I think it was an amazing success. I am still astonished at how many pieces I sold at the open evening.  I have therefore probably covered my costs – maths still to be done. Attendance was about 150 for the open evening, and 277 over the next 16 days, including two evenings of talks, and a writing workshop, which were all well-attended and interesting. Thank you all who came, to those who wanted to but were too busy, and to all who wrote in the comments book eg

‘Fabulous exhibition with such a wide range of extremely interesting techniques and layering of thoughts and research.’
‘A fascinating room – every exhibit generated a discussion. Well done.’
‘Both moving and beautiful.’
‘…excellent use of colour or lack of colour.’
‘Wondrous collection of intense work, so carefully researched and realised. So hard to do!’

Writing workshop: Writing A Migration with Sarah Hymas

Feedback on Writing a Migration / Where are We Going?

“I really enjoyed Catriona’s work and it transported me to different parts of my life as well as imagining what it may be like for others in their given situation:  its scope is huge.”

“I was very inspired during my time in the gallery and I was challenged by using different pieces of art in the same piece albeit on the same theme. The pace of the workshop and time given to each part of it was just right in keeping me on my toes in the creative process.”

“I felt it was a great way to respond to that exhibition and had a distinct sense of being only able to happen then – those fleeting moments so characteristic of migration.”

“It appeared to me that the old room, the beautiful exhibition, the random movement of the people and the words spoken had made a single magical entity. It was amazing!”
