Geoff Armitage, photographer – New exhibition at The Heritage Centre

Just one colour

This exhibition was inspired by the image above when I realised it only has one colour – that assumes that you agree with me that that black, white and shades of grey are not colours from the spectrum.

I like to set myself a project and 2 years ago this became the latest and most difficult yet!!

None of the images have been photoshopped as I do not use it; mainly because it is too costly and I do not understand its terminology.

I hope you find this interesting – and please, put your thoughts in the book.

Exhibition runs from 3rd until 28th July

At the 

OSWESTRY VISITOR AND EXHIBITION CENTRE

A batik wax pot and tjanting tools being sold by Holly Hayward.They hark back to my textile/demonstrating days.

These are very good quality, expensive to buy and an absolute bargain at £30 the lot for someone working in that medium ( please share with anyone who works with batik)

Diversity in the Frame!

MIP poster 2018-3

 

As soon as you put one photograph beside another, you change the effect – and even the story – of both of them. In this show each frame contains an exhibition in miniature: three or more photographs have been put together in a sequence or arrangement in order to create a different effect than they would separately.

We hope you enjoy our experiments.

This Friday, June 1st at the Willow Gallery!

Heritage Comics exhibition at Qube, Oswestry!

Fabulous exhibition at Qube of John Swogger’s heritage comics – they look great enlarged as well as great as postcards and you can choose a lovely badge with your choice of detail. I bought a lovely one with a super drawing of a man taking a photo with his camera.
