Journey of Discovery: MGSO4 Contemporary Art Exhibition.

MGSO4 presents an exhibition of work from emerging and mid-career artists, responding to the theme of discovery.
Artists were selected from an open call for submission, interpreting the theme in any way they see fit. The eclectic exhibition includes 3D work, textile and digital mediums as well as well as contemporary fine art. Artworks will be for sale during this exhibition.

Ben Dray's work is long-listed for this exciting exhibition - 'a series of improbable tables wobbling at the practical / sculptural tipping point.'

"I was born into a family of model makers, painters and photographers, so the boundaries that determined the nature of work were completely elastic. Perhaps as a result, I have never felt that my work needed to be determined by a specific medium, only that making things is part of the value of being.

"The table is an ideal object to explore because as soon as the surface is diverted from the flat it has to be reconsidered. It becomes both plinth and artwork. Because I work in a number of different disciplines, I'm always looking for ways of fusing them to arrive at something I don't recognise." 

From 15th May to 1st July, the public will be able to vote online for their favourite artist in the People's Choice Award. The submitted work for each artist is displayed on this website.
