Slideshow Shim

Artist Rebecca Newnham discusses her exhibition Facets.

Facets is an exhibition of 30 glass bowls created by sculptor Rebecca Newnham in direct response to the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum and its collection. The bowls will be displayed on the existing plate racks of the Dining Room, the Morning Room and the Conservatory.  The individual pieces are unique and together form a cohesive body of work.

The project considers the historical origins of the house and of the owners Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes’ role in the early establishment of Bournemouth. The bowls seek to reflect on the rich architectural and interior detail of the house and the myriad paintings and exotic artefacts collected by the couple during their travels across the world.
