To kick of this years Saturday addition I have been thinking about inspiration and motivation, and that lead me to start planning what I want to see this year. So firstly a request, please can you post a comment with what exhibitions you are in over the next year, if you don’t tell me, I won’t know,
Here are a few exhibitions I will be visiting:
Artists maquettes at Pallant house Gallery (on until the end of January).
Following the success of the autumn exhibition partnership between Cass Sculpture Foundation and Pallant House Gallery, a number of maquettes by artists such as Anthony Caro, Lynn Chadwick, Marc Quinn and Bill Woodrow will remain on display until the end of Janury 2014. This unique selection of maquettes can be found in Room 17 of the Gallery; offering a rare glimpse into the Foundation’s private archive of over 400 maquettes. These works illustrate the rich and diverse history of the Foundation’s commissioning history, spanning across a period of more than 20 years.

Over fifty years after it exploded onto the art scene, Pop Art Design is the first comprehensive exhibition to explore the exciting exchange of ideas between artists and designers in the Pop age.
