I've got five of my Instagram pics in the Beer is Art Spring/Summer Exhibition, Brewdog, Leicester, from 28th April 2016, until...whenever the Brewdog summer ends! I'm guessing they'll be there until September if the brackets hold.*
The pics are actually from the tail end of my pictorial grumblings "Leicestershire: A Difficult Place to Love" in which I photographed the many reasons why I'm disgruntled with the county I find myself in. I gather that there are people who truly love Leicestershire. Not me though. My whingings must have been as unwelcome as fingernails on the blackboard.
Still, on I went. Then I started to spend more time in the City Centre, and you know what? It's still undeniably grotty in places but I don't mind it so much. Perhaps it's because I spent so long working there but I actually have a kind of affection for it. And so I began to mellow.
Seeing as Brewdog is slap bang in the City Centre I chose these pictures for their Summer Exhibition...
And here's a couple of them hung. Yeah, I should have tried to do a good job but I was off to get my tea and head to a gig, so another time perhaps!
Thanks to Brewdog for having me again :)
* A debt of gratitude goes to JMD's Hardware in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire which was where I found myself with my family when I should have been at home being better prepared. The nice lady, in her post flood-damaged recently refitted shop, cheerily sold me brackets, screws, a drill bit and some really bloody strong glue, without which I would have had to forego submitting my pictures and the house mamil would have experienced a simmering resentment for the entire summer.
