- Our exhibition, GO FIGURE, is a mixed media show selected by artists Wendy Elia, David Cobley and Anthony Connolly, from an online submission call. Works included take their point of origin, or departure, from the human form….The show will be open from 11-3 from Tuesday to Saturday up until the 1st of September.The private view on the 19th of July was a well attended affair with both participating artists and guests gathered to here the announcements of who would win the GO FIGURE prizes.CONGRATULATIONS go to Millie Gleeson, who took the first prize of a solo show at Guggleton next summer, and to Sasha Constable, Sue Baker and Matthew Hayward who were awarded a joint show to follow Millie’s.Thank you to all the 25 artists who were eventually selected for the final show, and whom Guggleton hopes very much to be working and collaborating with in the future.
Thanks so much to Anthony for delivering such an entertaining and informative workshop on Friday. The 9 artists who attended all not only enjoyed his teaching and direction but were imparted pearls of wisdom a plenty. The next opportunity to hear some for yourself is on Thursday September 5th and there are still a very few places left. Thank you also to our resident photographer, Sally Evans, for the images below.

Artists whose work is through to the exhibit will be emailed over the next couple of days, but in the meantime here is a sneaky peak of the upstairs gallery where final selection has taken place….
