On 15 May I was nominated by the group to draft up the press release for The Orangery exhibition. I shared this with the group on our Facebook page and also emailed our tutor Edith Doove:
Title, 2014 Art Exhibition
The Orangery, Saltram House
Plymouth College of Art BA (Hon) Fine Art, Critical and Curatorial Practices third year students are delighted to present a new body of work in The Orangery, Saltram House. The exhibition aims to encourage the visitor to reflect on Saltram’s stunning environment by considering the auditory ambience of the historic grounds.
In collaboration with students of the music production centre Deep Blue Sound Ltd the main featured work will comprise of a contemporary sound piece to compliment the ground’s timeless landscape. By combining audio recordings of Saltram’s natural surroundings with classical music and relevant literary spoken text the artists hope to provide the visitor with an inclusive sensory experience – evoking ideas of escapism, aura and place.
Unfortunately, we didn’t receive all of the details regarding dates, logos to be included and the celebratory reception event until the end of April, and therefore did not have a lot of time to get the Press Release finalised together as a group. No one had mentioned the Press Release since the template had been drafted up and since we needed it to be completed asap, I created a new Press Release with all of the additional information and posted this onto the Facebook group page:
I emailed the Press Release to Judith Robinson and Edith Doove who asked me to send it to Jake May from the Plymouth College of Art Marketing Team:
