Pop-Up Portrait Studio
- 16 — 17 May 2014 7-11pm
For one weekend only the Biscuit Factory hosts its very
first pop-up portrait studio inspired by figurative artist Peter
Hallam. Whether you’re a doodler with a pen or a master
with a paintbrush your portraits will hang in the mini Late
Shows gallery. The Biscuit Factory will provide the materials
and curate your artworks alongside their exhibiting artists
and one very lucky individual - as selected by Peter
Hallam himself - will win a very special prize. When you’ve
completed your masterpiece strike a pose as photographer
Sean Elliott will be in the gallery taking innovative shots of
visitors to take away with them (small charge applies).
Small charge applies, please contact venue for more details.
