The opening of the P.O.V exhibition at Project 78 Gallery in St Leonards was a great success with a steady flow of visitors all evening. A selection of dusters from the collection took centre stage on a plinth with an invitation to touch and explore them (with gloves provided to keep them clean). It was really interesting to see the different ways that people explored them – some folding them like the pages of a book and others smoothing them into a neat pile.
The exhibition runs until the 17th April with the gallery is open from Wednesday until Saturday.
Thank you to everyone who came along to the opening on Friday afternoon. It was lovely to meet some new people who are interested in the project and to see some familiar faces too. As you can see I made a VERY yellow duster cake!
The show is up until the 14th April during at the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade Campus .
Friday 24th March will see the opening of the latest duster exhibition, featuring almost all of the dusters from the growing collection, (a selected few having been loaned to the Project 78 Gallery in St Leonards for the P.O.V exhibition at the same time). The dusters will hang in the foyer of the Sallis Benny theatre, just outside the cafe, at the University’s Grand Parade site until Thursday 17th April. Exhibition information can be found here and here.
You are invited to join me for tea and cake at 3pm on Friday 24th March in the space outside the cafe. I hope to see as many of you as possible. It will be exciting to see the whole collection out in all it’s yellow glory again!
Duster contributions received by Monday 20th March can also join this exhibition. Contact Us for submission details.
Work in progress from Karen Morgan – a Momento Mori with a message about the futility of housework…
…and a completed piece from Amanda Bright, exploring the notion of home acting as a domestic anchor.
Very excited to announce that a selection of new dusters from this project will be included in this exhibition at the Project 78 Gallery in St Leonards, near Hastings. The organisers have selected about 15 dusters from the collection for this unique exhibition.
There is also another exhibition planned, which will include the whole collection, in March at the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade site. Details to follow.
This is my work in progress, exploring collage as a new means of embellishing the dusters following the recent workshop at the University of Brighton. Nearly completed, just need to find the right words to finish it off…
I’m thinking it should say: Why do you still persist in making… an object out of me?
