Excuse my indulgence in posting at the end of this entry a small selection of the comment cards from the Grounded exhibition’s first showing in Glasgow. The many comments received about the importance of preserving culture and sense of place support the aims of the exhibition and I felt that a selection of these insights were therefor worth sharing.
Glasgow workshops, talks and exhibition details are here An interview about my work with journalist Jim Gilchrist is on the Struileag website which can be linked to here or here. And the Digital Resources pages of the blog for further information are here and here. The introductory panel for the exhibition can be found here.
The Grounded residency diary entries begin here in Scotland and then in Australia here. This is a record of my thoughts whilst gathering the material. These thoughts and images inform the production but are not part of the final exhibition.
The exhibition is showing next at An Lanntair Art Gallery in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, from 13 September to 11 October.
So pleased it went well Judith. The comments are a testament to your vision
Some great comments Judy â you âve really produced something that people can identify with at quite a deep levelâ¦so your instincts and direction were spot on.
Iâd be interested to know what some of the other exhibitions were about as wellâ¦
Most of the events during the festival were performance based or music. The Culture and Festival programme is online at http://www.glasgow2014.com/news/features/introducing-festival-2014 But there also seemed to be many more events than in the programmes. Festival continues now in Edinburgh at the Fringe and Edinburgh Festival.
Ooh luvly !!! I’d post ’em too, if it were me ! It’s just terrific that it all went so well – but of course not surprising she added hastily. [grin]

These really are wonderful, Judy – you can see that what you are saying comes through brilliantly. I really like “. . . how much more there is that joins us than separates us.” Absolutely true, as all these comments testify!
