Today I was able to finally take my 12 images to the gallery in preparation of the forthcoming exhibition starting this weekend.
The weeks leading upto today have been busy with printing, mounting and framing the images, but most importantly I have been able to contact some of the horse owners/handlers who are now able to attend the opening evening on monday 5th August at 6pm.
I feel very lucky to have been chosen to exhibit my work at Oriel Q as an undergraduate and wish to thank everybody who has supported me and special thanks to Lynne Crompton the Gallery manager for giving me the opportunity to showcase my work – thank you.
David Alston – Arts Director for Arts Council of Wales will also be in attendance from Cardiff on the evening.
