Kevin Griffin’s Omey Island: Last Man Standing exhibition & competition winners

30 Oct

If you couldn’t come  to Kevin Griffin’s Omey Island exhibition and you want to see what you missed out on, we’ve put a selection of images from the PV on the gallery’s site: http://one-and-a-half.com/index.php?/upcoming/kgpv/

The show went really well, and we’re thrilled with the feedback from our visitors. Thank you for coming if you made it, and we hope to see you at the next one if you didn’t!

During the show, we asked people to pay £1 (all proceeds going to Pascal Whelan, ‘star’ of the show) to enter our prize draw to win a signed print from the exhibition. We asked participants to guess the number of empty packs of cigarettes, etc, atop our ground floor plinth (as seen in the picture below).

We’re pleased to annouce that there were in fact two winners, who guessed the number 121 correctly. The two winners are Anna Faherty and Laura Stageman. Congratulations!

To coincide with the exhibition itself, Kevin Griffin’s book was published by Lost Cat and launched at the show. The book was designed by the gallery’s own Rhiannon Adam, and is available to order via ISBN 978-0-9926438-0-5.

We hope to see you at our next exhibition opening on the 5th of September, and then you can see what all the fuss is about for yourselves.

Horrorgami opening night!

1 Nov

Thank you to everyone who came down to see the opening of Horrorgami last night. It was fantastic to see so many of you there, and the feedback we received was nothing but positive, so thank you. 

We’ve had a huge amount of press in the lead up to the opening. So thank you to everyone who has featured our show so far.

And we’ve made Le Cool London’s selects for this week – OK, so it wasn’t “orifice” we said (it was actually “artifice” but we aren’t complaining. 

If you didn’t catch the show at the preview night yesterday, then we will be having a late night opening today, Thursday the 1st November, from 6:30 – 9:30pm for First Thursdays. Come down and have some Liquorice Allsorts and a drink on us for the true Halloween vibe.

Our next exhibition will be a bit of a departure from the photographic – this time we’ll be showing a selection of Kirigami artworks by Marc Hagan-Guirey, aka Paperdandy – read more on his dedicated website.

The exhibition will feature 13 paper sculptures of iconic buildings from horror movies, each presented on a light box, and the show will open to the public the day after Halloween (1st November).

The works will be available for sale in a limited edition.

Please visit the page on our website for more information.
