We all submitted photographs of our art pieces. The short-listed entries are now on show at the Bishop Otter Gallery, Bishop Otter University, Chichester, West Sussex. The great thing about this exhibition is that each piece of work is available to be touched by everyone.
This was my piece that may look familiar as I posted it in January. It is a dream to touch with crunchy sky, a silkiest, smooth undulating wavy velvet sea, and sandy bumpy, metal shore with beads galore. It is the sort of art that most exhibitions would put a sign up to say 'don't touch' but on this occasion you could have touched it til your hearts content.
The operative words being 'could have', it wasn't chosen. Oh Well that's life, now lets move on!
The judges were a Sculptor, the curator at Tate Modern and an Artist and Disability Trainer. The prize for the winner was £3000.
Well of course I was still going along to the exhibition to see what was chosen. How could I not resist. Here are a few. This is all hand made felted pea pods. I love this one.
This sculpture/ panel of a figure made of hay and plaster was great, my 2nd favourite.
A chair with loads of little toys stuck on...... not quite so impressed.
A load of blown up rubber gloves ????There was also a chair with gloves filled with water hanging below. Would probably be a big hit with the kids.
and this one went down well with my daughter. There were other items that were not worth a photograph, like the pile of stones wrapped in wool fabrics and the pile of wooden bricks (just like baby building blocks)I think the man from the Tate museum would probably like it though, well its Art isn't it?
