‘BRINK’ – Exhibition showcasing recent graduates within Sheffield’s visual arts community opens at SIA
The Fine Art Bridge Scheme (FABS) supports early career artists to nurture new talent in Sheffield. FABS is a mentoring and residency scheme specifically aimed at supporting recent graduates, allowing them to work closely with local arts organisations to build their experience and confidence within Sheffield’s visual arts community.
This exhibition showcases the work of the 2017-18 FABS artists: Alex Mooney and Hannah Lamb are working with Bloc Projects and have been exploring a range of arts activities including gallery education programmes, curation, project management, setting up arts organisations and working within the voluntary sector.
Alex Phillips and Mattie Pugh are hosted by Site Gallery who are supporting the artists to explore how they can work in different communities, in diverse sites, and in unusual spaces through their public outreach activities such as ‘The Society of Explorers’ and ‘On the Road’ programmes.
FABS forms part of Making Ways, a new programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.
