'Street' Art

Art in Street, Somerset...

Yesterday evening i ventured out into deepest darkest Somerset to see the new Elms Lesters exhibition Natural Selection. Featuring the likes of Futura 2000, Delta, Darlek, Ron English and Jose Parla, it was a high quality show with some very impressive works on display. And all in a small art college in the sticks!

It was great to see original canvases by artists whose work i am familiar with via the internet - there really is no substitute for viewing original works up close. There were also a lot of giclee prints from Adam Neate displayed in another room, but they were disappointing when you see the impact of the original works he produces - one of which is in the main show.

Get yourself down there for a look - i think the show is on until 12th December. Highly recommended!
