Slideshow link for exhibition images

I've embedded a slideshow of the images from the exhibition, follow this link and take a look at the gallery! Thanks to me, Nigel Bird, and Mike Woodman for the photographs. I think there should be photographs of everyone's work. If I have missed anyone by mistake, send me your own photos and I'll add them. Thanks, Jane

Private view - 4th June 2011

The final event for the Museum before it closes this venue, was our Private View. The party was combined between celebrating ourselves and our work, and thanking the volunteers of the Museum and the work that they put in to the collections. It was very sad to think that the Museum was closing, but I think we gave it a fantastic send off. We look forward to hearing news of the reopening at Slough Library.

It was a very appropriate finale. We had many lovely comments that the Museum volunteers liked the work on display because it was based on interpretations of Slough and the Museum - it was particularly relevant to them as people who live and/or work in Slough and they felt that we had really done the subject justice.

It was great to have a busy and lively event that was also recognised by the Mayor of Bracknell Town, Councillor Gill Birch. She had met our group during one of our meetings in the community centre in Bracknell and was really interested in what we were doing, so we were delighted to be able to show her the end result.

The Curator, Eleanor Pulfer talking to visitors. We owe Eleanor many thanks for giving us the opportunity to do this project, and supporting us throughout.

Thank you to Nigel Bird for the photographs. Nigel did a fantastic job of capturing the event for us.
