Emily Jane Bruce: Carnival - Rising Stars 2018: One Year On

2 March to 13 April 2019

Emily Jane Bruce: Carnival - Rising Stars 2018: One Year On

Emily Jane Bruce is the winner of the prestigious Rising Stars 2018 prize and we are delighted to welcome her back for her One Year On exhibition. Rising Stars is a platform for the most exciting new crafts by emerging makers from crafts and applied arts programmes across the UK.

Emily Jane creates mixed media soft sculptures and traditional illustrations. Emily's work stems from her love of antique toys, haberdashery and lettering; items with qualities of the uncanny and the priceless period of childhood nostalgia.

Carnival, Emily's first solo show, is a weirdly wonderful celebration of all things fantastical, bringing to life characters and creatures from the secret world of the circus and bygone showman's era. Emily's whimsical creations invite you to relive the aged splendour of the big top tent through her unique style and lovingly made details.

Rising Stars is organised by the New Ashgate Gallery and supported by the Billmeir Charitable Trust. We work in partnership with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.

Argent & Sable

Welcome to the creations of Dan and Dusty, the founders, makers and creators of Argent and Sable Signs. They design and create Illuminated Circus Lights, Signs, Stars & Letters. All of their work is made using traditional craft techniques, authentic circus lights, hand-painted fonts and finished with an ageing process that creates the bespoke pieces of light art.

Dan and Dusty take inspiration from our love of old fairgrounds, circus' and cabaret and combine this with their passion for words, interior design, colour and vintage fonts intertwined with a belief in making and designing something that communicates and resonates with people.

Argent and Sable creates marvellous, eccentric, eclectic, circus inspired signs which are lovingly put together by hand and illuminated with authentic circus lights in their studio in the Fine City of Norwich using carefully sourced reclaimed wood where each piece is chosen for its unique patina and character.
