The long gap between posts is entirely due to the above. I was invited to arrange an exhibition for Art on the Map, the Lincolnshire Open Studios network, at Grantham Museum.
This was a first for me: while I’ve had many solo exhibitions, and contributed to innumerable group shows, I haven’t before organised a 15-person effort – with glass, felt, ceramics and metalwork as well as paintings. As we had an advantageous deal with the Museum all the work fell to us – and mainly to me as I’d been offered the show in the first place.
Totally shattering! But I think it looks great, and despite the dire economic climate work has been selling well. Pieces bought for Christmas presents are being collected tomorrow and new work added.
Come and see it if you’re in the region : ‘Vaut le Voyage’, as the French say! On till the last day of January, Mon-Sat 10-4.
