AIR open 2017

Palin, Tom (2017) AIR open 2017. [Show/Exhibition]

Abstract

AIR Gallery is located in Altrincham. It launched its first event with this exhibition in 2017 and has maintained a busy exhibitions programme since. The open competition showcased multidisciplinary artists working in the field of contemporary art, and featured a diverse collection of artworks that were selected by a judging panel from hundreds of applications. The exhibition launched on the 10th August, and visitors were encouraged to vote for their favourite work as part of our People's Choice Award, with the winner announced during a Closing Ceremony at the end of September. The event received sponsorship from Jacksons, GreatArt and Hobbycraft. AIR Gallery is part of A4 Studios CIC, based on Grosvenor Road, Altrincham. The selection panel consisted of Alan Baker, Richard Baker, John Lockwood and Becky Wild. My painting was called One Fine Day, and was painted in enamel on oak. It was the first enamel work I had shown, and formed part of a small group of works dealing with similar concerns. I am particularly interested in landscape painting and the possibilities of picturing, and also in the material, surface properties of painted objects.
