We’re Here Now – Banbury Creative Arts Show 2015

Our projects were done, all work completed in the sketchbooks, and it was time for our final exhibition at Castle Quay Centre in Banbury. First we had to clean up our shop lot, put boards up, mask the joins with tape, and paint everything white so they’d act as a good, clean backdrop for our work. It was a group effort and we did most of the basic clean-up together, then worked on our areas individually with a lot of supportive advice asked for and given. here are some of the progress shots …

Getting it right …

Having been to a few other exhibitions like the Pick Me Up Festival recently, we had collected ideas for presentation of material and started preparing our spaces. I had a few illustrations apart from my final project triptych, and I put those up once I knew where the piece next to mine would be hanging. I chose bull dog clips as a clean, simple and non-distracting way of presenting the A3 and A4 printed pieces.

Here are some details from the installations of brilliant work by my amazingly talented classmates:
