Bright Art and Unique Sculptures

An unusual display of sculptures is on display at a charity base in North Warwickshire.

Local artist Ruth Edwards has made the unique wool and wire structures and has them on show at the Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire’s volunteer run tea room.

Ruth Edwards

Ruth started the sculptures two years ago after completing a fine art degree at Coventry University.

She got into arts and crafts six years ago after going to an art group with a friend. Ruth says “I enjoyed the painting and drawing group, I got better the more I went and through practice”

The Nuneaton based artist then found a niche in sculpting and after experimenting found her own style.

Ruth added “I like the female form of expression, human feeling and emotion and this is the theme I have incorporated into the sculptures on the display in Atherstone”.

They will be in the White Hart Tea Room at the bottom of Long Street in Atherstone until the end of the month.

You can find out more about Ruth and her sculptures by going to her facebook page www.facebook.com/designingart4u.

Alongside the sculptures there is an exhibition of art work from The Polesworth School art students.

The bright and colourful display will also be on the walls until the end of the month.
