A busy weekend taking in submissions for the 2015 Open exhibition which we are running in conjunction with Lancashire Artists Network. This is our 4th year at Oxheys and the 4th time we have run a summer open exhibition – it was fantastic to see so many artists coming back with submissions who have exhibited with us in the past and we really appreciate their support.
It was also lovely to welcome so many new faces however, lots of artists who we have never previously met or seen their work. This will make a lovely mix of work for this show and it is also rewarding to help so many artists get their work out in front of an audience.
Lots of really great work has been submitted which will make the selection process really tough. As always, we try to ensure that everybody who submits gets at least one piece of work in the show so we know it is going to be a great one!
Alongside the submissions, some wonderful volunteers were helping to repaint the project space and fit some more hanging rails – we are so grateful for their help and really appreciate them giving up their time. We’ve a bit more cleaning and painting to do and a few more rails to put up them we’ll be able to start hanging the show.
There will also be a small exhibition upstairs in our meeting room running alongside the Open exhibition. The artist delivered the work yesterday and we are really excited about that, too.
It is going to be a great show – do make sure you attend the Private View on June 25th from 6-8pm – and please tell your friends, share and tweet. See you there!
