Artists For Kettle’s Yard:

St Avertin Syndrome Charity Spin –
Damien Hirst


Late Friday afternoon dash to Kettle’s Yard for a show of work donated by artists and collectors being sold in support of the gallery’s expansion plans. Most of the pieces are taken as the show closes on Sunday (May 8th). The work includes headline pieces by Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor. Also Michael Craig-Martin, Maggi Hambling, Helena Almeida and 2011 Turner Prize nominee Karla Black. The majority of work is from artists who have exhibited at the gallery and from those practicing in the town. The show offers a good cross-section of what Kettle’s Yard stands for. It is a contemporary/modern space (emphasis on contemporary) exhibiting work by international artists. Kettle’s Yard recently won £2.32 million lottery funding grant towards their £5 million target. Here’s a few examples of work on show – for more visit Kettle’s Yard website and their Facebook page.
