And finally, it’s all over. In all cases, a show comes down far quicker than it goes up. Tim Sandys (http://www.timsandys.com/) literally pulled his work from the walls:
Though some of the FA and APCP lot had taken their shows down on the Sunday afternoon (the last day of the show being open), I abandoned mine in favour of the beach for a day or two. Aptly, one might say, the weather was miserable when I came to remove all my pieces and clear all my things out of printmaking.
Chris seemed to have excellent fun ripping the scrim from the ceiling. Once thrown in a heap on the floor, it had a similar allure to a pile of freshly raked autumn leaves. We could have predicted what was to ensue…
Done and dusted. Now I look forward to showing with the Compass Gallery and the Six Foot Gallery in Glasgow in July, along with a few other people from DJCAD. I think that makes it extra special; nothing like showing with friends!
I should also mention that I have been awarded the Bernard Cooper Memorial Prize! I haven’t found out much about the prize, other than this: “BERNARD COOPER MEMORIAL PRIZE – Awarded annually to the final year student who has produced the best portfolio of work in that year.”
I was surprised, but it is a privilege and I am very happy.
