It was a successful week. I stewarded most of the time and saw some old friends, made some new ones, and had many interesting conversations with visitors about the exhibits and the nature of political art. During the week I sold 11 postcards and shared some work electronically, while Katie sold one of her 'Transient Skin' body pieces.
Over 30 survey forms about Art and Politics were completed by visitors. There were some really interesting responses but, in a nutshell, most of the respondents (over half of whom were artists themselves) welcomed politics in art and thought that it could help to make a difference. There were also some very positive unsolicited comments about the exhibition itself. Here is a selection of photos:
