My group exhibition at the Didsbury Lawn Tennis Club started yesterday, and runs to the 2nd October.
The canvas on the left is the finished piece using the luggage tags pictured below, though apologies for the quality of the photo - you'll have to squint hard to see them!
We had a mini "Meet the Artist" session today; it's always fun eavesdropping on people's conversations about your work before they realise you're the artist! My favourite comment today was from a young boy who stood in front of one of my canvases and stated "it's weird - but pretty!" I liked that, I may use it!
I'm exhibiting with 3 other artists, all of whom are amazing!
Lynne Duric paints the most beautiful, soft and atmostpheric watercolours -
Simone Ridyard (who is a practicing architect - can't you see that in her work) paints gorgeous and amazingly detailed landscapes, both urban and rural (Simone has also recently opened an etsy shop)
and Gemma Walker, who is exhibiting her wonderful, re-cycled textile art (this one is quilted plastic bags!) but who also makes the sweetest little knitted and fabric items (I love her knitted cupcakes!)
