I’ve just received great news in a letter from the Bury St Edmunds Art Gallery, here in Suffolk, UK – my “Lion’s Stare” print has been selected from artists’ 239 submissions to be one of the pieces of work to appear in the Suffolk Showcase 2010 exhibition!
Each year, work is selected by a panel of independent judges who are, this year, Jenny Brownrigg (Director of Exhibitions at Glasgow School of Art) and Michael Brennand-Wood (Artist-Maker based at Wysing Arts) and is an opportunity open to all Suffolk-based artists and makers to show work in an exhibition open to the public.
The exhibition is on from Saturday 10th July to Saturday 28th August 2010 at the Bury St Edmunds Art Gallery, Market Cross, Cornhill, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK, IP33 1BT. Their website is: http://www.burystedmundsartgallery.org/
From the “Suffolk Tourist Guide” website: “The Bury St Edmunds Art Gallery (left) is situated in the historic Market Cross, a fine Grade I listed building restored in the Georgian period, with foundations dating back to 1583. Renovated by the celebrated architect Robert Adam in the late 18th century, it became a theatre for the townspeople. The Art Gallery took up residence in 1972. The building retains its high ceilings, Georgian façade, elegant arched windows and is lit by magnificent Venetian crystal chandeliers.
The Gallery is now a regional centre for contemporary art and craft. In addition to a programme of nationally important and regional exhibitions, it is a centre for workshops, educational activities and other events”.
