Willow weaving with silver wire - Rachel Carter
Well, after surviving a hen weekend in Chester and living to tell the tale, I have finished off my rather busy weekend with a visit to the Beetroot Tree Gallery in Draycott, as it was out first Creative 10 exhibition preview. In The Frame is based on the premise that the ten artists in the group each exhibit ten small 'taster' pieces of their work in 15x15cm magnetic box frames, with one larger signature piece on display also. It looks great, what a fab way to start the year!!
We entered a competition last year to win a two week exhibition at the Gallery and we were the proud winners! Today was a real celebration of our work, the end of our Nottinghamshire Creative Mentorship course that brought us all together in the first place, and also the fact that we have made a fantastic team effort and put on our first show together. Long may this continue. The gallery space is in a gorgeous listed barn in the village of Draycott and our work looked great in this setting. As you can see from the pictures I have included some pictures of the whole things and also some of the individual pieces. The final effect was very pleasing, I hope you get the chance to visit, you have until next Sunday if you would like to, or watch this space for our next one!!
