The Shape Open Closing Party Thanks to all those who attended the Shape Open closing party on Fri 28th March at Lewisham Arthouse. Artists and audiences travelled from around the country, and in once case all the way from Finland, to help us to raise a glass to the end of a successful 6 month exhibition tour. Once again - the Shape Open has enabled us to build our network of artists who are challenging perceptions and encouraging new ways to look at disability. We are immensely proud of this year's show and were surprised and excited by your response to the 2013 theme 'Disability Re-assessed'. Glancing through our Visitors Book, audiences were equally enthralled describing the show as 'beautiful', 'blunt-speaking', 'full of feeling' and 'weird but amazing'! Details of this year's Shape Open will be announced on our website later this year. Thanks to Nunnery Gallery, Chocolate Factory, LCB Depot, Lewisham Arthouse and to our patron Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) for all your input and support.
