Last week we were asked in the comments why we did not include the dimensions of the works. This was an intentional choice. Leaving out the dimensions allows there to be an element of surprise when you come to the gallery in September to see these works hung. Some large, some small, these works will look quite different in person than they do online. Part of what makes this project interesting is the dynamic between seeing works online and then later on, in person. Our Window Wednesdays project on Facebook illustrates to us that our ‘fans’ enjoy us bringing the gallery to them through social media, but we’ve heard many comments that they are surprised when seeing the works in the gallery how different they appear. Size, texture, richness and tone are lost on screen.
Here are this week’s selections. Have your say. Top two choices will be hung in the gallery from 23 September, 2011 to 11 March, 2012.
