Initially I wanted to photograph artists with their work at the Collective Open Art Exhibition in the main gallery at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery to include them in the Christmas edition of the Friends' Journal. For various reasons it wasn't possible to include all the photographs, they do make an interesting record of the exhibition, so I'm going show the photos in this blog post. If anyone else hasn't been included and would like to be, please contact me before Saturday 5 January at 4.30pm. I will be in the gallery from 11.00am -1.00pm next Saturday if it's convenient for you to come in then.
I've added them in the order in which I took them.
Caroline Day with her parents in front of her David Austin rose painting.
Carol Burns, it's acrylic paint and gold leaf.
Terry Humphries with his painting
Sholeh Jafari with her painting. I realise I must visit the museum again on Wednesday and obtain names for these paintings.
Joseph Wright with two of his photographs
