New Show

Spent most of today hanging an exhibition with friends and fellow artists.
For a couple of hours all that could be heard was the clump of hammers on picture hooks, punctuated with the odd softer thwack and muted swearing.

By the time we stopped for lunch, the combined efforts of thirteen artists were pretty much where the curators wanted them.

I have gone very ART this time, even producing an installation ! Part of "Ghost Bike" is pictured above.

If you want to see the finished piece, and are in the vicinity of Blickling Hall during the next month, drop in. The show is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00m till 4.00, till the 24th September............Or there will be pictures on here from tomorrow evening !

The private view is Wednesday evening, 5.30 to 8.30, bring your own mug and a bun.

Oh, and I nearly forgot, this evening I went to a private view at the Sheringham Little Theatre. The exhibition of Karen Bethell's photographs is a little gem. If you are passing by don't miss this collection of warmly observed moments of humanity.

Looks really interesting and love Blickling so will try and swing by. Not going to make any comment as to your installation - would show my total ignorance on arty matters. Does look interesting though and a real departure from your usual genre.

Did you do any sketching on holiday?

Hey MMoF, nice of you to drop in.

The installation is a bit of fun really, just playing around with an idea.

As for holiday sketching, I took a book and some charcoal, but shamefully didn't do any work at all !!

At first I thought you said you'd spend the day hanging with friends and other artists, and I thought "what a dude" (ie surfing vernacular), then read it again and looked at your pictures and thought "what an incredibly talented dude". Honestly, Knifepainter, I'm not joking, your pics are fantastic.

Wish we were nearer your exhibition, we would be there definitely.

Hope it goes OK.
