Yet another fantastic creative weekend at the Medway Open Studios. I was genuinely touched with the sheer amount of people who popped into my exhibition 13th-21st July 2013, BIG thank you to all 150 of you. Also a HUGE thank you goes out to all my models for this project.
It was wonderful to be part of the ‘Bishops Square’ artists and wonderful to have Creatabox at the square on Sunday. I’m so proud that many of my photos (both film and digital) and Beard mats and magnets, are now enjoying their place in your homes!
As noted in a previous blog, I have been so pleased regarding the conversations about film photography, peoples own creative ventures (or being inspired to undertake a creative project) commissions, and connecting Medway’s wonderful creative community.
A few more wonderful quotes from visitors:
‘our bodies do have stories’
‘so much creativity in the Medway Towns’
‘the hands in your photos are so tender’
‘love the honesty of the nudes’
‘it was wonderful to see both male and female nudes’
I’d also encourage visitors if you did get your programmes signed (to be in for a chance of winning £100 with your favourite artist) to send your programme to Heather Burgess, Director of Medway Open Studios.
I thoroughly enjoyed my travels around other artists of the Medway Open Studios, I was so inspired by nude drawings by Rose Melville at Sun Pier and Wendy at the West end studios. I haven’t painted or used pastels for over 10 years and pleased that this week I dusted off the pastels this week and got drawing!
