Was really pleased to have my piece 'Sasha' selected for the Ragley Gallery Open. I never really had much success with open exhibitions in the past so I gave up wasting money & time applying for them. This one however seemed to be a good fit as the exhibition theme is Spirit of Place, so that kind of ties in neatly with the work from that series (Et in Arcadia Ego).
"Successful entries to the Ragley Open Art Competition have been curated into a diverse pool of contemporary art that responses to the theme Spirit of Place.
All works exhibited refer to the tangible physical aspects of place, (monuments, boundaries, rivers, woods, architectural style, rural crafts styles, pathways, views, and so on); to the invisible weave of culture (stories, art, memories, beliefs, histories, etc.) and to the presence of people (the presence of relatives, friends, kindred spirits, and the like)." - Dawn Harris, Artist in Residence, Ragley Hall
Exhibition Opens: 20th August - 7th September 2014
Wednesday - Sunday: 11am - 4pm
