Press Release: 04/01/2008

A second-year photography student at Winchester School of Art is now exhibiting her work at the view, Winchester’s visual arts space on Bridge Street.

Kay May’s exhibition ‘One Way or Another’ runs from Friday 4 January to Friday February 1 2008.

This project was prompted by sitting in the waiting room of the chiropractor in Parchment Street, looking out through the archway and reflecting on the huge and interesting variety of people who live in Winchester and pass through the city.  Each image is different and yet the setting is the same.

Reflecting on her work, Kay May said: “From the courtyard of 53 Parchment Street in Winchester the passers-by are perfectly framed by the wooden-cobbled entrance. They scurry, skip and stroll backwards and forwards, one way or another, snapshots of busy city life.  One sunny day in August 2007 I stood in the courtyard and captured this activity – this work is the result.”

Until recently Kay’s work was on display in Winchester Business Centre at 10 Parchment Street.

the view is managed and funded by Winchester City Council’s Arts Development Service with the help of artist and teacher Ali Eales, and is for the display of new work created by local people who are either studying art or are early career artists and craft makers.
