The Pink Floyd event will be closing on Sunday – it was a genuine pleasure putting this together and I really enjoyed the pictures that were made by the many visitors who came by. Thanks, too, for making donations during the week that have enabled me to settle tier into September. Please keep donating, and keep the sim open.
We’ll be selecting the best of pictures from this event and making them into an exhibition – details will emerge in due course. There is still time to take pictures that could be included in this show – and go here for details of a picture challenge I issued earlier.
The Floyd @ Furillen exhibition will be on the lines of the “Furillen at its Best” show that has been hosted at Mareea Farrasco’s IMAGO gallery. This closes on Wednesday 20 July with a party …
As an event that really transformed the sim, Floyd @ Furillen will be tough to follow, but I have some ideas and will work on these later on this summer. I hope we’ll have one or two new buildings by then, too.
One very successful new building that was set up when the sim re-opened in June is the gallery situated on the sim’s southwest corner. So far this hosted shows by Laura and Gabrielle Swindlehurst, as well as an exhibition of Pink Floyd album covers.
The next show, opening imminently, will feature work by Ini Inaka. For me, Ini’s work speaks to some really personal questions in a very striking, distinctive and original way. So I’m very excited indeed to be hosting her work at Furillen.
Ini’s pieces will be for sale throughout the exhibition, which stays open until September.
