Jon Bird Open Competition exhibition

19 October, 2016 to 25 October, 2016

There was an excellent entry of 39 exhibits for the Open Competition this year. Unfortunately, space constraints at the gallery meant that not all could be exhibited. The judges (Wendy Robinson, Lin Fletcher, and Lawrence Fletcher) have therefore spent a substantial amount of time poring over the entries to select 25 items for the exhibition.

The Prize Presentation Evening will be held on Saturday, 22nd October at the Fishslab Gallery.

The exhibits (and artists) selected are:

Michael Szpakowski      Paintings named after songs by The Fall
