To keep a long story short: I didn't get into Grayson Perry's art club, nor in the Royal academy summer show! Of course not! I went to see the show and there are just very few textile works anyway. Sad, that textile art is still not fully recognised as art in certain circles.
But apart from these little disappointments, the summer was great! Dorset Art Weeks was a blast. I exhibited in 3 venues, in Podi Lawrence's art studio on Portland, in the Nothe Fort in Weymouth and I also took part in the exhibition in the Jubelee Hall in Poundbury.
It was lovely to meet so many new customers and I met a few people which bought from me before, but I had never met in person. I sold a lot, which always leaves me happy and satisfied, thinking it was all worth while.
