Jewellery Quarter based developer Cedar Homes UK Limited have decided to showcase the work of some of the best artists in the UK at their Grade II Listed Minories development, situated on Warstone Lane in the heart of the historic Jewellery Quarter.
The display of artwork totals 23 individual pieces, with a number of canvas paintings, some specialist prints, a number of bronze sculptures ranging in size through to the ‘Helena’, by artist Len Gifford a life size statue.
The ground floor entrance has a cloakroom where visitors will be able to see how some of the artwork would look as it adorns three of the properties four bedrooms.
The living spaces on the second floor offer a large open-plan living diner alongside a separate kitchen including hand made Mereway Kitchen units and appliances. This space has been used to display ‘Head Study Number One’ a piece by Kieran Crowder an artist with a specific technique that only he has mastered and is shown through this exquisite example. The open plan living diner leads to an outside balcony overlooking the internal courtyard; currently home to the ‘Helena’ sculpture.
However, it is the additional accommodation provided on the top floor where buyers will find a fourth bedroom or study currently housing a print of the world famous micro-sculpture Willard Wigan MBE work of the Obama family. This sits alongside a large Sun Room flooded with natural light where visitors can currently view three stunning canvasses by Nick Andrew before stepping out to the properties roof terrace.
Ross McMillan of Cedar Homes UK Limited says: “When we were approached by UK Fine Arts we felt that as part of a highly creative band of people and businesses in the Jewellery Quarter it was important that we involved ourselves – this exhibition we felt provided the perfect platform. The work of local artists is synonymous with the decadent and exclusive nature of our development. It also enhances the work of our own craftsmen both internally and externally particularly the developments showpiece entrance designed with the help of English Heritage and The Princes Trust.”
The prices of the Townhouses start from £359,950 and the prices of the artwork displayed in the show home are available on request.
