The show goes up:

It’s been a busy time prepping for the show – lots of painting to be done, of walls, plinths and display cases. We also created a backdrop for our newly painted plinths using fireproofed fabric and polished the plinth lids until they sparkled! Thanks to all the artists who came and helped, it was a fun two days filled with anticipation.

Nearly there – more painting of plinths by Phillipa, Jo and Anna-Louise

And then it was time for the work to be arranged and hung by our curator “Simon the Framer”, who arranged the many differing artworks into a wonderful feast for the eyes.
