???Illustrate Your Point 2010 is an exciting, fascinating, and special collaboration between 13 artists, members of Artsite; and 13 writers, members of BlueGate Poets. ??They have worked together in pairs, to produce art inspired by poetry and poems inspired by art for the 17th Swindon Festival of Literature.
?IYP is a opportunity for a select group of artists and poets to transmit their ideas and themselves, communicating both what they see, and what they do not.??The works will not be in accordance with any recurrent themes, movements or styles, instead they are created with the utmost emphasis put on the individual quality and beauty of each piece to allow the viewer to appreciate each work as a single entity. ??
The exhibition will incorporate some of the finest contemporary painting, sculpture, textile art, drawing and poetry that Swindon has to offer. ??Most importantly, Illustrate Your Point 2010 aims to provide an enjoyable and inspiring experience for all who pass through the Arts Centre doors. This is achieved through the great diversity of works and artists exhibited, and their exceptional quality appealing to all tastes and dispositions.??
All artists and poets are from Swindon or close by. They hope you enjoy their work! ??
