Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

In - Sound Canvas at The Public and The Hive

Sound Canvas was exhibited at The Public in West Bromwich (and is now a touring installation nationally) - it was displayed at the Hive in Shrewsbury between February and April 2014. Sound Canvas has now become a touring exhibition, visiting numerous venues and galleries around the country.

The first commission to be realised, Zoe Partington's Sound Canvas won a Jodi Award on Monday 11th November 2013, a commendation for Innovation. The Public who partnered the commission of Sound Canvas and where it was installed, was sadly closed on 16th November 2013.

Sound Canvas was exhibited at the Hive in Shrewsbury alongside other works from Shropshire artists - including a stunning collection of digital landscapes and photographs, showing the county at it's best

Sounds of Shropshire:

We asked Shropshire artists and writers to send in their digital photos, artwork, poetry and sounds to complement the arrival of Sound Canvas to Shropshire.

We launched an appeal for wonderful digital soundscapes of the sounds of Shropshire, reflecting the local landscape. Some of these sounds were then inputted into Sound Canvas itself - including a cattle auctioneer, ringing church bells and farm animals.
