From graduate makers to established artists Ilkley's Manor House hosts it's annual contemporary craft exhibition - Presence, featuring Yorkshire's finest crafting talent. For the first time the show's curators have included crafts from Bradford Museums and Galleries permanent collections giving us a wonderfully eclectic mix of images to play with for the design! The finished Presence design was used across exhibition panels, invites and signage.
Presence, Ilkley Manor House 26 Nov - 22 January 2012
Here at Out of the Blue we were super excited when we received the brief to design invites and posters for David Hockney's Bigger Trees near Warter. This remarkable fifty-panel painting, created using traditional techniques and new technology is the largest painting David Hockney has ever produced.
Shown as part of Art in Yorkshire and supported by Tate, this is a year long celebration of the visual arts in 19 galleries throughout Yorkshire. Works from Tate's collection of historic, modern and contemporary art will be showcased through a compelling programme of exhibitions and events.
