First Exhibition Curated and Exhibited

I had the opportunity to abuse the hall in the auction house I work at while there was a break in sales. Why not turn it into an art exhibition space! Artists from around the UK hung their work and bands played. There were old friends, new acquaintances made and opportunities to be grabbed by both hands. For a first exhibition at the auction house and for many of the artists it wasn’t too shabby at all. Have already been given the green light for the next one. I still have some prints and larger canvases for sale. Contact studio@shellystillphotography.co.uk for more info

Art Exhibition


Pitts Rivers and Natural History, Oxford

Spent the Sunday in the best museums in Oxford. Pitts Rivers and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. The added bonus was to meet Ben Garrod and get to talk dead squirrel tactics for a bit (thanks sir!).

I discovered a few things. I am not longer freaked out by human skulls. Elephant skulls however disturb me greatly. Dinosaurs still rule. *Shelly Still, 35 regressing to 10 year old*

Oh, and speaking of squirrels, this little dude followed me back to the train station.

The Family

A quick photo of the completed ‘family’. A muntjac, rabbit, badger and three very weathered sheep skulls. Looking forward to getting the imagination on them. Already commissioned for a voodoo style photo for a band… Should be fun! Or very macabre.
