I had a great time to day at our Losing the Thread exhibition at Bampton Gallery. I spent the day stitching and talking to visitors. I find talking about my work helps me to reflect on my own practice, about what I am doing and why I work in a particular way. It is always a rewarding experience when visitors appreciate some of the hard work and thinking that goes into my work.
A few of the visitors to West Ox Arts gallery today had travelled quite a distance to see the work on display, which was much appreciated. The last day of the exhibition is tomorrow, wonder if there will be many visitors, the weather is supposed to be awful. Its the wettest drought I have ever known.
It feels quite odd that this exhibition is closing, as it has been one of the best we have staged to date and the response from the public has been so positive.
Now is the time however for me to reflect on the response and take this work further. With all the positive responses to my ideas I cannot wait to get back the studio, I still have the enthusiasm and passion to take this subject matter a lot further. So exciting.
