Reading Arts Week 2013

Well what a great week it's been.  Reading Arts Week kicked off on the back of Water Fest on Saturday 15 June with the Art Village in Forbury Gardens.  Despite the rain it was really quite busy and there was a great lively atmosphere with some great music from some of the Reading College Music Tech students & bands.

Throughout the week there were some other events including a fashion show in Market Place.  Then at the end of the week we saw the kick-off of the Reading Arts Week exhibition at Reading College.  The event was combined with the Reading College end of year show with music and an art exhibition of the students' work.  There really were some great pieces and some really thought-provoking installations.  Here's one of my pieces hanging on display.

There were a lot of great paintings from other artists, here are a few I really liked...

I have to say, as always the week was incredibly well-organised by the lovely Chris Brant.  The idea behind Reading Arts Week is a great one, it's really inclusive and does a great job of bringing together artists in the area as well as providing a platform for new and developing artists to show their work.  I'm already really looking forward to next year!
