The group moves on, some to university and others continued at Ware College. Those still at the college had to participate, produce, curate and provide professional material for an exhibition, hence the reason for this event. ‘Ephemera’ comes from the Greek ephemeros meaning lasting but a day. We called ourselves Group E2, originating from the studio we worked in. We were inspired by a recent exhibition in West London ‘Crude Oils’ by Banksy. This took place in an empty shop turned art gallery. The group, consisting of 17 exhibitors, staged a fine art exhibition at No 61 High Street, Ware, a 16th century shop previously occupied by Woollatt and Coggins. This was the first show of its kind by students from the then HND/HNC Fine Art programme at Ware College.
