Really happy to announce that one of my photo has been selected to be featured in the Eyes Wide Open Exhibition at The New Vic Theatre to co-incide with the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Arnold Bennett, one of Stoke-on-Trent’s greatest literary legends. The exhibition will be showcased simultaneously with The New Vic’s own production, a play titled, Anna of the Five Towns. To celebrate all things Arnold Bennett, the local newspaper, The Sentinel has organised a photo exhibition to showcase photos from the five featured towns in Stoke-on-Trent featuring their past and present glory. These towns are Hanley, Tunstall, Longton / Fenton, Stoke and Burslem.
There were over 900 photos submitted for the selection process from the The Snapper Squad team (which are currently standing at 400 members on their Facebook page). Out of the 900 photos only 33 photos were selected to be exhibited. The Sentinel then printed these photos, framed them and has exhibited them at the cafe & shop area of The New Vic for display throughout the duration of the play which is from from 26 May until 17 June 2017.
The play, Anna of the Five Towns is an adaptation of Arnold’s most-loved novel which tells the absorbing love story of a spirited young woman, Anna Tellwright, set against the backdrop of life in the Potteries. Here’s my photo submission of the old Twyford building which was selected. Do try to catch both the play as well as the exhibition if you can.
Two of my photos have been featured in next year’s Biddulph Calendar which is filled with lots of beautiful photos of local landmarks .
How much does the calendar cost and where can you find them?
The calendars are sold for £3.50 each at Biddulph Town Hall as well as several shops around the high street like the balloon and card shop as well as the jewellery shop.
I have submitted two of my photos for an exhibition at Biddulph’s Open Art Exhibition held at Victoria Centre down at Station Road in Biddulph for the Biddulph Open Art Exhibition and glad to say they have been up for viewing the whole of July. This exhibition features not only photographs but also paintings, drawings, sculptures, textiles etc. Out of two photographs, one of my photo is also for sale.
For those wanting to still catch this exhibition, the opening hours are as follows: Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm while Sundays from 12 noon to 4pm.
Its free hence just turn up, you are also welcomed to vote for your favorite art. Here are some images of the exhibition.
Proud to say that out of three photos which I submitted to Keele University for the Three Counties Photography Exhibition, one of my photo has been selected and will be displayed for viewing from 16 February to 16 March 2016 from 10 am to 3pm at the Art Gallery at the Chancellor’s Building. The 3-C Open Photography Exhibition is an annual show displaying some of the best works from photographers based in Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. There were about 80 photographers who submitted over 200 outstanding photographs for consideration and over 100 photographs have been selected to be displayed. Here are some photos taken of the exbition.
