In 1999 Andrew Wood celebrated 30 years as a professional artist by holding a retrospective exhibition of his work. The director of the Stroud House Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in the centre of Stroud, offered the space for this exciting event. The gallery space occupies the ground floor of a large and imposing Victorian commercial building. It is a large, light and generous space with a window shop frontage on two of the four sides. The basement has the same dimensions without windows.
There was a total of 120 pieces including early ceramics from the artist’s student days at Falmouth School of Art and covering all the different phases of his career. On the last day of the exhibition, filmmaker Pip Heywood arrived with his camera and quietly and unobtrusively walked around, filming the entire exhibition. The result of that visit is this (13 minute) film, Andrew Wood Presents.
