Trace is a group exhibition featuring work from both Contemporary Craft Makers and Artists that explore the idea of a hint, an outline, an indication, a smidgen... a trace. Showing multiple art forms collectively Trace has invited Craft Makers and Artists from across the UK to submit work to be curated by Context*, a project lead group and Motorcade/FlashParade.
Having received 108 high quality applications from across the UK and international, including Malta and Canada, thirteen artists and makers have been selected to show their work during the exhibition. Those exhibiting are –
Chris Millward, with a lead sculpture;
Alec Stevens with a sculptural installation;
Kevin Walker, with an interactive digital installation;
Wendy MacMillian with two sculptural pieces;
Helen Flanagan and Alex Bailey with a collaborative book;
Joanne Barlow, with a series of ceramic sculptures;
Delmonte, with a series of collaborative paintings;
Katie Edwards with an ink installation;
Sarah King with an installation;
Alex Marsh with a series of photographs;
Claire Weetman with a time based performance;
Freya Kruczenyk with a series of paintings;
and Laura McGarth with two sculptural pieces.
Each exhibitor has a unique style bringing the concept of Trace to life in engaging, interesting, and beautiful ways.
The exhibition is family friendly and fully accessible. During the show there will be a number of activities programmed, including a families workshop on Sunday 29th from 12pm – 2pm, an activities trail around the Bedminster area including Windmill Hill City Farm and Bedminster Library, a pop-up café throughout the Saturday and Sunday, and a vintage and handmade craft market delivered by Bristol Magpies and I selling local craft and goods. Some of the work exhibiting in Trace will be for sale offering affordable art and contemporary craft.
Trace promises to be an interesting juxtaposition between mediums, crafts and skills, artists and makers. It’s creating an environment that celebrates creativity and inspiration by bringing together communities of ‘producers’ with two commonalities – creating and showing work, and the concept – Trace.

Julie McCalden says “Trace presents us with a fantastic opportunity to view the crossovers between contemporary craft and contemporary art. Feeding into each other, influencing, borrowing and appropriating, this exhibition is a timely examination of where craft and visual art meet.”
