Queens Hall does Falstone Show

Scanning Falstone Show 2013
Gallery One, The Queens Hall, Hexham.         
Saturday 18 January - Saturday 1 March
Free Entry
no booking required
Scanning Falstone Show is a ScanLAB project that has used 3D scanning technology to document the 2013 Falstone Border Shepherds Show, a traditional village event in rural Northumberland.
The project enabled villagers and visitors to experience how this state of the art technology works while also creating a long-term legacy for a show that has been running for over 100 years. This exhibition presents a series of films generated from the scans as well as still images capturing individuals, animals and produce from the show.
Scanning Falstone Show was commissioned by Kielder Art & Architecture with support from Arts Council England, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Queen's Hall Arts.
