I know, I have neglected my news, I guess the Pandemic with all its difficulties is to blame. But I actually have some news. To pick up where we left, my picture with me and my dog, was shown in London in The Knitting and Stitching show, which was great. Du to Covid, I didn't go myself, but people who went sent me photos.
At the same time, one of my works was accepted by the Society for Embroidered Work for their exhibition in Rome Art weeks. The exhibition was a huge success and I'm pleased that again textile artists could prove, that they have a place in the art world.
" Stitched art is art!!!"
Now I have some excellent news about the virus project! From the 14th of March the Virus Project and other Pandemic related work will be on show in Dorset County Museum in Dorchester! The exhibition will be on till June and I'm really exited about it! The last weeks/months the curator Lucy and I prepared everything and the most fantastic thing is, that many of you, the people who donated for the fundraising project for NHS charities together and the people who took part in my Instagram challenge, will be on show too! ( Just the ones who gave their permission obviously).
I can't wait to see it all live and I hope many of you can go and have a look too!
Grayson Perry's Art Club!! Who has seen it? I absolutely loved it and it was one of the bright lights during the lockdowns.
Now he is doing it again and I submitted a picture!! The theme for the first episode is 'LOVE' and I submitted this:
And guess what!! I got a phone call some days ago ! I don't know if I will be part of it yet, they just thought it was an interesting picture and story and they asked me lots of questions! Fingers crossed!!!
Then I decided to be really brave and I submitted a work to the Royal Academy Summer Show! It would be sooooo amazing if my picture would be chosen, but I know, the chances are minimal. But one can hope, right?
The last news are about Dorset Art Weeks 2022!
After last years online event, this year will be a real art event again. I will exhibiting in 2 places. In The Art Studio in Fortuneswell on Portland with my dear friend and brilliant artist Podi Lawrence and also with a group of Artwey artists in Weymouth in the Nothe Fort. I'm sure both venues will be brilliant and I'm very busy right now to create new work. On show for the first time will be some of my sculptural textile work and also OOAK art dolls.
Please put it in your diary: 14th till 29th of May
That's it for now !
