A group of students, many of whom are now members of Carousel, were asked to exhibit at the Groyne Gallery in Walton on the Naze Essex, as part of the Plinth Project by Sally Child the curator.
The Groyne gallery was founded in 2011 and is probably the largest gallery in England at low tide. However at high tide it is mostly inaccessible. This meant that the date for the exhibition was set to coincide with low tide, whatever the weather.
This created a few challenges as the work produced had to travel by train to Walton and then had to be able to withstand the probability of a force 7 gale, drizzle, or balmy sunshine. As it happened the day was grey and at one time the Groynes were bombarded with hailstones. The work gamely withstood the elements and so did the participating artists.
