AboutAn exhibition by fine artists from the Midlands who work with glass, ceramics and sculpture.
The MAGiCS' group was formed whilst some of the members completed their MAs in Art and Design at the University of Wolverhampton.
Exhibiting as a group gives a marketing strength to the initiative; the members aim to promote their work to a wider audience within the Midlands, whilst at the same time raising awareness of the work done by other ceramic and glass practitioners in the locality.
The exhibition at âThe Public' is part of a tour that includes Rugby Art Gallery and the Nottingham Lace Market gallery. The group hope to highlight the low profile position of ceramics and glass within the art community. This situation is jeopardising the provision of education at all levels in these specialised areas.
MAGiCS members hope that the exhibitions will show that ceramics and glass have a significant place in the art world and that the talent in these areas should be encouraged and developed.
