Abingdon Arts Festival - Blake to Vermeer

At John Mason School 'Lettermania - family art activities' were taking place, and looked very popular. Also displayed on the art gallery walls were letters inspired by the recent Peter Blake Lettermania exhibition, and done by local schools.

On the Market Place was a stall, plugging all the Arts Festival events over the next two weeks, including Bigging up Vermeer...

Over a period of 6 hours, 25 artists each painted a square.

I think they actually used the same squares used last year for bigging up Holbein which had been recycled.

Here is the finished work.

And here it is with the artists - each pointing to the square they did. It can be seen for the next two weeks, together with one by chidren, at the Guildhall.

There could well be better pictures soon done by the official photographer on the Abingdon Arts Festival website.
