Think inside the box

The photos are taken at the preview of an exhibition  showing at the  Mary Potter centre in Hyson Green, Nottingham. The exhibition is a culmination of a 10 week art project we worked on with a fantastic group of people. Here is the description of the exhibition written by Frances who commisioned us for the project;

Think inside the box!
An exhibition of artwork created by and designed for people with visual impairments.

Over ten weeks six creative participants; Debbie, Tammie, Trevor, Pushortum, Tom and Derek have been working with Jenny and Maureen from Spiral Arts to create artwork for this exhibition. They have worked with clay, mod-roc, papier-mache, print-making, weaving, poetry, sound recording and aromatherapy.

The mysteries that lie within these boxes represent the participants own personalities in the form of sight, smell, sound and touch. You will enjoy some poetry from Derek and some West African Drumming from Trevor. Just like the artwork in this exhibition, visually impaired sight is unique to each person.

This exhibition encourages the viewer to ‘think outside the box’ when experiencing art as all the work in this exhibition can be enjoyed through alternative senses to sight such as touch, sound and smell. Open the doors to enjoy the multi-sensory experiences that the participants have prepared for you …
