One of Staffordshire Universities Senior Lecturers in Fine Art, Stephen Boyed, has successfully bid for £9,000 of Arts Council England Funding.
After The Gold Rush will develop new artworks to be exhibited at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery along with selected artifacts from the Museum Collections Centre.
The exhibition will consist of five lithographic images juxtaposed with images of conservation practice, and images gathered from Anglo Saxon artifacts from the Staffordshire Hoard.
Stephen is now working hard on preparing the exhibition which is expected to be launched late in 2014.

Staff are being invited to the launch event of the ‘And the Doctor said…’ project exhibition. This is a creative research project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of their ‘Connected Communities’ programme.
The launch is taking place on Friday 6th December 2pm-4pm at Burslem School of Art.
It has involved a series of workshops run by creative writers, storytellers and actors, in which people have reflected upon and written about their experiences of healthcare in North Staffordshire.
As well as the wealth of writing from the project, we also have a number of films, photos and recordings, made by Unique Media Production, which will be included in the launch event.
Everyone is welcome to come and celebrate the achievements of the project and the people who have taken part in it.
