Illumination: The Light of Tradition
Alumni of The Prince's School of Traditional Arts
1 November to 2 February 2014
Opening Hours: Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat: 9am-5pm, Sun 11am-5pm. Extended: Tue & Thu: 9am-9pm
The Prince's School of Traditional Arts in London specialises in teaching, researching and promoting the theory and practice of the arts and crafts of the world's great traditions. The philosophy of the school is that traditional arts and crafts and the constant renewal of skills, which they provide are an integral part of everyday life, not a luxury. The School aims to encourage an awareness that form, pattern and colour are not simply pleasing to the senses, or demonstrations of good design, but are created to embody beauty.
Inspired by the principles of harmony, alumni artists of the school explore the idea of illumination, light and the interaction of contrasts. The exhibition includes a variety of works that are both timely and timeless and continue the debate of the contemporary distinctions made between fine art and craft. The exhibition will showcase intricate explorations of Islamic geometry, gilded miniatures and icons.
