The whole point of this blog is to accentuate the great, positive energy there is in Colchester, but if I'm honest I wasn't looking forward to this exhibition - so many dreary paintings! But how wrong I was - here's two local young artists, Anna inspired by her art teacher to enter, and Benjamin studying for a BA in Fine Art at Leeds university. I must admit I generally preferred anything that wasn't a flat rectangle constrained by a frame, but that's the whole point, as the programme says the exhibition challenges you to reflect on why you like or don't like a particular work. Why not get involved via #OpenExhibition ?
|Very sorry I seem to have lost my note of who's excellent work this is - I shall correct that in a future blog!|
