Del Whitticase, one of theartists involved, said: "The first challenge was in trying to comeup with something that could be better than Larkin withToads!
"The second is that there werefour of us all feeding from the same pond. I was concerned that wemight all be looking at the same things and might therefore developsimilar ideas, but thankfully they are all verydifferent."
Elaine Burke, Partnerships andArtistic Director of Three Ways East, the company behind SwervingEast, said: "When we began our search for artists we were inundatedwith the most amazing applications from all over the world, whichillustrates the global reach of Larkin with Toads and the eagernessto be involved in Swerving East.
"The next step is to get thesupport of more businesses to fund the delivery of Swerving Eastand to take the exhibition to other parts of the region so we canget the feedback from the communities who supported Toads soenthusiastically. Our networking event at Beverley Minster was akey part of that process and we are extremely grateful to Rollitsfor their sponsorship."
