Carly Seller

Photographic Artist

Plymouth, United Kingdom
I am a photographic artist creating quiet, observant images that are concerned with the relationships people have with nature and environments. My self-initiated projects are research led, inspired by my interests in histories, human geography, literature and walking.

Work Experience

Four Seasons Art Festival

Project Manager (Voluntary)

The Four Seasons Art Festival was a four day event held at St Mary Magdalene's Church and Parochial Church Hall. I was appointed project manager after approaching the festival organiser, Diana Jones, to offer my knowledge and experience of putting on art exhibitions. My tasks involved everything from communicating with local artists and the community, creating documents including entry forms and letters requesting sponsorship, curating and installing the exhibition in the church considering the restrictions that come with using an ancient building and being available during the exhibition opening hours to support the volunteer stewards in their roles.
