18 November – 23 December, 2006
Opening Friday 17 November, 6-8pm.
Every year Peacock visual arts gives local, national and international artists the opportunity to submit artworks for the always popular Christmas exhibition. Until this year, the standard size of the works would be A5. 2006 sees a ‘down-sizing’ of the works to A6 – postcard size!
For those of you who are new to the project: its aim is to demonstrate the versatility and talent of local, national and international artists. The 6-week exhibition always attracts many visitors, so is a good opportunity to get your work seen.
The exhibition shows work by new talent alongside ‘big names’. Amongst the artists showing their small-scale work this year are Michael Visocchi, Barbara Rae, David Bellingham, Sadie Main, Colin Kirkpatrick and David Blyth, who have been working on a series of new prints with Peacock’s printmakers.
Through ‘Own Art’ you can buy a work of contemporary art at Peacock visual arts, interest free. You can borrow up to £2,000 or as little as £100, and pay back the loan over ten months.
Roddy Phillips, Press & Journal, says about the show: “A fascinating and thoroughly lively show as diverse as it is witty and profound (…) Highly recommended for original Christmas presents, even if it’s for yourself…”
