I’m just back from a fantastic launch event for this years Flickr Nottingham Groups exhibition. Held at the Patchings Art Centre near Calverton, Nottinghamshire the event draws together a fantastic collection of artwork from predominantly Nottinghamshire based photographers, although this year has seen artwork submitted from further afield. The artwork on display covers a multitude of photographic disciplines/genres and shows just how diverse the art of photography can be.
I have three images on display in this years exhibition and was somewhat nervous about the prospect of having my work on public display, these nerves were further fuelled when i saw the quality and standard of other work on display, there is some truly remarkable stuff, if you pay the exhibition a visit you will not be disappointed!
Today’s event saw many of us photographers converge on the Patchings for a special day, organised by the exhibition curator Rob Knight, with special guest talks by the very talented duo Doug Chinnery & Pete Bridgewood. Both gave inspiring and insightful talks aided by slideshows of their fantastic image portfolios. It was also a pleasure to put many faces to the names I see and talk to on social networking sites.
If you have some spare time please consider paying a visit, the exhibition runs until the 27th May, i’d love to hear what you think of mine and the many other images on display. In the meantime here are a few images from today, if your like to see more of my work please visit my website or catch me on Twitter or Facebook, I’d love to hear from you.
