Enclosure: Vessels

This exhibition has a theme of Vessels. 33 artists have been selected from a large number of entries for this show. The vessel is functional and enveloping, it embodies the preservation of materials, the containment of things precious to us, it symbolises fragments of history, reflects the every day, and conversely the revered. A vessel tells a story, from where it came, and its reason for being.These 33 artists reveal their own story and their relationship with what a vessel means to them. This was a selected exhibition and launched on the 12th of December 2011.
