Portal 2015, an exhibition of graduate applied arts incorporating 'One Year On', will open at Llantarnum Grange Arts Centre in August.

The lovely folk at Llantarnum Grange Arts Centre have travelled the UK to select the cream of this year s graduates in the applied arts, searching for those who are pushing the boundaries of applied art whilst maintaining and developing the traditions of their craft. These are the makers and designers destined to lead and shape the next generation of applied artists.

The exhibition will feature the work of Shannon Bartlett-Smith, Klara Capouskova, Laura Coles, Julie Heaton, Leah Jensen, Rhian Wyn Jones, Chrisoula Konstantakou, Rachel Lovatt, Victoria Radcliffe and Christian Vaughan Jones.

This year, LGAC have also decided to expand theOne Year On section of the exhibition featuring a number of handpicked graduates from 2014, to show how their work has evolved and progressed since they finished their degree courses.

Portal 2015 and 'One Year On' runs from 8 Augustto 17 October 2015 at Llantarnum Grange Arts Centre
