It’s been a week of words; with a poetry writing workshop, a well attended artist talk last night, and responses to the HINTERLAND exhibition coming in all the time.
It’s been a while since the installation and preview of HINTERLAND at Black Swan Arts gallery, and I still feel a little shell shocked from the extraordinary response the exhibition has received so far.
I have been so touched by the support, help & encouragement I have received for Hinterland, and it is time to express my thanks.
After two years of thinking & planning, and nearly nine months of developing & creating, I am happy to finally announce the dates of my exhibition
The opening of Zoomorphic took place last Saturday at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre, Cwmbran, Wales. Louise Jones-Williams curated this show, and I think she did an excellent job pulling together a wide variety of mediums and approaches into a well blended whole.
Since launching my crowdfunding site for Hinterland, I have received a huge amount of encouragement for this project. Not only can I now say my practice is, in part, financially supported by a group of wonderful patrons, I continue to be offered support in other ways too.
After a year of thinking, dreaming, planning, preparing, sketching, and making samples, I am finally able to start on this ancestral project about (self)compassion, forgiveness and belonging.
Having just come back from my final teaching ‘tour’ of the year in the Netherlands & Belgium, I thought it was high time to announce my workshop plans for 2017…
