25 February – 6 May 2011

The Capstone Gallery at Liverpool Hope University is proud to present Contemporary British Silversmiths European touring exhibition ‘SIDE x SIDE – EDGE > EDGE’. The exhibition shows how 75 silversmiths responded to one theme; each in their own unique way.

First shown in Finland in 2009 alongside the Silver Trust ‘Downing Street Collection’, the exhibition features 75 new pieces of silverware made full and graduate members of Contemporary British Silversmiths, the Finnish Silversmiths Association and staff and students of the Lahti University of Applied Sciences. Silver for the collection was generously sponsored by Kultakeskus Oy with additional funding from the Goldsmiths’ Company.

Contemporary British Silversmiths was launched in 1996 with the aim of promoting the art and craft of silversmithing. Their exhibitions have travelled throughout the UK, and to Holland, Germany, Denmark, Taipei, USA and most recently Finland.
