With a new team and a new direction, the region’s Contemporary Visual Arts Network (formerly Turning Point West Midlands) is re-branding to become New Art West Midlands – a name and identity that better reflects our progressive role in developing and promoting contemporary visual arts across the West Midlands. This will be an opportunity to find out more about the new team, our programme and upcoming plans, and to find out more about the 2017 New Art West Midlands graduate exhibitions.
The evening includes music and an exhibition of work from artists and spaces from around the region organised by the Office for Art, Design and Technology. Artists include:
James Lomax is an artist based at Studio Capri in Birmingham. He has recently relocated from London and in 2014 was recipient of the Sky Academy Arts Scholarship.
Anna Francis is an artist based at Airspace in Stoke-on-Trent. She is course leader on the BA Fine Art Course and is an Associate Professor in Fine Art and Social Practice at Staffordshire University.
Amelia Crouch is an artist based in West Yorkshire. She was recently commissioned by Coventry Artspace Partnerships as part of their City Arcadia Festival.
