I have to take my hats off to the guys at Created in Birmingham. Not only have they taken the bold and brave move to set up shop in the heart of the Bullring, (rubbing shoulders (and knees) with the likes of Apple and H & M) but they have also allowed us to plant a browser stand in the shop to display our prints. The shop displays a wealth of Birmingham talent – photographers, artists, crafters, and jewellers in a cool, friendly atmosphere that has a distinctive arty vibe without the austerity or elusiveness of an art gallery.
Delighted is an understatement. More so for Dad who has sat on a pile of fabulous photographic prints and negatives for what seems like an eternity. It has been a delight to work with him on restoring and printing his work and has given him a wonderful new lease of life and interest in not only his own work but in art and photography in general.
How long Created in Birmingham will be with us is a mystery, their short tenancy will end in May 2010 and to succeed further they will need funding or a big break (or both!) Pay them a visit and show your support by going to their blog.
We wish them continued success and support.
