AN EXHIBITION is bringing together artists and makers of African/Caribbean heritage to showcase their work, not previously seen in Salisbury.

Diaspora runs until December 19 at Salisbury Arts Centre.

Wiltshire Creative artist in residence Mirka Golden-Hann said, “This exhibition was originally cancelled due to the Covid lockdown and we are very happy to be able to realise it now.”

The artists exhibiting include ceramic vessels by The Great Pottery Throw Down kiln man Rich Miller whose work is inspired by his own tile production and by British Colonialism.

Other potters in the exhibition are the London-based father and daughter Chris Bramble and Freya Bramble-Carter who combine their shared love of African culture and the connection to the natural world. Barbados-born potter Ronaldo Wiltshire will be exhibiting his ceramic masks.

The exhibition also includes prints by Ade Adesina, who creates large-scale linocuts and etchings. Having grown up in Nigeria, Adesina has a fascination with how the human footprint is affecting our planet. Other exhibits include jewellery, watercolours and textiles.
