ArThurs Panorama Diorama

The installation Panorama Diorama is based on the Victorian era portraiture of the same name. Large scale landscapes have been painted onto canvas, with accompanying props. Individuals and groups can choose their own paradise setting from the selection to be photographed with. The installation is housed in a gazebo and is currently touring events in Bristol and beyond. scroll down to see what happened at St Pauls Learning and Family Centre Winter Warmer, The Celebrating Age Festival, M Shed, a street party in Greenbank and St Pauls Picnic.

Scroll down to view yourself, friends family and the people of Bristol with penguins, garden gnomes, cake and other interesting things.

ArThur’s Panorama Diorama visited M Shed – the museum showcasing life in Bristol. Like much of summer 2012 in England it was a very wet day, hence   M-Shed was very busy. The children were particularly interested in our collection of props

The end of the day, Ben organises the penguins, while Louisa imagines she’s having a nice cup of tea.

After the wettest summer for 100 years a few streets in Greenbank, in the east of Bristol held a street party on a sunny September afternoon. ArThur’s Panorama Diorama joined the residents, some of whom had their photographs taken when they weren’t painting their wheelie bins, throwing water bombs, partaking in silly races, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time.

ArThur’s Panorama Diorama visited The BIG St Pauls Picnic, another sunny day, a lovely mellow afternoon of music, puppets, cake and general happiness.

    OMG, that wretched tractor!!! Seriously though, a great selection of photos that brought a little lump to my throat as I reminisced about all the wonderful people I met through this group. Also a little ire raised about short-sighted “cost saving” measures that led to its demise.

    Lubs & xxx’s from Andy (the hairy bloke in one of the early pics).
