An Evening Of Art Outdoors

An Evening of Art Outdoors

Starting up as a new creative events group we wanted to make sure that our debut exhibition was not only successful, but unforgettable. We decided to host our experience outside allowing both the artists and the guests to be inspired by the context of the arts surrounding as well as the pieces themselves.

Through this event our artists explored our theme of 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' in a variety of mediums and styles. The work on display ranged massively and included; Performance Art, Sculpture, 3D Design, Illustration,  Fine Art, Installation Work and Photography.

Due to the unconventional layout of our outdoors exhibition we decided to create a map, which would help people to navigate the garden as well as to provide details and information on the artists.

Our event took place in the gardens of St Michael’s Hotel & Spa in Falmouth, Cornwall.

 These are some of our sculptures created for our exhibition by Alistair Dean.

These photographs were part of an installation piece by Natalie Lauren based on the quote;
"With the juice of this I'll streak her eyes, and make her full of hateful fantasies" - Oberon

 Some of the illustrations created for our event by Briony Smith.

 As the evening began to draw in and the sun went down the garden seemed to come to life as the pieces of work started to light up drawing more guests in from the nearby beach to have a look.

 Involving our guests in releasing beautiful Chinese lanterns as it became dark created a lovely friendly atmosphere and rounded off our evening perfectly.

The evening was such a success and we are so grateful to everyone who helped us along the way, but particularly a big thank you to all of our contributing artists;
