KEN STRADLING’S EYE – Monnow Valley Arts 3 May – 29 June 2014

KEN STRADLING’S EYE – Modern Design in Britain
Monnow Valley Arts, 3 May – 29 June 1014

20th-century design historian Alan Powers has curated this exhibition of pieces from the Ken Stradling Collection. This is the first exhibition dedicated solely to the collection outside Bristol and celebrates its unique diversity. As Chairman of the Bristol Guild of Applied Arts, Ken has maintained a singular view of the design world for over 60 years. Alan Powers has sought to reveal the breadth of the collection and engage with it quirkiness as well as its focus on quality and discernment. The show is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with an introduction by Alan Powers.

This is an important opportunity to showcase the Ken Stradling Collection which has just opened its Design Study Centre at 48 Park Row in Bristol.
