Artists held within the collection of The Fry Art Gallery have inspired many of the printmakers, painters and designers that we work with, and in recent years we've had the pleasure of reissuing wallpapers by Edward Bawden and Sheila Robinson as part of our St Jude's Studio Archive range.
So it was a great honour to collaborate with the gallery to create Random Spectacular at The Fry Art Gallery, an exhibition with an accompanying printed journal.
The title of The Fry Art Gallery's main exhibition for 2020 was an unusual mix of work from the permanent Collection, much of which has not been shown in recent years, or in the case of more recent acquisitions, this will be their first showing.
The exhibition wasn't thematic and the eclectic selection of work had been largely curated by over forty individuals from various aspects of the arts world including visual arts, music, theatre, writing and design. Selectors include Angie Lewin, Jeff Fisher, Mark Hearld, Margaret Howell, Jake Tilson, Alex Jennings, Emily Sutton, Jonny Hannah, Eleanor Pritchard, Christopher Brown, Ed Kluz, Alan Powers, Rob Ryan and David Gentleman.
Accompanying the exhibition was this collaborative visual and literary journal of the same title designed by Brian Webb
