The Hang - UKCPS 12th Annual Open International Exhibition 2013

Further to my Review - UKCPS 12th Annual Open International Exhibition 2013 - one of the comments I made was that it was a pity there were no photographs of the hang of the exhibition on the website.

I take that comment back! I've now found the UKCPS's Facebook Page and the Gallery of 16 photos which display the hanging of the exhibition in the Pavilion Gallery at Patchings.

I still think it's a pity that the same photos aren't also available on the UKCPS website - however since this is a Facebook Page the content is public and can be viewed by all members and anybody else who would like to take a look. 

It just goes to show the value of an Art Society having a Facebook Page!

I'm not going to comment on the hang - I'm on my way out the door for a day's sketching (in coloured pencils of course!) on Hampstead Heath - but I would encourage you to take a look and see what you think.  

For me it certainly highlighted a few works which caught my eye.  Size as always helps. Matting and framing make a very big difference to presentation. I was particularly impressed by the presentation of Kate Clarke's work which looks very pleasing - and innovative.

Regular readers will be aware that one of the things I do in reviewing annual exhibitions is highlight "the look" in terms of current trends in hanging - and also how work is hung.

I think it's about time I pulled together the themes which run through those posts - and I must get on and do a series of posts about matting, framing and hanging artwork in exhibitions.  They've been on my "to do" list for too long!
