we Are Connected

June 20, 2017

Up since the 15th June and on through Saturday 24th June, there’s still time to get to Barnsley and see We Are Connected.

The Private view was brilliant and I’d just like to say a great big thanks to all those who came to see the work (and me too), it was lovely to see you all and have you participate in curating the exhibition.

I’ve been using instagram as a part of the exhibition so please pop over to see what went on…

If you get to the Civic, delve into my archive, held in the boxes in the window, and curate an exhibition of the work that resonates with you. Then instagram it, so we can see your choices!

Time and the journey

June 07, 2017


It’s been 3 years!

I’ve been working on an MA in Fine Arts with the Open College of the Arts in the UK and next week is the final exhibition. Being part time over three years meant that it’s been impossible to anticipate where I would be at the end of it and it has been a journey that’s for sure.

I have met all of the cohort online, there’s 10 of us, from 6 countries and we’ve met via google hangout, sometimes several times a month over the years, but we’ve never all been on one continent together…

That’ll change next week though when we hang the exhibition! Finally we will be connected physically too – the journey has a destination and it’s Barnsley!

The exhibition:
We Are Connected – will be at the Civic in Barnsley, UK

The private view will be on Wednesday 14th June at 6.30pm – want to come? Just let me know!
I’ll be at the gallery also on Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th, please stop by and say hello!

So what’s the exhibition about? Who are the 10 artists?
