Water Fest and East Reading Festival

The Pictures of Reading project held its inaugural exhibitions at Water Fest (16 June) and East Reading Festival (17 June).

The initial 38 paintings were mounted in RG Spaces’ tent and the exhibitions advertised on the information tricycle (this year ‘dressed’ as Reading Abbey Gateway in honour of the reopening of the Abbey ruins).

We were overwhelmed with the enthusiastic reception, reckoning we had several hundred visitors in all – some concentrating hard, taking part in the ‘Where are they’ competition.

We aim to find other fun places to exhibit paintings as they come along.
