Artsweek coming up fast: private view 10 May at Longcot

We are all gearing up – well, panicking really – for Artsweek which we hang next Tuesday, ready for Private View on Friday afternoon.  It is exciting to hang a new show always and a little bit daunting because until we have everyone’s work in the room, it is difficult to imagine how it will shape up.  This year Shelagh Baxter is showing with Emma and I, which should be fun.  So let’s hope the sun shines and we get lots of visitors.

One lovely thing that is going to happen is that the beautiful church in Longcot will be open and full of flowers, and a window is going to be decorated for each of the artists working in Longcot.  Shirley (flower arranging artist extraordinaire!) is organising this and I can’t wait to see the result.  How amazing!  I never thought I would see my name in flowers…what else? I am off to Harris Manchester College this evening to a Private View of a whole group of linocut artists – Laura Boswell, Ian Phillips to name just two.  Their work is quite beautiful and expands your view of the boundaries of linocut as a medium.  Anybody in the Oxford area – go and see their show because I can guarantee you will love it!  and that is before I have been!  Signing off now…things to do, pictures to frame, labels to type…
