Art market and workshop

While my 'mini' show was running at the Eco Park, I also took part in their summer arts market on June 24 to help promote Harena Now (see Fig 1 and 2) and other work. On arrival at the market I discovered that one of the images had fallen off the wall, and another was … Continue reading Art market and workshop

Open night at Eco Park.

I was ready at 6pm, with tea, coffee and rum punch on hand. I had allowed for up to 30 guests. Only 6 came, with a handful of people wandering in from the Otter Surfboards open evening taking place on the same night. In one sense this was a disappointing turnout but it had been … Continue reading Open night at Eco Park.

Show promotion for Eco Park venue

Having decided this exhibition was to be a 'mini' show of Harena Now, I did not promote the event as widely as I intend to promote my larger show in July. Having said that, I did use social media, online networks, noticeboards and via the venue to give it a plug. In Figs. 1 to … Continue reading Show promotion for Eco Park venue

Installation day – June 22

Having chosen not to frame my work, and having researched my chosen magnetic hanging system, I was feeling quite assured that the install for this first 'mini' Harena Now show at Mount Pleasant Eco Park would go quite smoothly. The venue had had a theatre performance the night before and I had the option to … Continue reading Installation day – June 22

They will be sending out their June newsletter in the next week or so and including details of the exhibition. They are listed below Figs 1-3: I have … Continue reading Marketing for first show

Fish Factory and Photolab visit

I popped over to Falmouth Uni's Photolab today to collect my test print. I am perfectly happy with my choice of paper for my final show images. I have opted for the Premium Fine Art-Hahnemühle Photo Rag. It gives a beautiful soft texture feel, and kept the whites white while the colours resolved at a good … Continue reading Fish Factory and Photolab visit

Pull out the stops

There are things I really need to get on with. Much of my plans and musings are going on inside my head at present. The big house move is over and its time to unpack the photographic boxes so that I can begin "living my work", as my lecturer Prof. Wendy McMurdo told me I … Continue reading Pull out the stops

More exhibition ideas

As usual, I'm magpie-ing between ideas of how to show my work at a variety of locations. Hopefully after today, I will have a more fixed idea of where I will be showing but at present I have secured time with the Fish Factory in Penryn from Thursday,  July 26 for a week. The cost … Continue reading More exhibition ideas
