The exhibition as a whole was a great success and was enjoyed by many generations of the community. Thank you to all the teachers for their enthusiasm and to the Art Department at Guiseley School for running the workshops and helping schools with their ideas, to all the visitors and to Anita for coming to visit us. The last thank you must go to the children for all their hard work. We look forward to next year!
The exhibition was open during the daytime but we also opened late on the Tuesday evening to allow more of the local community to view the art. Anita Bowerman, official artist of the Tour de Yorkshire 2015 gave a presentation about her own recycled art and her use of recycled tools such as feather quills and twigs which she uses to paint with. She gave a demonstration of some of the techniques she uses, her talk was both interesting and informative. She brought along some of her work for us to view and was very impressed by the childrens’ work.
