Patron Andrew Logan puts out call for volunteers to model his jewellery at The Big Art Show

The Big Art Show, an annual Shropshire based event successfully launched in 2014, is looking for volunteers to help model jewellery made by patron and renowned artist Andrew Logan.

Held at the Greenhous West Mid Showground in Shrewsbury over the first weekend in July (3rd, 4th and 5th) The Big Art Show aims to provide a showcase for a wide diversity of artists using a range of formats and presentation through paint, sculpture, jewellery, glass, ceramics, furniture design, photography and performance art. The event, aimed at the whole family, includes over 140 exhibitors, workshops and talks given by the artists, a real bar, eateries and live music.

Andrew Logan is still one of Britain’s principal sculptors and his art and jewellery can be found in public and private collections all over the world. In 1991 he established a museum dedicated to his own work located in the village of Berriew, near Welshpool. His jewellery has been described as ‘addictive’ by Marie Christopher, wife of former US Secretary of State Warren Christopher.

Running for approximately 30 minutes, Logan’s jewellery show will take place in the showground pavilion during Saturday afternoon. Receiving full support and instruction from Andrew, volunteers and a friend or partner will be entitled to free entry into The Big Art Show. Talking about his requirements Andrew Logan said: “I am looking for 20 local people of all ages. However, it is important that they do not have any modelling experience.  I would much prefer them to wear the jewellery naturally - a catwalk style performance is not required.”

For more information or to register an interest, potential model volunteers should ring 01694 771446 or send a picture and contact by email to: [email protected]. Closing date is Friday 19th June and successful applicants will be notified the following week.
