A very quick message to say a "BIG THANK YOU!!" to everyone who came tonight from Mandy, Sean, Jane and Conor and me (Andy) . What a fantastic evening!?! And hope everyone who came had a great time. Obviously the show carries on until the 10th of May with each of the artists in on each day. For more details of who is in and when see after the link. We will be showing images of the inside of the show but we do want people to come down to the show so to see the work itself - http://www.overlooked-sheffield.blogspot.co.uk/p/special-dates.html
(this photo is from early on in the evening am very touched by the numbers of folk who came, more photos to come)
'Overlooked' - drawn from the works of 5 contemporary Sheffield artists who all share a common interest in exploring the unseen and mundane. Focussing on marginal, liminal spaces that most people wouldn't give a second glance. Creating observational paintings that use landscape to create a narrative and emotional tension.
'Look beneath the surface, let not the several quality of a thing nor it's worth escape thee' - Marcus Aurelius
