Burnham Art Trail Venue

I've been on a site visit, measured up, surveyed the space, gulped... but here is a photo of my venue for the Burnham Art Trail, 19th/27th June. Its a window in the Tourist Information Office. Bit of thought needed as it has permanent display boards, my textile art is too thick to slide into the frame fittings, so I guess it will be cv/artist statement. As you can see you can literally park a pavement's width away from the window....
Oh, and you will find me stewarding at the Museum on the afternoon of Monday 21st June.

Apologies a whole month has raced by. Little art work has been done because of the domestic situation, but good news DH starts back to work (restricted hours at first) this week. Unfortunately I've had 3 family bereavements in as many weeks, so time/focus is consumed elsewhere.

The good news however is that I am in the Essex Summer of Art brochure, along with Juliet I'm actually in it twice - well, once and smidge!!! On the Rochford Art Trail page there's a picture of my work, different from the one used on the website. And on the Burnham Art Trail page, the work the children are looking at is mine.

On the 24th April I attended the ERTF Conference - Juliet gave a talk under the Members Spotlight section, which went really well considering she suddenly had to cope with being pushed up the agenda. The Conference was primarily about Fashion, but even as someone who is not a fashionista I thought there were plenty of anecdotes, hints and tips to be universally applied to textile art. I'm looking forward to the next Conference in November, "Concepts and Meanings" - considering my book purchase at this conference was "Signs, Symbols & Ciphers" - I think it will be just what I want. Its in the diary, I've booked the car (we only have the one, so I'm in first!).
Hopfully when I next blog there might be pics of work actually made.... a huge list of ideas waiting to be implemented.
