Exhibition Statement

Born in 1872, Gilbert Bayes was a sculptor whose work spanned the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modernism. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1889, and continued to work up to his death in 1953. His work ranged in scale from medals, trophies and designs for Royal Doulton to architectural sculpture, ornamental work and statues. He served as the President of the Royal Society of Sculptors from 1939 to 1944. The award which bears his name supports early career sculptors of any age or nationality, with or without formal training and working in any style of media. The prestigious prize is designed to support these artists’ transition into professional practice, raise their profiles and provide them with invaluable professional development opportunities.

First shown at Cromwell Place in London, CASC Gallery and the University of Chester Department of Art & Design are pleased to collaborate with the Royal Society of Sculptors in bringing this exhibition to the North-West.
