NEOS 2012 @ Junction Arts & Visions Photography!

Well we only covered 2 spaces and on the last day of NEOS but it was good fun all the same! The first stop was a 2 minute cycle from the flat to Junction Arts & Gifts. Junction work hard to show work by both established creaters and crafters as well as showcasing fresh talent from Grays School of Art. They also show a wide range of work from screen prints, paintings, mixed media & 3D work, sticth craft, ceramics and jewellery. I really like the lay out of the shop but its a bugger to photograph, that's why YOU should go down yourself and have a look! Kelly McAllister's jewellery pieces really stuck out, just need an excuse to buy something!

And through a chance conversation in Junction we found out about another show just down the road at Ruthrieston Community Centre where the Visions Photography group meet every Thursday. Members of the club set up stalls showcasing their photography work with lots of nice landscape and wildlife work and a mix of digital and conventional photography. Everyone was really nice and it was great to see some familiar views of Aberdeen captured from a different angle!

Anyway I might actually pay a bit more attention next year and try and cover more NEOS fun, I just hope Slav will still be around to pull funny faces wherever we go!
