exhibition fail

A few weeks ago, we went to the Strong Island Exhibition in the Round Tower in Southsea – my intentions were to write it up before it had finished, so people could still go and pay it a visit. What actually happened was that I’ve spent every spare moment working on this pesky eBay shop, which means the exhibition is now over, and this is pretty much just a pointless photograph post. Sigh.

But, but, but, the artwork was immense, and if you visit this page right here, you can see a list of all of the exhibitors, with links to their blogs and websites. So not a completely wasted post – some of my favourite artists have been discovered by visiting links from other blogs. Get clicking!

(All photographs of things that aren’t in a frame on a wall are my own, so don’t go nicking off with them. Thanks!)

    I loved this exhibition! I'd love to get involved with the next one if they do one. I am now parading my strong island tote bag around and drinking strong island tea…was well worth the trip! I also got a free badge because i talked to the woman there. was awesome! (if freezing in the round tower!)

    Kate, we went during the day on the Saturday and it was still freezing then! You should definitely get involved, there's a few crafty-fair things that I'm hoping to do in the future. Perhaps we'll bump into each other!LM – shucks! I just use an Olympus point-and-shoot, then my beloved Picnik haha. Thanks for saying though, I do love photography. There were so many good pieces of artwork there, but the anchor was one of my favourites too 🙂
