Here are a few examples of our BAF2017 artist. Please pop back soon for details of this years exhibitors.
Bulwell Library Book Club ‘The Idylls of the King’ Project – Oasis Salvation Army Cafe
This City Libraries/ Nottingham Castle project was undertaken by ladies from the Bulwell Library Book Club and was inspired by the frieze by Dame Laura Knight which was on display at Nottingham Castle.
During several art and creative writing sessions, facilitated by Rosny Hayward and Rosie Garner, the women spent many hours working on the project which resulted in five ‘life’ streams issuing from a book. Each stream represents the life and or philosophy of one of the women in the Bulwell book group and follows weeks of thinking, laughing, talking, creating, discovery, and the gelling of a multitude of different ideas into five clear visions. The frieze was displayed in the old Bulwell Library until it moved to the Riverside.
