During this difficult time I have been continuing to make work at my studio, The Wolf at the Door.
York Open Studios came and went; the physical studios weren’t of course open, but York artists created displays of work in their windows using the hashtag #openwindowsyork2020
I am delighted to say I have sold quite a few paintings online through this virtual display.
The #openwindows2020 initiative originated with Artists’ Open House in Brighton and Hove. I would have been participating in this, at Art in Bloom, last May . Again, many artists presented window displays of their work, this time under the hashtag #openwindows2020.
Five of my paintings are available exclusively through the Pyramid Gallery, York, via a virtual exhibition called, appropriately, ‘Strange Times’.
I have added a page with images, details and prices of new work available through artist Matthew Burrows’s intiative Artists’ Support Pledge. (This is for work selling up to £200 only).
There still aren’t many real-life exhibitions any time soon. If you feel the need for some art in your life and your home, I am happy to send work by post, postage at cost price. (I can gift-wrap it on request.) I have sent out a number of pieces since lockdown.
It’s always a good idea to request additional images of paintings as they look when hung in a real room, in different lights, at their actual scale, etc. Small light pieces are inexpensive to send. Larger, heavier pieces need more protection and of course cost more.
