Say Hello BS9 arts trail, Wave Goodbye N. Somerset Arts Week.

A lot of news to catch up on…

My open studio at North Somerset Arts week was a great success and was capped off by a Ceramics Raku firing by Brian and Nibs Fowler on the lawn on the final sunny Sunday afternoon. As well as being great fun it raised money by selling little Raku ceramics in aid of Black Nore Lighthouse.  Thanks to you all also for your card purchases and tea and cake consumption, in particular the huge amount of sponge consumed on the previous Sunday, which help boost the overall amount raised to £400, nearly double the amount raised in previous years and thank you Lois Pryce too for her support and paintings.

After Arts week I dropped off work at Clevedon Pier and am pleased to share that I got a commended in the painting category of the Clevedon Pier Community Competition and my work is on show in the Porthole room at the pier until the 4th of June. It’s a beautiful venue and the school category work on show is tremendous including a portrait by Zoe the granddaughter of Brian the raku potter, what a talented family. The winner in the Photography section by Mike Kleinsteuber really pushes  the boundaries too.

I’m still rearranging the house following the upheaval of having three rooms of paintings and ceramics and my lawn has not yet recovered from the kiln scorching but no time to rest there’s another art trial coming up. The BS9 arts trail covers Stoke Bishop, Westbury and Henleaze.

I’m really excited to see how this goes as it will be my first time in a Bristol Arts Trail and the venue is allowing me 5 metres of space in a hall with 11 other artists so I should get a chance to meet lots of people and get to know the other artists in the hall.

I’ll be at Elmlea school (venue 5) which is in the middle of the trail; a great spot. If you didn’t get a chance to see my work in Portishead then try and call past and say hello.
