|BEAT -has been an effective shop window on the project|
So yesterday as well as taking back our items (a framed Photograph for me and two works from John) - we're looking at the next stage of our part in the project.
I think the two of us have hit the jackpot with our venue - not only is it a great 'space' (as they say) but we've got an excellent facilitator gently guiding us and offering much needed support and input.
|It's big enough and there's a lift too.|
|A booth type studio perhaps|
The massively enthusiastic OPEN Ealing has a café (Orchard Café opening very soon)and above this is their dedicated location for lectures and classes we're going to be exhibiting in there across two weekends in September.
There's no picture rail but I can suspend prints on 'lines' and there are easels to show some framed photographic prints - John will have some stands and low tables for his works.
What I took from our preliminary meeting and survey was that the theme for BEAT as whole is a working 'Studio' and we should bring some of that into what we put together - I'm percolating something of a 'Darkroom' idea along with something where I can take photo's of those visiting and upload to a website and provide a 'Postcard' type print for them - this might be too ambitious but it feels realisable at this stage.
I'm also going to look at the idea of using 'back projection' to make a showpiece of Red for 'out of hours'.
What does this logo mean for goodness sake?
