierra Leone who are in year two. I was one of the commissioned artists to work with the Worcestershire Schools.

Rivers of the World has worked with 30,000 12-14 year olds across the UK and in 30 countries around the world to inspire young people about rivers through art and creativity.

Glasshaus XIII - 20th September - 28th October

The highly successful annual glass exhibition is now in its thirteenth year and this time will
be focussed on the interaction between glass and science. It will show how scientific
principles, either physical or chemical, can be exploited in the making process – or how
science can directly influence the production, or be the subject of the artwork.
Inspired by medical science a series of pieces show the reimagining of what an organic
cell is, and how the act of making something that seems familiar show just how alien it
may actually appear. Four linked pieces by another artist represent the morphologies of
red blood cells, responding to a number of hereditary diseases that affect their shape.
New techniques for integrating the graphic impact of medical scans with the material and
optical qualities of glass were developed when an artist became fascinated by how
making, particularly in glass, can crystallise and communicate powerful ideas.
The science laboratory has inspired one of the regular exhibitors at Glasshaus to
apply fanciful glass decoration to syringes. Another artist exhibits his version of retorts.
