Postcards From The Volcano MASS Sculpture Group Show @ Thames-Side Studios
1st - 8th July 2023
Postcards From The Volcano is another group show hosted by the MASS Sculpture Programme at Thames-Side Studios. We visited the private view of the exhibition last week!
The opening night of the exhibition was in full effect with a great turnout of studio holders and supporters of the artists

This was the end-of-year show of participants who have taken part in the MASS Sculpture programme over the past 10 months. The idea of the programme is to nurture the artists involved by offering in-person critiques of work as this helps to build a sustainable community of peers and mentors.

The sculptures on display invited viewers to have a closer look to work out what everything was formed out of.

Mixed media was a common thread of the art that was on display at the show. Everything from textiles, glass, clay and found objects created a plethora of work to examine.

Artworks were displayed across two spaces on site - the Thames-Side Studio Gallery and at the MASS Sculpture HQ across the road.
Live performances amongst the art was an added touch to the evening as well as some live art workshops that will be running throughout the duration of the show.
If sculpture is your thing, be sure to check it out before it ends on July 8th!
