Select 2014 at Newark Park

Exciting news about an exhibition at Newark Park in April. I’m one of a number of artists and makers invited to show work in an exhibition curated by Lizzi Walton of Stroud International Textiles as part of a series of linked events related to the symposium.

Newark Park is a wonderful National Trust treasure and was once a Tudor Hunting Lodge. Here 30 extraordinary artists will exhibit work. Among the work will be site responsive work inspired by the magical setting of Newark Park.

The exhibition runs from 23 April – 8 June and I will be running a two-day papermaking workshop on 10 and 11 May. More details soon.

‘Tonight I’ve had any cynicism that was setting in about the capital’s art scene, charmed out of me at two thoroughly fantastic exhibitions. The first: organised by a couple of ladies who under the name of @ZeitgeistAP are positively shaping the art world into something
A) more accessible B) more realistic and yet C) invariably vibrant. This is the right kind of innovation and boy is it refreshing. An antidote to the Royal Academy show’ Rachel Guthrie

Short but sweet treasure trove exhibition of works under £150.

Open Studios

Kingston Open StudiosOn Saturday 16 March 2013 between 1-6pm the Hawks Road Studios (where my studio is) will be open for informal visits. The studios have only just been set up so this isn’t really an exhibition although many of the artists will be showing new work. Do come in and say hello if you are in the area.
