This evening my husband and I attended Blackburn College Fine Arts degree show, featuring a lot of work by many talented artists but most excitingly for me work by ~RainbowSloth
! When I got there, Molly introduced me to her friend - "This is Jo. She's from the internet!"
There was a wide variety of work on show, from a room with a tv and body parts and furniture in odd places, to slightly spooky paintings of wedding dresses and brides. But it was a huge treat for me to see Molly's paintings, especially
that I am so familiar with from dA, in real life and real colour and real detail. And it was so cool to get to meet Kelly and Rachel too
Also, only one painting made me stop and think WTF is that?! What's that doing there?! D: Which is very often my reaction to entire displays at galleries. (And no, it wasn't one of Molly's paintings, or Kelly's amazing zombies or Rachel's fabulous etchings - how DARE you think such a thing! I am the girl who makes an effort to go to galleries, sees the work of apparently lauded artists, and goes WHY?
) So, I can confidently proclaim it BEST SHOW EVAR.
