Art festival buzz

There was a lovely buzz about the towns of Huntingdon and Godmanchester during the festival over the weekend and it was great to meet so many local people with an interest in art and crafts.

My work was displayed in the assembly room at Huntingdon Town Hall alongside permanent work by the likes of Gainsborough! I enjoyed the juxtaposition of old and new.

The Bridge Arts Festival this weekend

I’m looking forward to setting up some of my paintings in Huntingdon Town Hall for the Bridge Arts Festival this weekend, and seeing the other exhibits. The festival involves local artists, performers and crafts people from in and around Huntingdon and our European twin towns. A huge effort has been made by Huntingdon and Godmachester Twinning Association so I hope everyone enjoys the weekend’s displays!

The full programme and a map of venues can be found here. I’m in venue number 1!

Secret Postcard Sale tomorrow

The Secret Postcard Sale at John Hughes Arts Festival will take place 6.30pm – 8pm on tuesday 12 February in the Bawden Room at Jesus College Cambridge. I’m looking forward to seeing the show which will be a great opportunity for punters to pick up miniature art works with price tags to match. I love this accessible format which removes people’s fear of making a ‘mistake’ when buying art. See it, like it, buy it!51752253_2714001418625069_4963168373652324352_o

John Hughes Arts Festival

I will be donating work to this year’s John Hughes Arts Festival, taking part in their Secret Postcard Sale. As the sale is to be anonymous I won’t be sharing images of the work until after the sale.

The festival sale is a lovely opportunity for me to gauge interest in recent developments that I’m working on which the small pieces I’m donating are representative of. It’s also great to be making a contribution to the festival events alongside other local artists. gallery1

Featured on COAX publicity

I’m delighted to learn that my image has also been chosen for COAX printed materials. Here’s a detail of my painting ‘one in four’ looking great on an official poster (with thanks to Andrew Oliver the COAX designer.)

Now showing at: Oxfam in Huntingdon

Following my participation in Cambridge Open Studios I’m delighted to have been invited to take over the window display of the fantastic Oxfam bookshop in Huntingdon high street.

Currently showing is my red circle grid (water colour and emulsion paint on canvas, 1m x 1m) and some framed etchings.

It was a great experience showing my work from home as part of Cambridge Open Studios this July, and having had the chance to visit and get to know so many other local artists too! Here are some views of my rooms.

Preparation stacking up

I’m enjoying reviewing my work and deciding on what to hang for my Cambridge Open Studios weekend in just over a month. I’m really looking forward to when I can finally start hanging the exhibition and arranging rooms with plenty of extra work for visitors to rifle through… In the meantime it’s tricky to find space to make new work with pieces stacking up while I’m deciding whether and how best to show them.
