Yet another group exhibition by 2nd year Fine Art students this time takes me over to Birkenhead. The Wirral Metropolitan College students are showing their work under the title of ‘Re:FILL’ at the Pacific Road Arts Centre.
It finishes on Saturday April 1st. 2006 (10.00 -13.00).
Its quite a good venue, a large space formerly housing old buses and trams, there’s a lot of work from the 18 artists. The whole event has been very well organised and publicised with plenty of information on the artists and the works which always pleases me (feed me – I’m an infoholic).
Some of the sculptures are particularly eye-catching, such as Sylvia Moss’s Seed Pods and Jason Bold’s coat-covered Tricycle. I also liked Mike Cunningham’s gloss paintings of a hammer and pliers and Emma Oliphant’s small collages.
“Re:Fill are a group of emerging artists who’ve self-curated, funded, publicised and organised an exhibition of vibrant, original and challenging art works.
The show promises to offer an eclectic mix of painting, sculpture, installation, print, photography and site-specific works that will challenge, entertain and most of all publicise the emerging artists of tomorrow.
Show participants: Carol Allen, Deborah Banks, Jason Bold, Stacy Buckenham, Mike Cunningham, John Dorning, Chris Edwards, Jane Finnerty, Diane Fraser Bell, Peter Frodin, Christopher Hanson, Debra Hamer, Jenny Hulme, Sylvia Moss, Emma Oliphant, Neil Partington, Robyn Woolston and Ian Yell”
