89. Cathedral 90 - Toby Wood

89. Cathedral 90 - Toby Wood

Day 8(b) – so while at Peterborough Museum I go and take a look in the gallery. It’s hosting the Open Exhibition which runs every year in Peterborough and is on show until 26th May. It’s their 4th visual arts competition.

It’s an exciting platform for local creatives and there were over 600 entries from over 240 artists across the UK – WOW! So what delights are on show? I was quite surprised at how many pieces are in the gallery…a wonderful variety of works that have something for everyone depending on what artwork you prefer.  There are printmaking, painting, photography even knitting! There are in fact 100 to look at so you’ll be able to take your time.
I haven’t taken all 100 photos but here’s a glimpse of what you can view while there – a few which caught my eye for being different, colourful, intriguing, clever or just plain brilliant.
