Private View

The Private View of the Ideas Bank Exhibit on Thursday evening went well. Not as many people as we thought might be there, but it was held at a difficult time of evening for people moving round Berkshire in the traffic.
Here is a photo of Jane Glennie discussing her work from EquilARTeral's Zoom series. Hers is the felted work on the left. Mine is next and then Merete's colourful Sunflower pieces. You can read the artist statements and see closer images of our work on the EquilARTeral blog.

We also had the privilege of hearing about the work of 2 of the other artists.Vrinder Atwal and Mo Negm. In the centre of the room there were fabric and felt books with work by Annie Hamilton who has links with Lebanon. It would have been interesting to talk with her because of the textile connections, but she is visiting Lebanon at the moment. Shehnoor Ahmed also has work in the exhibition.

The Ideas Bank 2010 exhibit continues at the Slough Museum in Berkshire throughout February. If you are in the area, do stop by. The museum is open between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm Wed - Sat.
