B is for Book – Studio2 Gallery


Previous to the opening of the Drill Hall Studio I worked in a gallery called Studio2 run by Sue Tilley and Selena Smith before it closed in 2013.

The studio held monthly exhibitions from various solo artists but once a year a themed exhibition would attract a medley of artists -and one such exhibition was called ‘Funky Wagnell’s ‘ named after the Funk and Wagnell͛s encyclopaedia the gallery had been donated to use for artwork. The idea was for different artists from different mediums to choose an encyclopaedia and interpret something from the inside of the chosen volume. The criteria were to leave the spine intact and the book shape but pages could be reconfigured anyway we liked.

It was a challenge to get them all back together again!
