What: Inside Out at Oswestry Show

When: Saturday, August 4th

The Inside Out Art Group has been offered some exhibition space at this year’s Oswestry Show, thanks to Louise Hudson at D.R.E. & Co. Accountants, Lower Brook St., Oswestry. We will be setting up a small selection of works, a couple of leaflet/postcard stands plus a video monitor with a slideshow next to their marquee.

This is a great opportunity for people to publicise their work. We’ve got a selection of (weatherproof) work ready, so all we need now from people is postcards and leaflets to put in the racks, plus images of your work to put in the slideshow. Slideshow images should be jpgs at least 1080 x 800 pixels (higher resolution welcome) of your work, of sketches, or of you at work. Please send no more than 10 images, as we want to give everyone a chance to have something in the slideshow. I need to have the images by July 25th – that gives you two weeks to make your selection and email them to me.

You can email the images to me or Diana, or leave a CD or memory stick at my studio in the Cambrian Studios Building. You can also drop off leaflets, postcards and flyers there as well, or bring them down to Llanarmon.

We’re also going to be holding a sketching day during the show on Saturday. Just turn up at the showgrounds (there’s a £3 entrance fee), find the Inside Out stall (look for the orange and blue balloons) and come and get an Inside Out Artists badge – this will entitle you to free tea and cake all day long (I’m kidding – it’s just to help publicise the group and get people heading over to our display!) I’ll have my camera attached to our video slideshow setup, so if you’re doing sketching throughout the day, I can take photographs of your drawings and put them immediately into the slideshow.

Look forward to seeing you all at the show!
