1SSUE16 – Private View

After much ado – the usual complications and SNAFUs – the 1SSUE16 Private View duly arrived yesterday (Saturday 21 April).

Firstly, and most importantly, I can report that it is a truly excellent show. As my partner commented, it deserves to be in a more prestigious venue. Nonetheless, great work by Richard Cox.

Secondly, the PV was well-attended and deemed a success by one-and-all. I spent an enjoyable couple of hours chatting with Phil Mead (who I’d never met before) and catching up with a few friends: lovely to see Sue Hunt and Glen Manby after what seems ages.

Superb set submitted by Heather Parnell. Some of the best stuff she’s done in ages:

Marega Palser. I really like her work. Reminds me somewhat of early Bryon Gysin:

Carefully-wrought moirés by Tom Martin:

Inevitably!

The show is on at West Wharf Gallery until 26 May. Open 10am – 4:30pm, Thursday-Saturday.

Swansea Open/Glynn Vivian

Today I managed to squeeze in a visit to this year’s Swansea Open Exhibition at the Glynn Vivian gallery, just before it closed. Absolutely delighted to have a film included.
