I have just been proofreading my entry in the Frome Open Studios Guide, and I must say the whole event is looking very exciting. Quite a few ceramicists, so my inner critic (a particularly fierce beast) is already wondering how my work will measure up to that of ‘professional’ potters/artists… Oh come on Jo, believe in yourself for once!
Fortunately I have lovely artist friends who encourage me, including Linda Starkey in Yeovil, and I have just signed up for her evening course starting in April to get the ball rolling in making some new work. I will mainly be showing already existing work in Frome in July.
But before then is the day workshop in linocut printing at ACEarts in Somerton. April 1st, to be precise. No jokes please…
Time to get my blog up and running again – I have an exhibition coming up!
I have been accepted for the Frome Open Studios this July in a joint exhibition with my friend Viv Meadows, who lives there. We met at Bath Spa University on our degree courses, we mature students gravitating towards each other at shared lectures. She volunteers at
Black Swan Arts in Frome, and is currently working in print, as well as continuing her drawing and painting practice.
I will be showing some of my stoneware ceramics, but in a burst of enthusiasm coinciding with the first signs of Spring, I have just signed up for a lino print day course at ACEarts in Somerton (where I also volunteer, and model for life drawing classes).
Watch this space for further updates.
