Friday 3rd October 2008 saw the opening of the first Medway Eyes collaborative exhibition at the Brook Theatre Gallery in Chatham. The work involved in organising an exhibition is immense. When so many people are involved, the shortlisting alone can take forever. Before anything even makes it onto the walls there’s decision-making, printing, measuring, glass-cutting, framing, promotion, more measuring, headaches and, in the case of this exhibition, carpentry. Luckily, Jack Picknell had that covered.
Look At Medway featured the work of 19 local photographers. We were overwhelmed by the volume of traffic through the door on the opening night, and it and remains the most visited exhibition ever hosted at the Brook Theatre.
Special thanks to Ben Jones, Burn Paper Tigers and Groovy Uncle for playing cracking sets on the opening night too.
