Happy New Year, People

From everyone at Grizedale Arts. So much to look forward to - mainly our 10 year celebrations (June 29 2019 - it's us or Glasto, you decide) !

Peter Hodgson: Making, A Life: LAST MONTH at MIMA

Peter's first retrospective exhibition, which started life at the Coniston Institute in 2017 is now open at Middlesbrough Museum of Modern Art (MIMA) till 3rd February 2019.

As this is the last tour date for the exhibition pretty much everything is for sale alongside Peter's usual sought-after retail stock such as spoons, horn brooches and etched glassware.

The exhibition also sees the launch of Peter's first ever monograph, a lavishly illustrated hardcover tome of his works with accompanying essays, available here from our Shop now.

Blowing Our Own Trumpet

Watch a new short film that asks that million dollar question, 'What did Grizedale Arts do for you?'
Thanks to everyone who took part.

Listen in on BBC Radio 4

'The series is an argument for observing our material world better and for understanding the way we make objects, and objects, in turn, make us.'

A while back we contributed to this very interesting chat with architecture collective Assemble, and here at last are the results in radio form: 'The Sympathy of Things'

Available live or on the iPlayer for ages, of course.

Bedside Reading Freebie

Copies of GA director Adam Sutherland's personal and very irreverent Exhibition Guide to his magnum opus, 'The Land We Live In, The Land We Left Behind' are available free by mail from us now.

Drop us a line for your copy, it's a great read for anyone who needs to know how Henry Moore connects to Otis Redding.

another element for the upcoming Ruskin show, this is a carefully observed rock, also made in clay - it does kinda look like one of his rock drawings
