Last few days for Sock Gallery open exhibition – Loughborough

Over 345 pieces were submitted into this years Sock Gallery open exhibition, the judges then selected 179 to be hung in the gallery.
Here is my entry the judges chose to hang in this years exhibition, a photograph on canvas titled “Dandelion Stars”

It doesn’t seem 5 minutes let alone 4 weeks since I was invited to the preview evening to proudly see my selected entry hanging alongside all the other chosen works of art.

There’s such a fantastic variety on show this year, pencil & ink drawings, pastel, oils, photography, pieces of artwork painted on a variety of mediums from canvas to wood to cardboard boxes. I particularly like the collages that incorporate different textures as seen in this image depicting Lime tree avenue at Calke Abbey by artist Tracey Lamb who used watercolours recycled paper and stitching (apologies for reflection on image I only did some quick snaps with my compact camera)
