Xceptional Designs have been awarded a new public art commission for Canwick Village.
artsNK worked with Canwick Village Hall committee and residents to select the artists following a call for proposals earlier in the summer. Xceptional Designs will work with village residents to create an appropriate enhancement for the front of the recently refurbished village hall. The selection committee were impressed by Xceptional Designs proposals to consult with the village, and reflect what makes it special and distinctive to those who live there. The design will involve metal and perspex panels on railings at the front of the village hall, elements on the walls of the building, as well as one or two 3D sculptures.
Artists Pete Rogers and Alex Hallowes who form Xceptional Designs stated:
‘We are really excited to have been given this commission. We are looking forward to getting to know the Canwick community, and to working with them for ideas. The making workshops, which will probably be held in the autumn or early spring, will give local people the chance to come and put their own mark on the artwork – it really will be theirs because they have helped to make it!’
The artwork will be completed in Spring 2015. For more information about Xceptional Designs visit their website www.xceptionaldesigns.moonfruit.com
