Friday night was the opening night of the Scagglethorpe International Art Biennale 2018, surely a night to remember. Well, I can remember some of it. Openings are, after all, the best part of art exhibitions.
This one showed works (apart from my own) of Richard Barnes, Peter Coates, Tina Davy, Catriona Stewart and Simon Thackray. The theme 'Farmyard Animals' was scrupulously ignored in most of the works - another characteristic copied from our companion biennale, Venice. I did an interview on Radio York on Saturday morning (8.45 on the Julia Lewis show) and am still wondering if that was wise. It may have kept people away. Will there ever be another Scagglethorpe International Art Biennale? Some of my exhibits will appear on this website shortly.
