It has been lovely to be a part of two ‘real life’ exhibitions recently. I received some photos of my work at the opening of Un/Framed – a selected hoop art exhibition touring Switzerland at present. The photos show the vernissage at the museum in Winterthur with Annina Pandiani – a professor at the University of Bern, giving her opening remarks.
Closer to home, I was delighted to have my (at present mystery!) single cover design selected for the final Secret 7’s exhibition in Greenwich at the NOW gallery. The exhibition is raising funds for the wonderful Choose Love Charity. It is great to be exhibiting alongside 700 artworks including examples from Lubaina Himid, Anish Kapoor, Tacita Dean, Mark Wallinger.
The Gallery is tucked away on the Greenwich Penninsula opposite the O2 and there is parking nearby. It has become the new ‘Design Quarter’ as you can see by the hoardings surrounding the construction area.
I was also pleased to contribute to the fundraising for the ‘Art of Kent’ auction recently. My little piece ‘Home Over the Rainbow’ raised £ 175 for the Heart of Kent charity.
I’m continuing to support the Artists Support Pledge – selling work through my website shop and online. I have been able to send a regular additional contribution to our local food bank as a result. I am setting up an archive page for larger works, which will be available on an enquiry basis.
Back in the studio, I am making detailed plans for my solo exhibition ‘Well Travelled’ at Ruthin Craft Centre next year. I was also pleased to receive a report from NEWCIS, after delivering workshops through them and the centre over the past two years.
