Dear Nick

Many apologies for the fact we had the wrong date on the website for the closing date of Mark Wood’s exhibition! Very frustrating. I took the date from the Museum of Oxford website but wish I had double-checked.

I am trying to find out if there are plans to show his work some more as I know several people feel Mark deserves more acknowledgement.

Pleased to see that you were publicising an event close to me in Oxford I went along to the Mark Wood exhibition on the last day that you advertised, 22 July, only to discover an empty gallery. The exhibition had been taken down. I was very disappointed, given that like most disabled people it took me a considerable effort to go along. Maybe an empty gallery is a comment of sorts.
