Exhibition: Feather and Fin

28th September 2021, 9:30am | By Beth Thomas | Event Date : 20211016

From Saturday 16 October – Sunday 31 October the gallery at No 19 Corsham High Street is hosting “Feather and Fin”: An exhibition of sculptures and prints of birds by Celia Smith, wildlife artist and “end of day” glass fish mostly from Murano, Italy.

Celia’s intricate sculptures of birds are full of life and energy. Celia uses wire as other artists use a pencil, collected and gathered wherever she finds it from the side of the road to scrapyards. Celia’s work will be on display together with Willow’s personal collection of nearly 100 “end of day” fish which he has collected during lockdown.

Celia’s love of wire was inspired by a visit to Sophie Ryder’s studio, and although she is a huge fan of the iconic mobile kinetic sculptures of Alexander Calder, she often cites her father’s creative use of baler twine and mending gates and fences on the farm she grew up on as another subconscious influence.

Celia’s sculptures and prints will be available for purchase throughout the exhibition with prints from £150 and sculptures from £550. The glass fish will be on sale with prices from £30 – £100.

Exhibition dates:

Saturday 16 October – Sunday 31 October daily 11am – 6pm
