Shows over – the show goes on

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

2016_shire_hall_posterThe other day the exhibition I’ve worked towards for at least 18 months came to an end. All except the few sold items had to be carefully packed and transported back to my studio. Once that would have been a bit of an anti-climax. Now, fortunately the show goes on – online. The concept of the collection that emerged so tentatively, as each canvas came into being and added its unique facet to the whole, is still there. You can see what I mean at (http://hendersonsmith.co.uk/at_work_at_home_installation_shots.html ).

The concept of this particular show was something that embraced and was informed by my experience of having to move out of my home for a few months earlier this year. You can read about that at http://hendersonsmith.co.uk/blog/?p=556 which was also published in a booklet about the exhibition.

I’ve documented previous exhibitions in a similar way, sometimes with a virtual tour. All can be accessed through the exhibitions page link above.

It can even be the case that a collection gets added to after the event of the exhibition itself. This continues to be the case with the Ten Years of Lafrowda Paintings show that happened in 2012. That’s because four additional paintings so far have been inspired by subsequent versions of the festival. Long may that continue!

And so it goes on ….
