The response to The Thread of Life has been amazing, and as such I have received around 80 pieces of work so far, many of which have interesting ideas, concepts and stories behind them. Unfortunately, because of the amount of work, and the limitations of the space available to me at Bank Street Arts, I have been unable to hang the exhibition as I had intended. For this reason I decided to use this first exhibition as an interim exhibition, to show the work as it currently stands, before being exhibited as intended, in a gallery space further down the line. My own work has not yet had the long hanging gold threads added as intended, because I didn’t want to obscure it and the other work around it as it currently hangs. However, this will be completed in time for the first formal showing of the exhibition, which is set to be at Cromford Mills from 2nd April 2016, where there will also be other events surrounding the exhibition (please check events section of my website for more information).
However, this interim exhibition has been a great opportunity to get all of the work put together. I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have contributed, and I hope will may be able to come along to the next showing of the exhibition.
If anyone would still like to get involved in the exhibition in time for the next showing of the work, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s a look at the work currently at Bank Street Arts until the end of November.
