Traces on the Telly - PVAF Exhibition
The PVAF exhibition Traces at the Fair Maids House was featured on STV News on Monday 27th. This was to showcase Platform but we were the main focus. Georgia Crook was also featured in the segment with her tree sculpture at AK Bell Library. Our committee member Dylan Gibson did the speaking honours and the volunteers, artists Lada Wilson and Christine Goodman (shown) feature getting work onto the screens. This is the LINK and slide to the 13.00 minute mark. Our local papers do not seem to have shown an interest unfortunately. We had an excellent and well attended opening with the deputy Provost Bob Band to officially open the exhibition. The exhibition itself is getting great feedback, people finding the work exciting and thought provoking. We are also getting people wishing to become PVAF members, hopefully some new committee members also. A big thank you to the numerous setting up volunteers and volunteer invigilators who have made this all happen. Also to Anne Daniel of the RSGS who has been so welcoming and helpful.
Don't forget that PVAF has a Facebook page and a Twitter account to help publicise events.
