Nav's Gallery Report: RBSA Gallery

The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) is an artist led charity that supports artists and promotes engagement with the visual arts. Their gallery is situated near Birmingham city centre and has exhibitions on 2 floors. The RBSA's craft gallery has established a reputation as a leading Midlands outlet for contemporary craft. It showcases designer makers from the UK, exploring contemporary approaches to traditional craft-making techniques and materials.

The ground floor consists of solo shows as well as a craft gallery. When I first entered the gallery this exquisite handmade jewellery and metal work caught my gaze and pulled me in for a closer look.

I then began to look around the solo shows such as Rob Hand's ceramics and Kevin Line's pencil drawn portraits. Line's portraits reflect his attempts to make and convey emotional connections.

On the 1st and 2nd floor are works from various artists with different approaches to their work such as collaging, oil painting, line drawing, textiles and sculptures etc.
