The Feathered Aviator installation at New Brewery Arts Cirencester

Installation in the New Brewery Arts gallery in Cirencester Sat 5 July - Sun 7 September 2014 During the Great War, man-made communication systems were crude and unreliable; it was the pigeon on which they depended. In this reflective exhibition, we commemorate the First World War through the medium of wire sculpture using the role of the homing bird – unearthing their stories and keeping them alive after 100 years. The journey of a carrier pigeon is one of strength, durability and endurance; a compact flying machine perfectly adapted to the job of finding its way home. Celia Smith's deceptively delicate wire sculptures perfectly encapsulate the bird's dual qualities of fragility and strength, from proud individuals, perfectly balanced and assured, to flocks of birds in joyous flight. The installation includes flocks of wire birds made by pupils from five local schools and families from the Duke of Gloucester Army Barracks, who were encouraged by our outreach team to think about the impact of conflict and their response to it. Each bird carries a special message written by a participant. The Feathered Aviator is part of the wider Cirencester Commemorates, with a full programme of events taking place throughout 2014. The Feathered Aviator and Cirencester Commemorates are supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and were created to bring the events of the First World War, and the effects the war had on Cirencester, to life - Lest We Forget. Music for the exhibition courtesy of Annie, filming by Cora. Curated by Hannah, Heather and the members of the New Brewery Arts Creative Pathway.

Sophie Ryder's sculpture Paintpots installed at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester

New Brewery Arts, in collaboration with Wetpaint Gallery and Wildmoor Properties, arranged for Sophie Ryder's fantastic sculpture, entitled 'Paintpots', to be installed outside New Brewery Arts in Brewery Court, Cirencester, for 12 months from June 2014. 'Paintpots' is an eight foot bronze featuring a group of Sophie's famous mystical creatures or 'Lady-Hares' with three Lurcher dogs. Brewery Court was previously home to another of Sophie's sculptures, 'Conversation'. Ali Russell from New Brewery Arts said "The benefits of public art are numerous. It has the power to energize our public spaces, arouse our thinking and transform the places where we live, work and play into more welcoming and beautiful environments that invite interaction."
