It’s been a busy summer of exhibitions.
Whitchurch Silk Mill – the backdrop for this show was the beautiful river Test in the heart of Hampshire. The Mill is due to be completely refurbished which will take 2 years. The Guild took the opportunity to exhibit here and hope to again once the works are complete.
Petersfield Museum – we took this exhibition down a couple of days ago, again a great location, this time in the heart of Petersfield in Hampshire. The Museum gave us a small room to set up and the Guild put on a beautiful exhibition. Exhibiting with craftsmen in a number of mediums incl. Stone, wood, metal, ceramic was a privilege.
Art in the Garden at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, Romsey, Hampshire.
Having dropped my work off in June it is now almost time to collect it again in October. My vessels have been out in the rock garden gathering water and attracting the birds as well as customers. I have had a good number of orders which is pleasing. The range of work on display and the beautiful setting makes it a very popular day out.
Vessels! at the Vessel Gallery London
This show was probably the most prestigious I have been part of and it was wonderful to meet so many fellow glass artists at the PV. Organised by the CGS (Contemporary Glass Society) it gave relatively unknown artists the opportunity to show their work in London. I am very much looking forward to the CGS Conference, the first of it’s kind, in the next couple of weeks.
Looking forward the Guild will be holding it’s annual show at Stockbridge, Hampshire. Planning is well underway and we are hoping for a brilliant show. This year we will be taking over both floors of the Town Hall. Most of the members of Guild will be taking part and I think there will be plenty of opportunities for some Christmas present purchases!
