My Artists Open House exhibition opens this Saturday and I’m delighted to report that I do actually have a show to hang!
My time since last week’s post has mainly been spent cutting mounts, selecting, mounting, framing some paintings and wrapping others that will sit in browsers.
Thinking about the exhibition hang, I was keen to have a new half imperial sized portrait format painting. I’ll already be showing a few paintings that were in last year’s exhibition but didn’t want to rely on too many of them.
I was still feeling inspired by the subject of last week’s painting and had sufficient fresh memories and photographs of the scene to try a different view and orientation.
Here’s how I got on:
I was pretty pleased with how this turned out so it was mounted and framed almost while the paint was still drying. This is the final painting past the finish in time for the exhibition.
Everything now is focussed on getting the exhibition hung, which I’ll be doing on Wednesday night. The preparations have all felt a little bit torturous but I’m also feeling a tremendous sense of relief from having pulled it together!
Art at Zerbs will be Open from 11am – 6pm every Saturday and Sunday in May. It will also be open on both bank holiday Mondays in May.
I’ll be there on both bank holiday Mondays and on Sunday 19th May and hope to be painting on each occasion. Should any readers be in the vicinity, please do drop in – it’d be lovely to meet you!
