Confirmed artists so far are Vicky Roden, Gill Goodwin, Sumiko Eadon, Thomas Shelley Smith, Andrew Messenger and Scott ‘The D’ Dalloway.
Do you want to join them?
Closing date for submissions is Saturday 16th October – you must email us at email@example.com with an image of the work you want to submit. Time’s a ticking, but together WE CAN MAKE THIS EPIC!
More info to come very very soon!
So, we did another flickermob, touring two cities and one town in less than two hours! pics follow…
Now, onto the rest of the documentations! gallery tab and oddly obtained footage to follow soon…
After much swearing and faffing, the flickerbook is now completed!
We are planning another flickermob for the 4th of September – and we want you to help. You have until Saturday 21st August to think of and submit a theme, and we’ll be choosing one via a lucky dip. that will give us all two weeks to create a piece of art based on it, before we travel around the region showing ourselves off.
you can submit a theme by posting a comment, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the facebook group here – join in, we’d love to hear from you!
some initial photos of the flickermob
full post coming soon!
tomorrow sees the first garret flickermob (flicker rather than flash, as it’s on a smaller yet more involved scale) where the intrepid garreteers will be heading into Walsall to form a human gallery wall
it’s an exhibition that is simultaneously brief and permanent, public and private, exclusive and yet open to all. It also fits it with ‘exhibiting on air’ idea, free to enter, free to view with a permanent legacy online!
If you want to be part of the gallery, head into walsall for 11 o’clock tomorrow morning. The mob will start at approximately 11:05, the cue being the arrival of the garreteers at the fountain on the Bridge (between two of the towns most famous public artworks, the Sister Dora statue and the Hippo). simply line up with your artwork alongside us!
Everyone who takes part will be fully credited, and by joining in you are agreeing to have your image and artwork filmed for the youtube video
see y’all there!
welcome to the blog for ‘Yard Sale of the Garret (exhibiting on air)’. This is an artist led search for space, and an attempt to prove to everyone exactly how much can be achieved when a group of people pull together and pool their resources. To this end we are planning to take over an empty shop in Walsall town centre and turn it into a gallery, so check back for the hows, whens and whys.
