foundry gallery show

Just been along to the Artists United show at the foundry Gallery. What a disappointment. Lots of 'daubs' masquerading as serious paintings that I doubt took anyone longer than five minutes to tosh out, then given a big price tag because it's 'art'. Then a few of the town's established artists displaying some of their lesser works that are obviously not selling elsewhere. The football/ Rooks theme is only addressed by about three of the artists. Some of the display was a mess and the gallery assistants couldn't have looked more bored or unhelpful. Really looks like it's been pulled together in a hurry and the quality of the work was not even good (with some exceptions). I appreciate it's a community venture and a worthwhile cause but does that have to mean sub standard work ? Previous years have been much better.
