Through the Viewfinder
And What Alice Found There
Two years after first applying to the Brewery Arts Centre, my first solo exhibition 'Deluge' is finally up on the walls and open to the public! This project (as some of you may know) is actually the work I created for my final year of university back in 2016. During my last few months as a student we were all being encouraged by our tutors to get involved in as much activity as possible outside of uni to help prepare us for life after graduating. One of the steps I took to get more involved was applying to exhibit my work in my lovely hometown of Kendal. My first thought was the Brewery - with 'arts centre' literally in its name and numerous exhibitions always on show it seemed like the obvious choice, so I entered my email submission and eagerly awaited a reply.
I am now one step closer to finally being finished with my degree, with the opening of our exhibition taking place over the weekend. After months of hard work, late nights, test printing and planning, the time finally came last week for us to begin hanging our graduate show. From Monday to Friday myself and my fellow students all split down into groups to help hang the work. It was my first time helping with this aspect of an exhibition and it really opened my eyes to all the hard work that goes behind these sort of events! It was all hands on deck to get the work up in time and luckily we all pulled together to help each other out and managed to get everything ready by Friday morning...
