Ebrington Launch Night

After two years of work we finally had our launch night on Saturday, to celebrate the opening of our exhibition at Ebrington Square, Derry-Londonderry.  We were delighted that 50-60 people braved the monsoon conditions to join us for a tour of the exhibition, followed by a drinks reception during which we had a surprise visit from someone from the Turner Prize organisers who asked if any of our visitors wanted to be participants for one of the Turner artworks.  Exciting times!

The guys at BT Portrait of a City had set up some gazebos to serve as our venue for the night which worked brilliantly.  It allowed us to project our images on to the walls of the Clock Tower and it also meant that visitors could view the pictures that were commissioned by the BBC and were formerly exhibited at Stormont, and now at the Verbal Arts Centre.

So if you’re having a wander through Ebrington Square to see the Turner Prize exhibition at Ebrington, or just passing through then take some time to have a look.  We hope you enjoy the pictures.  Our further exhibition of images at the Verbal Arts Centre in Derry-Londonderry lasts until October 26th.

Many thanks to everyone for your support in helping to make this happen!
