COMA exhibition

On Friday night the COMA exhibition 'between the lines' was opened.  Some 30 plus artists accepted the challenge to do small art pieces (150mm square for 2D pieces or 150mm cube for 3D pieces). Each work were in some way based on a book the artists had read.

The exhibition is displayed on glass shelves in a prominent corner of Rosetta bookshop thanks to the owner Anne. The exhibition was opened by Ken Munsie - COMA coordinator and general herder of artistic cats. Interesting idea of bringing art and book together. And a compact exhibition - just shows that you don't always need the big gallery to create and exhibit.

Ken's piece - wood and hand made paper
Fiona's piece has a red dot
There were a few red dots on opening night. And the opening crowd enjoyed a wine or two to celebrate the event and gathering.

I was asked about my iPhoneography so I obliged with a quick demo.
