Some handy tips from Miranda.
She talks to The Open College of the Arts about what she looks for in submissions to publications and competitions.
So here’s the evidence. The Private View went ahead, with over 200 people visiting throughout the evening. After a hectic few days, it was a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the first on going Tri-pod project development group.
Thanks to the lovely and talented photographer Phillip Reed for taking these photos for us on the night, much appreciated and to all who came out despite the riots earlier in the week, it meant a lot.

The install for the first Tri-pod show Nine-Point Perspective: Ways of Seeing at Hotshoe Gallery as London hit by riots
Monday evening and we start to hang the first Tri-pod group show Nine-Point Perspective: Ways of Seeing ahead of the Private View on Thursday 11 August from 6-9pm. Wood panels to be cut to precise size for snug window fit; walls to be painted; false walls built and shelves added.
Next, we head home and get caught in the rioting in Brixton and Ealing. Long night with helicopters and police sirens, huge plasma TV in box is thrown, and lands, in the front garden and loot stashed near neighbour’s bins, cars driving by picking up groups from the street, while smash and grabs take place up the road.
The next day the aftermath – local resident a 60-year-old is ‘critical’ after clashing with rioters reports local paper and news that the local Panasonic shop lost £200,000 of electrical goods, which could account for the TV.
