Lucy Kempton and Shellie Byatt are to curate the next open exhibition at the Artlog. I shall leave them to explain all. I do hope that some of you may be encouraged to join in the fun. This is the first occasion that guest-bloggers have been invited to the Artlog, and I’m confident that the project is in safe hands.
I promised to make a logo for Alphabet Soup. Of the several shown here, whichever is preferred will appear at the top of all posts relating to this exhibition, so you’ll always know when Lucy and Shellie are in charge for the day. Without more ado, over to them.
Call for Submissions
Following Clive’s alphabet primer, and the success of the maquette exhibition, and suggested first by Shellie, we would like to propose another on-line exhibition on the theme of alphabets, which we are calling Alphabet Soup. Beyond that description, we specify no other subject theme, so that people can develop their own; we only stipulate that submissions should be executed in black and white ( and tones between…) but with the possibility of using one accent colour per contribution – so for example, if ‘E is for Eve‘. she might be pictured in black and white but holding a red apple. With so many wonderful colourists among you, we know this will be quite exacting! However, for that reason it will, we are sure, provide an interesting challenge, and help the final exhibition to hang together more consistently overall. All submissions must include the lettering, so there are opportunities here for creativity on multiple levels. Clive cut all the letters for his Alphabet Primer from paper, and some of you may feel encouraged to try that technique yourselves.
