I’m pleased to announce that “COVID -19 Part 1” has been selected for the ArtisTTable ‘Art in the Time of Corona’ international on-line exhibition. The exhibition is available to view via the Gallery website throughout Spring 2021.
“Welcome and we appreciate that you are visiting the ArtisTTable’s 39th online exhibition, Art in the Time of Corona. It’s been a crazy ride the last many months. 2020 showed us a lot of new things. Many of which we never thought possible let alone anything we could imagine in our own lifetimes. Our theme for this show has tried to address some of these challenges if you will.” – ArtisTTable.
“When we began in 2012 our vision was to create a place for artists to share their work. To provide artists a professionally curated online space would be a value-added experience for both artists that have an established online presence as well as for those that are newer to showing their art. Exhibitions are generally themed to give artists something to work towards. Juror’s are selected to curate the individual shows to insure that the work is of the highest standards. The juried process is one that has always be one that gives greater prestige to the art that is included in the show and those that are awarded special recognition. Over the years, it has been our great pleasure to have presented well over 30 of these exhibitions.” – ArtisTTable Online Exhibitions.
I’m so happy to share that “Covid-19 – Part 1” has been selected to appear in The Stitcher’s Journal December 2020 Edition. Caroline Zoob contacted me during the November lockdown here in the UK. We chatted about my work and she asked if I’d like to share this piece in her publication.
“The Journal is produced quarterly. It is a sixty-page, advert-free publication about embroidery and embroiderers, with an emphasis on vintage fabrics and those who use vintage materials in their work.” – Caroline Zoob.
I am pleased to announce that ‘Pandemic Object 2020’ has been selected for inclusion in the ‘Artists Responding To’ Postcard Project Book. Pen drawing onto card ; Size 10cm x 15cm. This is the third piece of art I completed during Lockdown #2 in November 2020. The others are ‘4 Hours in History’ and ‘Self Portrait’.
“The Postcard Project has been an incredibly moving and emotional project. 2020 has been an unpredictable year, consumed by a global pandemic, environmental turmoil and political warfare, but we have also experienced community and action
…. At the beginning of November 2020, and the start of the UK’s second national lockdown, ARTISTS RESPONDING TO … sent 200 postcards across the UK to 200 artists. These artists were invited to reflect on the year 2020 and create artwork directly onto the postcards. The postcards involved in this project have been curated into an Art Book. The artworks in this book share personal experiences that we can all relate to, and although they are small in size, they are hugely powerful
….. Seeing how much this year has affected every artist in such different ways has really put this year into perspective. The book allows us to experience the artist’s stories in such a raw and honest way, which is sure to evoke a whole array of emotions for our readers.” – Artists Responding To.
Artworks will be on exhibition in 2021 (dependant on Covid restrictions).
