So as you may or may not know, I’m a weekend volunteer at the RBSA gallery in Birmingham, it’s a lovely intimate gallery with a rich history and friendly atmosphere that I’m proud to be a part of.
As a jewellery student, my work mainly centres around the craft gallery, which, over the last few days has had an exhibition changeover. History Makers has been taken down and Sweet Dreams has been put up!

As part of our internship we were assigned a cabinet and given free reign of the contents and its arrangement. Our first real experience of gallery curation.
This was particularly exciting as we got to showcase our creativity in a real-world situation, we learnt exactly what it takes to set up a gallery show.
That’s our finished case! It’s rather good if I do say so myself!
Sweet Dreamsa really lovely, bright, fun exhibition with a selection of affordable and more highly priced work featuring the talents of Lisa Swerling, Michelle Taylor, Timea Sido, Pauline Edie & Emer O’Sullivan.
The exhibition runs until the 15th of June; more information can be found here
Do come and visit if you’re in the area!
