Swindon Open Studios

My studio is nearly ready for visitors to Open Studios this Saturday and Sunday...... its looking very colourful. I have lots of my work on the walls, and I shall be working in the studio all weekend and look forward to chatting to visitors about my work and what I do.
Do have a look at the Open Studios website here all the participating artists are listed, there is a map too so you will be able to find everyone. Let me know if you can make it.

Empowerment Exhibition - Private view

The Empowerment Exhibition - Private View was an inspiring and not to be missed event. 180 people attended this creative experience, curated by Shanta Ranee.
The presentation was multi media.... using computers , MP3 files, headphones and movie/still visuals on the digital projector.... as well as traditional reading and live music and singing. The static visual work decorated the walls... poems were presented to be read personally on the walls... but they were also " performed".
A couple of comfy seats and a table on a carpet were in the centre of the gallery, for people to sit and listen or read. 50 shades of grey was also available to read on the table.... this exhibition focused on female empowerment..... the next exhibition features male empowerment. They have a hard act to follow!!!!
