NEW show opens in Roof Gallery at NCCD

Intriguing ceramics exhibition combined with digital sounds and projections
SLEAFORD, England - Sept. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- A new show will open in the Roof Gallery at The National Centre for Craft & Design right here in Sleaford.  The show is free and everyone is welcome to come and see it any day including Sunday between 10am and 5pm.

In fact, you can be the first to see it at the preview night this Friday, 6 September.  Come along between 6pm and 8pm to see the show, talk to the artist and have some refreshments.

Alexis Rago designs and makes amazing large ceramic structures.  He starts with simple units, which he builds up into complex, intricately textured objects that often to look too delicate to last.  He lets you decide what they are: is it a fantastic fossil, an ivory carving or some kind of ritualistic object?

For the first time, Rago has combined his ceramics structures with other media such as digital sound and projected imagery.  This means the show is like an all-round sensory experience.

The show is going on tour to Farnham in January and Alexis will also be taking part in the Frequency Digital Festival, which takes place in Lincoln from 18 to 25 October.

If you’d like to try out ceramics for yourself, Alexis is leading workshops for young people on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 October, and for adults on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November.

There’s also going to be bit of a debate going on at the NCCD on Tuesday 22 November called “The Artist and the Scientist – How similar are they?”  Come along if you have an opinion about that!
