What an incredible day folks! The sun shone, just a few droplets of rain, but nothing much perturbed the crowd on the day.
Thank you to all the stages, drama and dance, Thirst, School of Popular Music, BBC Introducing, thanks to Mark Guillou with the GAC acoustic stage, plus the endless wonderful bands that played on the day.
Such a lot of work and preparation goes into this, the behind-the-scenes work, the publicity, the sheer legwork, and when our community pulls together like this, we can put on one memorable day!
Lottie and Marcel (plus some very strong helpers from the Vale Earth Fair collective, thank you !) built the white box, which started as an empty white shell, which evolved like a new born chameleon, into a spot-covered installation, in the style of Yayoi Kusama. It changed in so many different ways as the spots increased in number.
All the stallholders were there, bright and early, out in full, displaying their products, creations and wares, there was plenty to see – such as Guernsey antiques, handmade soaps, local books, beautiful paintings, jewellery, exquisite embroidery, garden decorations made of driftwood, jams, poems, endless ideas and produce, from our community.
We also spoke to many people about new projects, potential stalls, spreading the word of what the GAC does, and what we can give to the community, of which arts Sunday is one of them.
Thank you for supporting the Guernsey Arts Commission.
