More on Sketching – DAC : CAC (Shifting Perspectives)…

14 08 2008

As we mentioned earlier (see previous post) Craft ACT’s fabulous two-week-think-fest Sketching – DAC: CAC (Designing a Capital: Crafting a City) is on the verge of cranking up again. So it’s time to rattle those dags and put together an art work for Shifting Perspectives II; the one exhibition of the year that’s guaranteed to be a happening thang.’ 

This year’s thematic is Objects of Power. 

Be brave, be involved, go crazy. And yes, we know it’s only about twelve days away – so be spontaneous, people, think fresh! Or failing that just dust something off from your studio shelf that fits the bill (…ah, come on, you know you’ve done it before!!)

Last year’s inaugural show was a beauty; a marvellous mix of work from a very diverse group of bods. We don’t have all the titles unfortunately but we do have images of most of them, so we thought we’d upload it all into two posts, just to give you a better feel for the event…
