Random Spectacular at the Fry Gallery: a journal

St Jude's have published a new edition in their Random Spectacular journal series to accompany an exhibition of selected works from the Fry Art Gallery collection. Ed has chosen a work by Sheila Robinson for the main the exhibition and written a short article accompanied by two full-page illustrations titled 'Working Prospects' for the journal.

The title of The Fry Art Gallery's main exhibition for 2020/21 promises an unusual mix of work from the permanent Collection, much of which has not been shown in recent years, or in the case of more recent acquisitions, this will be their first showing. 

The exhibition was due to open in April but this will be delayed due to the COVID-19 virus. We'll post further details regarding the exhibition opening as soon as we can.

The exhibition is not thematic and the eclectic selection of work has been largely curated by over forty individuals from various aspects of the arts world including visual arts, music, theatre, writing and design. Selectors include Angie Lewin, Jeff Fisher, Mark Hearld, Margaret Howell, Jake Tilson, Alex Jennings, Emily Sutton, Jonny Hannah, Eleanor Pritchard, Christopher Brown, Ed Kluz, Alan Powers, Rob Ryan and David Gentleman.

Accompanying the exhibition is this collaborative visual and literary journal of the same title designed by Brian Webb. This is published by our Random Spectacular imprint, with all profits from the book being donated to the Fry Art Gallery Building Fund.
