We would like to thank every artist who submitted work to our very first Open exhibition at Oxheys Mill Studios, for their support. The quality of work was amazing and we were thrilled with the number of submissions received, which exceeded our expectations. It was great to be able to open our doors, albeit briefly, to receive the work and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with all the artists. The feedback received was really encouraging and we have had some real interest shown.
We spent another enjoyable day last week reviewing all of the work that came in and planning the installation, then spent the whole of Saturday actually installing it. We were joined by local artist Evelyn Rose who after creating her own installation in response to the project space environment, stayed and spent the rest of the day with us helping with making brews and providing another set of eyes to help ensure things were hung straight.
We had a wonderful time deciding where and how to show all of the work and really enjoyed getting it all displayed – we certainly got to know the space intimately and it was thanks to our fettler, Carl who also joined us, that we were able to reach places that even Heineken would have had trouble with.
Is this the best exhibition in the world? Well, we have a real treat in store for those who come to the preview on Thursday 11th August.
We hope to see you there!
