Bird / Bath
Thanks to everybody who came to my exhibition last weekend, I’m very pleased to say that it was a big success with a preview night which included Bristol jazz singer Lady Nade performing, a chance to meet Zonda the black eagle from The International Centre for Birds of Prey and also a slightly unexpected disruption by actors Nik Howden and Nikki Warwick.
Video editor and friend of the company Andy Sutton came along to the hall when Paul was unboxing the prints and setting up as well as on the actual preview night itself, he has very kindly put this footage into this superb film.
Under The Edge Arts’ Chipping Hall in Wotton-under-Edge was set up with swimming pool images on the left (taken at Wotton Pool) and birds of prey on the right (all taken at The International Centre for Birds of Prey)
Here are a few photos from the preview night.
…and a few close ups of the exhibits before the doors opened:
I hope you like the video and pics, thanks to everybody who was involved in the creation of the exhibition.
