Blackshaw at 80: Exhibition



Basil Blackshaw - Blackshaw at 80: Invites/catalogue/launch film/signage/press advertisements


Blackshaw at 80 is an exhibition of 40 works chosen by the Artist created over the course of his career, and can be viewed at the F.E. McWilliam Gallery & Studio between May and October 2012.

The 80 page hard-backed book was the biggest of the books I've designed for the Gallery, and being a fan of Blackshaw's work made it possibly the most enjoyable.

The fantastic mix of styles in the exhibition makes for a beautiful catalogue, which was a pleasure to design, and in honesty, it would have been difficult to mess this one up given the works contained.

The opening of the exhibition was a great success and so I took the opportunity to shoot a short piece that I hope will reflect some of the atmosphere on the evening.
