Yesterday I visited an exhibition ‘Work in Progress’ which is by a group of OCA Students and Tutors based in the South West, at The Old Brick Workshop, near Wellington, Somerset.
Great to see this new initiative come to fruition for OCA Students, it wasn’t something that was happening whilst I was still studying with the OCA, but good to know there are some individuals who are willing to take on the task of organizing and applying for funding, etc. It was nice to see quite a number of familiar names, some that I have met, and others I may have come across on the Student forums. And, as always, great to see the work. A good cross section of work from the various disciplines, and some interesting methods of display encouraging visitor intervention- I got to play with acetates and a lightbox, taking a Polaroid photo of my effort to stick into a little sketchbook with other peoples efforts -good fun. I also enjoyed seeing the experimentation evident in much of the work, like the Seaweed drawings. I hope the exhibition is a success for them with lots of visitors.
