Summer Exhibitions

Managed to visit most of my list of exhibitions I wanted to see, apart from one major exception. I never made it to Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs before it closed at the Tate Modern. 

A trip to the House of Illustration for the Quentin Blake exhibition is also still outstanding too - but that one is on til 2nd November.

100 Trees

100: Making of Trees was an exhibition at ONCA (One Network for Conservation and the Arts) in Brighton. It consisted of 100 artworks by local artists on display for 100 hours. Each artwork was for sale; the money raised will pay for 100 trees to be planted around the London Road area.
