Artists selected for Creative Pathways 2016 Bursary: Adam Grose, Liz & Dale (Elizabeth Caires & Dale Perrett), Sarah Hitchens and Veronia Gayle have been selected to receive Creative Pathways Bursary this year to create new body of work and to showcase them at the temporary workspaces in Black Swan Arts, The Old Brick Workshop, The Emporium and Contains Art during Somerset Open Studios event. Each artist responds to the theme of 'Momentum' in their chosen medium and with their own interpretation, representing the progression of their artistic endeavours.

This year’s programme is made possible by the support of Arts Council England’s Lottery programme and the partnership venues.

Adam’s work explores the role of mapping, inter-cultural exchange, the importance of diversity, aesthetics and their relationship to cultural identity. Through woodcuts, linocuts, etching and monotypes prints, he develops alternative ways of recording a journey. Supported by SAW’s Creative Pathways Bursary, Adam will occupy one of the studios at Contains Art to create a new body of work inspired by the surroundings of the venue, capturing his experiences through collecting soil samples, walking and rambling.
