Sculpture Trail at Saltaire Festival Open Gardens


We are looking for artists working in any 3D medium suitable for external display to show work in one of around twelve small garden spaces.
This two-day event is a a major element of the Festival Opening Weekend
Because of the nature of the Grade II listed architecture in the village, most spaces are small - many no more than enclosed back-yards, so the event is suitable for sculptural ceramics and glass as well as sculpture.  
Work may be for sale, and the footfall for the event is very good.
There is a small fee to selected artists of £20 to contribute to publicity and administration costs for this volunteer-run event, but no commission is taken on sales.

Dreams, Dice and Divination: Islamic Art and the Supernatural




York Islamic Art Circle

Tuesday 31st January 2017


Bowland Auditorium (University of York)

You can get your free ticket at

Dream manuals, talismanic shirts, horoscopic charts and magico-medicinal bowls testify to the changing roles of divinatory practices within Islamic traditions from the medieval period to the present day. Despite critical attitudes and bans, in fact, various techniques to foretell the future and influence daily events were used by elites and ordinary people alike in order to address all sort of concerns. Dreams, Dice and Divination: Islamic Art and the Supernatural will explore the themes and debates surrounding these common yet controversial arts through the lens of art and material culture.

Francesa Leoni is the Yousef Jamrel curator of Islamic Art at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Francesa is the curator of their current exhibition "Power and Protection:IslamicArt and the Supernatural" showing until 20th January 2017.
